I've researched the basics I need, and I plan to begin by buying a condenser microphone, a pop filter, a recording interface (i believe that's what it's called) and build a very simple vocal booth in my room. Later will come the headphones and speakers.
Any tips on the brands I should get for the techno stuff? And could anyone suggest me a free (or very inexpensive) program for the song mixing? There are soo many out there it's hard to decide.
