where do i start to make music?

Joined Dec 21, 2005
i want to start making songs by having beats and rapping over them but what do i need ? i know this sounds like a real rookie question but please help. Someone told me that i need a mic with a net and audio interface. i also have garageband on my mac.
is that all that i would need or would i need anything else?

also what are some good quality mics that arent TOO EXPENSIVE for me just beginning? But at the same time, i want a mic that has real good quality to it when recording over beats not just some mic just to record.

Any info would be appreciated. thanks!

Whatever u do, don't buy a USB Condenser Microphone unless u have a lot of RAM or u'll have a lot of latency
Check Ebay for a decent mic and like TIME said, make sure ur audio interface has phantom power

1. get yourself a condenser microphone (check amazon, guitar center)
2. xlr cable so u can connect your mic
3. you're gonna want to get a stand and a pop filter
4. audio interface (also works as the soundcard) needs phantom power to power the mic
5. stdio monitors
optional: mixer

these are basic things you are gonna need if u wanna do some home recordings.
some good brands for mics are mxl, cad, studio projects, audio technica
