Re: Some Advice for a NOOb

Knowing your budget would really help steer you in the right direction. If on a tight budget, I'd say the Yamaha Audiogram series. You get a decent USB interface and it comes with Cubase software. I love mine! In fact, it's replaced my desktop multitrack recorder. Not sure if the Audiogram is made for the Mac, though...

Budget is the most important issue, and as an aside not using the purple dude on the left is always good, as that's kinda my thing...

Logic Express and Apogee one. Or Garage band and Apogee one. either way.

Made for mac, loop libraries, amp models all included. Apogee one can go Phantom powered, guitar straight and has a decent build in mic.

Re: Some Advice for a NOOb

The Logic Pro studio is an incredible value, I recoment that warmly! For drums, please oh please get Superior Drums from Toontrack, you will NEVER regret it!!

Re: Some Advice for a NOOb

Garageband which comes free with macs is pretty underrated, I used it before getting logic pro. Garageband also has built in amps and effects which may come in handy aswell.
Pair that with a decent interface and your sorted.
