    The drum software issue is a long discussion. I think the BFD progs are the best to begin. Never really managed to use anything else that efficiently (I had the Drumcore too and tried lot of other stuff).



    For the interface I suggest Mackie, M-Audio/Avid (I use the NRV10 for recording, concerts and DJ-ing), Edirol/Roland products. They are reliable and have support/forums.



    I use Tracktion (which is similar to Reaper) and besides those I suggest the Ableton Live. Used to use the other big DAWs, mainly Pro Tools, even translated the manual for Nuendo, but for my applications I prefer the single screen apps. Less headache

          From loop to get money off.



          It's not just the interface, it also comes with QUALITY instruments, synths etc and a stripped down version of cubase. All you need is this and an SM57 and a nady SCM1000 and you will be golden.



          AVOID Sonar like the plague. It is a buggy POS.

                  I'd at least consider Addictive drum software while you're at it. I know it made a huge difference for me from the built-in drum software in Logic.

                        Il pm you his email when I am back in the office.



                        The reason I recommend them is because mix and match for me has been a huge pain when it comes to compatibility quirks.

                          so the recording software that comes with it is good? also looking at this

                          i guess it makes sense to get the interface and DAW from the same place for compatibility reasons. im such a noob at this, lol

                            I tried pro tools demo with an mbox and it was buggy as crap on my win 7 64 bit system. But I did have an older Mbox than that one.

                              you'll want to be careful about how much software you run at one time as the processor (i5 mobile) and hard drive (5400 rpm) aren't the fastest. you'll track one or two at a time mostly, but all the tracks you've accumulated (unless deactivated) will take their bite of resource. now add plugins to process tracks, busses, masters, etc. you may hit a wall depending on how many tracks you plan on working with. my bud's latest effort had a hundred or so "tracks", should say pieces really, as that's how he works, keeping them all separate, but lined up on beat, etc. for playback.

                              record dry (if you can) and add plugins later during mixdown. you'll learn all about buffers (less for recording, more for playback) and all the other wonders of the daw as you go along.

                              good trackin' to ya!

                                I use Cubase as my DAW, just upgraded to Cubase 7, and it's great.

                                For drum software I highly recommend Addictive Drums, it's the drum software I use most.

                                I also have Superior Drummer 2 and EZ Drummer, but while EZD sounds good, it has less flexibility (pre-processed sounds) then SD2 or AD, and SD2 while it has awesome sounds, is too complicated for me personally with all the different options it offers.
