I have a toaster and recently bought a laptop, and want to start recording and my goal is to make a lot of music in the future. For now I'm only interested in recording guitar, possibly 2 though in the future. From what ive heard, S/Pdif is the best way to go via kemper to interface. My computer has USB 3.0 but no thunderbolt. Also from what I've seen Presonus Studio One seems like a very good DAW. I'm playing thru a Headrush FRFR which I'm actually pretty happy with, and I plan to go DI monitored with the Headrush unless using monitors or headphones would be a better option.
So I wanted to see what interface, cables, and DAW and monitors/headphones you guys are using and how you like it/ your opinions plus any other equipment you guys are using for recording and production.
