Long shot I know but has anyone here any experience with home recording? DS1 is a guitarist and vocalist... (he's 24) and actually very talented. His owns material is good (he works as a support worker but gets paid gigs in the evenings) and for a long time has wanted to record some of his work. However we have clapped out old laptops...nothing that can run recoding software let alone the peripherals needed. We are willing to buy what he needs....but really have no idea what that is! A macbook pro? (we are mac users here) Logic pro I assume... but what else?
