    Software and Interface

    If it's a new PC then we can only assume it's Win 10, now the main question is what version (32 bits or 64bits). To make use of more than 4 gb ram you need 64bits. This means that if your win10 is 32 bits and you have let's say 16gb ram installed you will only be using 4gb ram.

    Tracktion doesn't bring those drums, they are free to download. I have used the 3 DAWS (Reaper is my main DAW) and to be honest Tracktion is the one that will get him going in no time. Cakewalk and Reaper have a bigger learning curve. And Cakewalk only works with Win10 64bits.

    Danny if all you want is to record and you don't have much knowledge I would advise to consider Tracktion (version 7 is totally free without restrictions), it is very easy to use. https://www.tracktion.com/products/t7-daw This intro video is for version 5 but is still relevant This is an in depth review of T7

    What microphone and why?

    Exactly everything depends on what you want them for, if you are just a home recording hobbyist then you don't need to spend your rent money on buying lots of mics, chances are you can do everything you need with just a SM57 and a condenser mic. There are lots of options that range from reasonably cheap with very good specs to more expensive ones but like I said before all depends what you're aiming for. My advice is this, unless you are trying to put together a studio for commercial use then just buy a SM57 and a good condenser mic like the Rode NT1. That will cover all your recording needs. I hope this helps.
  6. Are these new or used?

    Do I still need my M-audio unit?

    Do yourself a favour and do not use that M-Audio, i had one and never could make it work. it will cut off in the middle of a recording. The Zoom B3 can work with asio4all drivers. As for DAW I would go for Reaper or Tracktion T7 (this one is completely free and without restrictions). Tracktion is very simple to use and very Tape machine like workflow.

    In all honesty the strings sound very sweet, still need to try the brass but don't doubt they sound great too. Enjoy!!
