Hello, supr noob here
Very very new to production, just had a recent spark of interest. After my hasty, eager research I have decided that the first piece of equipment I should purchase is an audio interface.
I have narrowed my choices down to: http://www.amazon.com/Native-Instruments-Komplete-Audio-6/dp/B004YPRPJ6/ref=pd_ybh_2 http://www.amazon.com/Focusrite-Scarlett-2i4-USB-Interface/dp/B009B15N0Q/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1407779768&sr=8-6&keywords=audio+interface
Can anyone recommend one over the other? Does anyone have experience with either piece? Are there better options for entry level audio interfaces?
I have a couple of MIDI keyboards and I am also interested in recording live audio for cello, acoustic guitar, and grand piano.
I have recently begun familiarizing myself with Reaper, and I think I will wait to master it until I move on to any other software. Does anyone have anything to say about Reaper?
Any other knowledge on getting properly set up would be much appreciated!
