Want to record drums at home?

Just want to record them for personal use, maybe toss them up on youtube.

I have a 4 pce DW kit with 2 crashes, china, hats and ride.

Looking at buying a laptop to run Pro-Tools,or whatever program.

Where do I start?

    You'll need an Audio interface that accepts microphone inputs. The Lexicon Omega ($199) has two (so you can set up two mics). Whatever program you get (protools or whatever) will have mulitple tracks so you can add things as you need to. So you'll really need:

    Audio Interface

    1 or 2 Microphones

    well, first your going to need a pretty quiet place. then your going to need a mic, perferably not a crappy one. i use a blueball mic, and hang it from the cieling fan in my room. for audio recording, i use FL studios, but thats because i mix in beats to electronic tracks. you can use audacity, its free and it works. other then that just try not to **** up
