Hey,

I am looking to make some music at home. I have tinkered around a lot with Acid Pro and made some great stuff, (but using free loops, and using a crappy hookup for my electric guitar.)

Im wondering if there is a reasonably priced, but good kit that anyone can recommend.

Even just a decent synthesizer for like 200 bucks.

I have googled around, but am looking for someone that has done this at their home. Thanks for any suggestions.

have you looked into fruity loops? a group of us pulled off a hiphop cd worthy of any small town starters. the producer knows the ropes though, so theres not much advice i can offer.
theres a bleepload of plugins. plus with some saved money we ended up with a rec booth seperate from the studio, a multi media keyboard which helped out the quality.

I am looking for a good multimedia keyboard as well.

Thanks BlackSpyder....

I was thinking of getting a piece of hardware for this anyway...I may inherit a decent one from a friend.

well it already has Creox c but I prefer the stripped down feel of GNUitar. but a few pedal boxes will do the same thing as either. (I need to break down and buy a pedal box myself, I hate not have distortion when I play on my amp)
