Hi Rod,

If you are setting up a FCP suite, I would recomend you set it up right from the beginning. Of-course this means laying out money but doing it right from the beginning will save you time and money later on..

So I would recommend you get yourself a good firewire mixer, 2 channels ok, 4 channels better. Alesis makes some really good mixer/audio interfaces in Firewire and USB. Their popular ones are the 8 and 12 channel. This device gets hooked up to your computer via firewire, and is set up to be your input/output device for sound. Very easy to setup and very easy to use.

You should have a good set of monitors,again I use the KRKs studio monitors, but have recently bought a pair of BX8A from M-audio. They are phenomenal and have a tremendous amount of power. Those get hooked up to the main out from the mixer.

For Mikes, I use the AKG perception 200, and I built a small 6x6 sound booth myself, cause my macs, crank up some noise, when recording.

Setting up a system like this will probably cost you about $1200 USD, you can purchase these things from any of the common stores, B&H in NYC, Gotham, or Guitar Center, shop around for best prices.

For portable I was using the M-Audio FW 410 interface, I was using this on my powerbook, and it works great, it's bus powered, and have recorded directly into FCP, garageband, and Soundtrack, with no problem.

Hope this helps,
