    Hi Everyone,

    I've rooted around this forum a bit and you look like you all know your stuff.

    Im looking to build a basic setup from scratch and i am not sure what i need. Am i right in thinking i could get started with:

    Laptop
    Sound card
    Controller (e.g i have my eye on the X1)
    and any mixer (i'm thinking one of the mappable faderfox jobs?)

    Or is there anything i am missing? I already have speakers and amps etc

    Any ideas will be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    if you get an x1 and a souncard (audio 2 for example) you could consider buying an analogue 2channel mixer as well

    Headphones? Budget nearly €100 for a decent set. Some kind of case is also pretty necessary for gigs. Apart from headphones that's everything you need.
