Recording Equipment is Expensive

Music Rec, Ohio

Friend at work has a band. They play locally and would like to expand. But... Studio Recording is way too expensive. Instead they've asked me if I could record with a computer. One could... With Ableton Software and a few pieces of Hardware. So here I come, on my knees, begging for about 1,000-1,200 dollars to get every thing they would need to make their CD so they can play bigger and better places.
