I doubt if it's an issue on the soundcard.  We'll probably need more details so we can isolate the problem.

Are you using XP 64 bit?

This is usually a driver problem often related to your onboard sound. First try updating your audio drivers. Next try asio4all. If that doesn't work, then a new soundcard is in order.

While I've used blasters early on, I can tell you that getting a better audio card would mean less issues with recording. Not to say that blasters aren't capable since most early DAW software were designed for them during the dawn of the industry, it would be better if you invest in something more suited to recording, which includes drivers capable of low latencies.

Mixer is only part of the overall requirements. What you need depends on what you want to record. If it's only yourself, you can get by with a simple interface and no mixer. If you have several instruments that you want to record, then you can use an interface plus mixer or one of those firewire mixers (provided your pc has firewire). If recording a full band, then the equipment list get substantially more expensive.

do you think it would be worth the money if I get a macbook pro for audio recording?

Generally speaking, you can't go very wrong when using a mac, unless your DAW is pc only.

If you have the money go for Macbook pro.

Nasa preference pa rin iyan.  You still won't go wrong with Windows based laptops.  Also it's more affordable.

Macs usually have garageband if you get the complete iLife option I think, but Logic is a far better DAW for Macs, IMO. It IS expensive to get the full Logic install, you might want to try Logic express but at 10k or something, I would rather save up for the full Logic.

An alternative is to get Pro Tools. The newest version is native, which means you can use any hardware with PT. For audio, PT is a battle-tested solution. For composing, Logic is the better choice on the mac platform.

You still won't go wrong with Windows based laptops.  Also it's more affordable.

Agreed. But the better way to approach this is to "let the software decide what platform you will use".

Obviously, if your main DAW of choice is Logic, then you have no choice but to go mac. But if you use Cubase/Nuendo, Sonar, Live, etc., going windows is just as good, and you may even get a machine that is faster. For me, mac pricing can be ridiculous at times, but what you really pay for is platform stability... it just works. Personally, I prefer the tweakability of the windows platform.

Mga Sir, hihingi lang po ng advice/recommendations. i'm just a newbie in home recording
nagpaplano kasi ako mag setup ng home recording para sa acoustic. questions lang po:

1. Pwede bang guitar>effects>amp>laptop>software? hindi ba bibigay ang laptop ko?

2. What mic can you recommend for the voice recording?

3. What mic can you recommend for the drumbox/cajun recording? or pwedeng software po na magccreate ng cajun sound.

4. badly needed po ba ang mixer? kahit yung simple na mixer.

Amp should be mic'd.  Kung bibigay would depend on your laptop specs.

2. What mic can you recommend for the voice recording?

Kung di treated yung room, Shure SM57/58.

3. What mic can you recommend for the drumbox/cajun recording? or pwedeng software po na magccreate ng cajun sound.

SM57/58.  Puede software mag create ng drum/cajun sounds.

4. badly needed po ba ang mixer? kahit yung simple na mixer.

Puedeng wala.

Masklaro siguro kung ganito bro: guitar>>effects>>amp>>mic>>audio interface>>laptop>>software(DAW). Hindi bibigay laptop mo sir kahit Pentium4 pa yung model niyan basta may "solve" ka na audio interface like Line6 Ux1 or M-audio products.

2. What mic can you recommend for the voice recording?
Shure SM58 solve!! Mura, matibay, malinamnam tunog!! :-D

3. What mic can you recommend for the drumbox/cajun recording? or pwedeng software po na magccreate ng cajun sound.
SM57 naman!! Hehe!! Tapos masOk kung lalagyan mo ng kick mic yung sa butas for low frequencies tapos SM57 dun sa tap. :-D
Try mo FruityLoops for drumsounds software. :-)

4. badly needed po ba ang mixer? kahit yung simple na mixer.
In my experience bro hindi ako gumagamit ng mixer. Depende sa irerecord mo. Kung magrerecord ka ng cajun tapos dalawang mics gagamitin mo, masOK kung may mixer ka. :-D
