If you're just looking for a basic recording setup to get you started, I'd recommend a small USB interface like a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, a good quality dynamic mic (Shure SM58 will never be obsolete), Reaper for recording software, and Fruity Loops for programming and beat-making. If you want tutorials, there's loads of stuff on YouTube. Other than that, you know, stick with it, keep learning, and have fun.

thank you .... 

but i focusing to "BEHRINGER C-1U" .... balance between cheap and quality studio microphone 

for software i cant decide wich 1 to use ... Audacity or Reaeper , my hardware system is not high-level sooo..... i guess that the both of programs are kinda "lightweight"

i dont planning to make my own beats , so the process will be more something like a record orver beat/track

the problem is that i rly rly love these distortion vocals and distortion 808 bass effects .... will be great if some1 how have some kinda of experience of these things help me with these 2 effetcs ... just for beggining

Reaper hands down, just forget Audacity as a DAW.. it´s a great program, but more as an audio editor. Reaper has pretty good workflow for making beats also, and it can be expanded and edited nearly endlessly. FL is great and i recommend checking it out at some point, but since you have no experience with any program, you should just focus on one that can do it all to start with. Another great thing with Reaper is, that you can use it free forever. After the (generous) trial period the program will work without limitations. Reaper is such an amazing program though, that buying the licence is the right thing to do (it´s super cheap for what you get!) .

You really should invest on an audio interface rather sooner than later, whenever you have the chance. Focusrite 2i2 (and even solo) like FatherAlabaster recommended are great for their price. Even the solo and 2i2 studio packs are great value. They are so popular too, that it shouldn´t be too hard to find a second hand one to save some more money.

FatherAlabaster has a point with the microphone.. something like Shure SM58 will last you a lifetime, and will work in nearly any scenario you throw at it.

You have such a huge task ahead of you just learning the most basic stuff, that i would suggest just joining the official reaper forum, and starting with some beginner tutorial videos. Heres a good one to start with. Btw, don´t give up even if it feels hard at times, IT WILL BE WORTH IT! Also check Reapermania and Reaper blog in youtube.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
