Fortunately, I get to work out of two pro studios every day. While recording bands, I use a Behringer x32, which is the best interface on the market. Protools is my standard DAW software. Waves Mercury is what I use to digitally Mix and Master. The room I mix and master audio out of is acoustically treated. So your songs will sound amazing.
