Comments about Apple Complete Recording Studio with Mac Mini v4 (MD387LL/A):

(I'm writing this review for people who have little-to-no experience recording.) I purchased this all-in-one recording kit on an after-Christmas clearance a year and a half ago, on a limited budget and after just having had to put most of my regular gear in storage (following a big life change). I knew this was a "starter set," and generally I've been happy with the computer. The microphones come in a nice hard plastic case with perfect foam cut-outs inside, but in truth the case was nicer than either of the mics! The Mac Mini is a VERY solid computer and works well with Apple Logic Pro, but it has limits (i.e., once you start loading up a song with multiple audio and midi tracks, the Mac will slow down a bit). My package had small monitors...one of which did not work! This package appears to include Shure headphones. For a novice, I would NOT recommend learning to mix on headphones, but you DO need a set and the Shures would be perfect. I'd suggest purchasing a $100 pair of reference monitors (Alesis, M-Audio, etc). Also, I would recommend purchasing just an SM-57 mic and not wasting time with the two mics they've included: my experience was that the quality control in their manufacture was so poor that the recorded sound quality immediately led to frustration. Having some experience as an engineer, I didn't think it would be quite that bad...but yeah, it really was! Bottom line: it's hard to argue with the price of this all-in-one package, but the SM-57 is a great general purpose mic and will blow these two mics out of the water. Happy recording!

    Comments about Apple Complete Recording Studio with Mac Mini v4 (MD387LL/A):

    This seemed to be the perfect way to begin recording music at home for myself while I began the learning process. From the day the package arrived, this has been a nightmare for me! Not only was it nowhere mentioned in the description of the package that the equipment would be refurbished, but I was given a Mac Mini with a failing hard drive that wouldn't even let me turn it on. Dealing with customer service has made the nightmare even worse. The package came to my doorstep about a month ago and my issues with this product have still not been resolved by GC.

    I'm disappointed with how GC has been responding with my troubles. This is the first time I've this much trouble with anything from GC and their customer service almost isn't worth the risk of buying any more products with the chance of it not working and having to deal with customer service again.

    Very disappointed, unhappy customer.

    Everything Works Fine

    Comments about Apple Complete Recording Studio with Mac Mini v4 (MD387LL/A):

    This is a great way of getting started if you are interested in creating your own music. Everything works fine. Read the manuals (online user's guide) before setting up to avoid any damage to the audiobox! Also,Guitar Center has great customer service when it comes to protecting you against credit card fraud. They will make sure the card holder is the one making the purchase.
