The community is really good for advice but if you're unfamiliar with 
recording and such I suggest you read something. As you're a swede (no pun 
intended) there is a really nice compilation of recording articles in the 
monthly magazine "Studio". Unfortunatly there is just a pdf left. But here it 
is. I bought it just out of curiosity a few years ago and it was very nice 



PS. They have another nice compilation of articles, about mixing.
