Budget? What kind of music do you listen to? What sound signature or tonal balance do you prefer? What laptop do you have?

Buy an audio interface that can do stereo recording (pretty much all of them), a microphone or two that can work well with the built-in mic preamp, then some high impedance monitor headphones (many audio interfaces have a relatively high output impedance on the headphone output) or better yet active monitor speakers.

 

Then study the basics of how to position microphones - ie easy enough for the vocals on the center channel, but if you want the other instruments to create a sense of space you'll likely have to run two mics simultaneously then position the instrument as necessary (ie closer to one than the other).

 

Example shopping list (do read reviews though, check with pro audio forums):

 

1. Audio interface

2. Mic

3. Studio monitors (note that some are sold in pairs, some per piece)

4. Accessories - cables, mic stands, speaker mounts/stands, etc
