So I'm thinking of starting up a low-end sound studio and I'm looking for some software.

I already have 2 MIDI-enabled synths (Keyboard and Accordion), an older M-Audio FastTrack Pro (and cables, I tested it against my computer and I was able to get a basic recording going on so all of the connections are sound), and the demo version of Pro Tools M-Powered 7.

Here's what I'm looking to do:
Some acapella (including octave-up octave-down tracks for more solid bass and soprano)
Regular old multitrack covers

I'm thinking of getting the following things:
AudioTechnica 2020USB mic
CuBase Elements 6
AutoTune (I'm not sure which version I'll go with...)

What recording software do you recommend? I'm not looking for anything too fancy, but it needs to be very easy to use (I'm not familiar with the whole setup, but the Pro Tools interface is very confusing to me and even without the demo restrictions, I'm not sure I would be able to do a whole lot with it).

Will the AudioTechnica mic be good for both vocals and instrumentals (ie glockenspiel, trombone/brass, percussion)? If not, is there such a creature as a mic that will work both vocals and instrumentals while still giving a good sound?

Will AutoTune allow full-octave vocal shifting as described above?

Thanks for your input.
