A good, inexpensive resource is "The Musician's Guid to Recording Vocals"
. It's a "guerilla" guide that tells you how to get the most out of what you have--talent, room, and equipment.
I chose Reason as my primary DAW after having used Nuendo, Cubase, Sonar, and others. What others have said before is true. Any DAW will faithfully reproduce what you record. Your primary job is to make that input as good as possible.
Of course, if you go with Reason, you get the benefit of all that virtual processing gear, a world-class console, and a kick-ass soft synth and ROMpler. Good luck, and I hope to welcome you soon to the Reason community!
