Above all - you're 15 - your enthusiasm and ability to "a." hear properly and "b." remember what you did yesterday is more important than gear - make loads and loads and loads and loads and loads and loads of music - learn, gain experience. This will stand you in better stead than chasing gear.

However, I have also heard that "all-in-one" channel strips (ones with EQ, compressors, and more inside of one strip) are not the best option, and I want the best bang for my buck.

Any recommendations for a $500 budget?
Dear Mr. @ Fishyhooks - what did you end up getting - if anything? If you still haven't decided - for Rap and some Dub/HipHop/RB your Presonus microphone press are clean enough - if it were me (and I wasn't using the gear in a live situation) I would buy a really good microphone like a Shure SM7b - and then get a kick butt plugins channel
strip like the Waves Scheps Omni Channel or maybe the Brainworx bx_console Focusrite SC.

You can accomplish what you are setting out to do - and if you happen to have more than one voice in your room you can keep using the plugin on each channel.

I'd look for a used Focusrite Green Voicebox Mk2
