Software-wise you can go by the so-called industry standard, which tends to be Pro Tools. But in my opinion an equal daw is Cubase.
I use Presonus audio interface, which has good warm-sounding mic preamps. There is also a software called Studio One by Presonus, which is another very good alternative for the ones mentioned before. Some say there is a specific Pro Tools sound and a specific Cubase sound, but I definitely disagree with that. Just go with whatever you find appealing, they all get the work done!
Audio interface-wise I'd go with Motu, RME (one of the best!) or Presonus. Maybe not so much with the Avid MBox stuff, cause it can have a slight digital nuance in the sound imho.
