I don't understand the need for multiple track recoding. Why does it have to be so complicated? Is it not possible to get a decent sounding recording one-track, no editing, no mixing?


It is possible, you'd need to position a condenser microphone in a room, play a bit, see how it sounds and reposition your mic till you're happy with the mix...

Multitracking allows for you to record each instrument seperately, although playing them at the same time, and then you can leave the music alone for a while, and come back and get a decent mix... and it means that you could do odd things like the digital bass remix or whatever!


Thanks Bournio. How can I tell whether any of my mics is a condenser?

Hi, after years of recording directly INTO my computer, I have grown weary of that method. Here's a link to another recording option:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoom_H2_Handy_Recorder

You can record live in your room, then transfer the recording to your computer via USB to edit the recording. It's simple and the device itself is sold for under $200.00 (US currency).

I used to use PowerTracks, Band-In-A-Box, and other inexpensive software applications. I could never afford the high-end stuff, and frankly, it's too complicated for me. I just want to focus on playing the music.

peace,
Stefan


The H2 looks good. The reviews Praise the quality of sound this thing can capture. The H4n, its big brother, looks better if u want the option of editing and the H4n has other goodies but the H2 is the cheapest simplest way to get quality sound on the net if the reviews are right.

Audacity is a free recording program that should work on your computer, regardless of OS (Windows/Linux/Mac OS X versions).

With the right cables, you should be able to get two track recording going just with the audio in on your computer, but since you want three tracks, you'll need some sort of PCI/USB2/FireWire400 device with at least two stereo inputs. You can probably find something used in your area/e-bay.

Steinberg Nuendo
Waves Mercury Bundle
PSP Audioware

It takes a pretty good Computer to run that stuff but, the difference in quality is amazing.

I enjoy my recorder, decent quality and gets the job done. You can bounce to stereo on the unit, or connect via USB to your pc to finish (probably not if your pc sucks). So for you, the MR8HD with the CD burner might be the best bet.
