Hi all, new to the forums here. Ummm...anyway... I am a total noob when it comes to recording. Well, actually I've never recorded at all. But I have had alot of ideas recently for an album and want to start recording a simple raw version of it. I don't have alot of money and am thinking of just getting a 4 track recorder. I want to be able to record some bass, guitar, drums, vocal and piano. Eventually I would like to add some "noise" or electronic sounds as well. Can anyone recommend a good 4-track to get started on? Would a 4-track be a good way to go for a newcomer? Also, can anyone recommend any literature that will help me learn what I need to know while mixing/recording an album? Please, any info is greatly appreciated! Thx.
