    Hi I know that you can use a multitrack to record onto a pc. Using the PC as a multitrack. However I am not quite sure how to di it? Any help would be much appreciated

    Hi,

    Maybe this is what you're referring to.

    You first have to have a sound card and a seqencer program. For example, I have the Digi001 interface (sound card) and Digital Performer as my sequencer software. There are choices in both areas. I can't help you with sound cards for the pc (I'm on a Mac) but your software choices include Cubase, Pro Tools, and others like Sound Forge I believe. There are others here that could help you futher with those things.

    The software basically allows you to set up a track for each instrument. So you might have the kick on a track, snare of a track, etc. In multi-record mode, you can record more than one sound to a track and record multiple tracks at once. This is all MIDI. Then you can record the MIDI files to audio tracks and ultimately bounce the files to disk and make an mp3.

    You will need a certain processor speed and memory to run the software and with audio files.

    Does this answer your basic "how is it done" question?

    Cheers,
    Sioux
