I'm totally new to recording. Well actually, no not really but I didnt even know about a standalone multi track recorder until recently. Anyway, I want something I can use to record our band demos, it doesnt have to be you know-the best sound but close to cd would rock. But um, i'm kind of lost in the multi track recorder field, ive searched and found some nice ones i guess but like I said i'm lost. I'd like to have one with an internal cd burner or at least one i can hook up an external to. What all else would I need other than the recorder and the mics? I have a computer at home but its a "community" computer that my bro and roomates use so i really cant just snatch it up and start using it to record. Ugh, sorry i'm so vague but I cant find any good info on them. I searched here and thats like finding a needle in a hay stack cuz the word mixer or recorder is in like every thread. Would it be better to just get a mixer or some kind and record straight to the computer? I could of swore that there was a link something on this website that would direct me to where I wanted to go but I cant seem to find it. ANY help would be appriciated. Thanks, Shane I also cant find any websites with more than 10 recorders on it. Musiciansfriend only has a few plus the sets they sell.
