All right, I am going to be setting up my music studio so I can record guitar, both electric and acoustic, piano, both MIDI and regular piano maybe, and vocals. I want to have capabilities to record drums but won’t need enough inputs to record all at once, just enough inputs to handle the mics for recording drums. I need help in deciding which way to go with recording. I have a pretty nice computer, · AMD Athlon XP 2800+ · ASUS A7N8X Deluxe Motherboard · 512MB Corsair PC3200 Memory (Would add about a Gig and a half if I decided to use computer for recording) · 80GB Hard drive (Would get more) · 24x10x40x CD Burner I was set on recording with a digital multitrack recorder until I heard about all the possibilities with a computer. I have Adobe Audition 1.5 on my computer but I had to record by plugging directly into the mic port on my computer. What I was thinking was having a digital multitrack recorder with capabilities of transferring to my computer to edit from there. I plan on getting a Studio Projects B1 Microphone. I was thinking of using my computer, if it’s fast enough, I don’t even know, but I would want the physical feel of using a board to set levels and volumes. I looked at the Tascam FW1884 FireWire Controller Audio/MIDI Interface at Guitar Center as well as the Digidesigns, which were pretty expensive. I just need help in deciding whether I should just stick with only a Digital Multitrack Recorder, use my computer only, or how I would be able to use my computer along with a physical control center. Any help would be greatly appreciated and if needed I can elaborate on what I want to do. Thank you in advance, Alex.
