I'm looking to set up a studio in my garage to have some local bands (as well as my own band) come by to record. I have some connections to artists that I think are really good, and I want to give them an opportunity to be heard. So, this is what I need help with. I have no experience recording, and I need to know what sort of equipment I should buy for what I'm interested in doing. Should I just get a multi-track digital recorder like the Akai DPS24MKII, or is there a better solution? I'm willing to pay in between three and four thousand dollars. If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it.
