Hey dudes, (i know, another 'advice needed topic') but hey, just some simple pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated. Basically i'm someone looking to start recording my own songs (indie rocky quirky whatever) without the aid of other people; myself playing all instruments one at a time. No midi, just real instruments, real time. I guess basically what i need to know is whether my existing computer is up for the job, and if so, what kind of digital/analog converter would be the one for me. I've been looking at the digidesign m box which seems pretty awsome, good quality, two in's which is fine i think...and pro tools. I have a SMALL amount of experience with this program, but am kind of backng myself to nut it out.... Anyway, my computer reads like this...pentium 4/2.4 Ghz, 256 mg RAM, 40 gig hard drive, USB connection etc. If anyone can offer me any advice, or maybe in particular, persons who have recoreded multi layers one at a time successfully that would be great. Cheers!!
