Hi, so I'm thinking of recording a 4 song EP. I need to record guitars, bass, drums and some effects I can take care of with my pc. I've recorded a few demos before but the quality isnt good enough, I've gotten better with my pc but I'm not sure I've got the equipment or DAW fit for the task. I've been using Audition but the program is not really geared towards recording music. I have tried paying for cheap studios to record but the result are not good enough either. So I need to know if my 7 year old laptop is good enough to invest in a soundcard (I'm thinking the presonus) and try to record the drums home. I've gotten some old versions of most DAWs out there to try out too. Here's my specs Windows XP HP Pavillion DV8000t (2006) Intel T2600 (2.6GHZ) Processor 2GB RAM Memory I've also got the EMU 0202 external sound card and a pair of small M-Audio Monitors. So is it worth investing on a soundcard to record the drums with several mics or should I rather invest in a new laptop? Thanks!
