    Hello, I am not a sound engineer, I play the guitar and sing in a band and we will soon record an album (as soon as I go back to my country), there we will record it with a sound engineer, but right now I want to record an acoustic demo to send to my bandmates what I've been writing, so that when I get back it will be much easier for us to finish the songs because they will be more used to the structure, harmonies etc. I own a Tascam DR-07 portable digital recorder and I already recorded the guitars with an acoustic guitar pickup connected to the recorder, but the problem is that the recorder doesn't work as an interface, so I have to first record and then mix the files in the computer, and I'm not sure how to record the vocal tracks so that they match with the guitar tracks, because the metronome is in the software but there's no metronome in the recorder. I thought of recording a bit of the guitar tracks before the voice to use as a reference and afterwards erase it, does somebody know a better way to do it? :confused:
