Recording Music Using a Multitrack Reel-to-Reel Tape Recorder

The subject of our next webinar, on aspects of tape and reel-to-reel recorders, is recording using a multitrack tape recorder. From 4 to 24 tracks tape is back in the studio, so we at Reel Resilience thought we'd better talk about it! More information about the webinar, who we are at Reel Resilience and how to book, can be found here. Love to see you attend. https://www.eventbr…

iPad advice for multitrack recording

I am considering getting an iPad mostly for recording guitar.

My question, for those who multitrack on their iPads, What should I place more importance on...
The more powerful iPad Air (64gb) or the storage space of the regular iPad (128gb) ?
(Air/256gb and the Pros are out of my price range).

Will I just keep filling up the storage on a 64GB ?

Also, I read in another thread here that iPads are only good for a couple tracks worth of multitracking.. is this true?
I know a few of the iPad apps advertise many more tracks available than that.

Zoom F8 Multitrack Field Recorder

Zoom released this last year and want to know if anyone's made any recordings using it for music or video, and if so any thoughts on quality, functionability, pros and cons. Some of the reviews I've read are saying the pres are nearly if not "just as clean" as the Sound Devices 744T, and more than 4x less expensive than the SD.

On the Go MultiTrack Recorder for Android?

Anyone know of a good multitrack recorder for Android which you use? All I have is a basic idea recorder, single track, so I have to hum each part in a linear sequence. Makes it difficult to be creative when you listen to it that way so I'm looking for a good on the go four track or something so I can layer my ideas via humming/singing when I'm out and about.

Advice for multitrack recording from Live rig


Sorry, I am new here, but this seems like the correct forum to post this question.

I am currently doing live sound running a Yamaha 01v96v2. Attached to the mixing desk I have two Behringer AD3000 using ADAT.
In the past i've just recorded using 2 track from an aux or bus, but i am looking to do some proper multitrack recording and remixing after the act.

Multitrack Recording a Concert

Here's the deal, I want to record a live concert using multitrack recording. I need to know exactly what gear would be cheapest and best and how to set it up.

I have a Yamaha MG24 14FX and a PC with Pro Tools 8 on it.

I want to be able to go from the sound desk into whatever I need to and recorded through pro tools so I can do a post mix. At most, I'd only need 12 channels.

If someone can tell me exactly what gear I'd need and how to get it up then that would be great!
