live recording vs multitracking for acoutic guitar and vocal?

Hi, I'm a singer/songwriter recording my first demo at college and I'm getting some conflicting advice. I'm only recording acoustic guitar and vocal and wondered how best to do this, live with no headphone mix, to a click track and add drums later or should I still overdub? any advice welcome and much needed, cheers, TC

Recomendations for 64 bit Windows Multitracking software

Hi all;

My worst fear of a computer based recording system came true (wanted a standalone but the price was too high) and for almost a year I have been struggling with my old system. Just bought a new computer and wanted to go with Win 7 64 bit. Are there suggestions for a 64 bit software, it would be nice to have mastering add on but not necessary. I was looking at Sonar 8.5 but willing to look at others. Suggestions please, of course since this is a hobby the price is a concern.


MUlti MUlti Multi Multitracking an Orchestra!!

Well I just got a call from a guy who wanted to rent 15 HD24 machinces to track a full orchestra. every person gets a mic. Is this a common thing, it cant be. I could'nt believe it! I thought he was joking at first. I dont think Michael Jackson or the smashing pumpkins even had this many tracks. Anyway has anybody ever done this? and what in the world was that like?

Multitracking question

Hello everyone, I'm new to the forums, and somewhat new to recording, i recently bought a multitrack recorder with 2 inputs.

I was wondering if it would be a bad idea to try and record a stereo track of an entire band, and then go back and re-record each instrument individualy. I have an 8 channel mini mixer i can sub mix the stereo track in.

Multitracking Software for Delta66/OmniStudio

Hi everyone,

Long story short,
I have a Delta 66 PCI card w/OmniStudio IO box.
I used to run this on a Win98 machine with Sonar 2.0.

The hardware is now on a newer desktop with WinXP.
And so I'm thinking of upgrading the multitracking software.
Any recommendations?

I also have a Mbox with Pro-tools LE.
Will the Pro-tools LE disc I got with the Mbox work with the Delta 66 card?

I'm really not doing anything special..just recording audio (not midi) at around 18 tracks at the most.

Newbie needs Multitracking advice!

I'm currently in a rock band(4pc, I'm the drummer), which wants to record. I have recorded with othe projects in the past, but this time it looks like I'm gonna be the "engineer" and I'm pretty excited about that. I have a lot of interest in recording and I'm anxious to learn. However, I'm a little short on gear and don't know exactly what to get to maximize my budget. I have a set of Shure drum mics on the way and I'm in the market for a board and device to multitrack on my computer. My question at the moment is. would the equipment in the corresponding links be a practical setup.
