So I have a hankering to do some home recording over the summer. I have a drum kit, guitar amp etc set up in my basement and I’m looking to buy something goodish to make tracks on. I have just received a payment of 150 quid for some freelance writing so around that sort of area for a budget would be ideal.
I got this baby and love it
Came to say this, which although I don’t own, is high on my ever growing list of gear desires.
A lot of Deerhunter/Atlas Sound stuff is recorded into one of these and then mixed in a DAW.
I’m going to confess my ignorance here and say I don’t know what a DAW is… I am a total noob.
I’m not really looking to be spending a lot of time recording and editing stuff on a computer. The only decent laptop in the house is my work one and I wouldn’t be able to upload any non-work applications to it. Not really looking to spend any more time looking at a screen either, do too much of that at work.
Digital Audio Workstation, (Protools, Logic, Cubase and that ilk).
If you can stretch the extra cash, I think you could do much much worse than that Tascam mentioned upthread.
I fully respect the want to remove yourself from a screen, the exact reason why I want one myself.
Think there’s also a cheaper 6 track version of the tascam too
Scagden - This will do you fine
If you get stuck using Pro Tools yer man @Vulnerabilia can give you a few pointers
