I'm looking at getting a setup to basically record anything I want through my computer. Figured I'd get suggestions on what is worth my money and what isn't before I go and waste money. I want something that records fairly decent, you can do "decent" production work with it, etc...I've done some searching but with all the variety figured I might be better going through here for recs first.
1) A program that can easily be recorded with. Ideally, something that just installs and then could say plug-play a mixer or something. The easier to use the better, I want something that is simple but has the options to become a decent song producer.
2) Something decent to record through. A mixer, something that I basically plug my guitar into after amp/PA that I can hook to the computer and then use said program to record. If I can avoid using mics for the guitar that would also be a plus, I'd rather plug into something and listen through headphones
That should basically be it I imagine. Essentially, I'd just like something I can get good quality recordings from, be able to edit the production a little, and be relatively easy to use. I'm also considering using this for a little drum recording in the future, so something that could handle the inputs for that as well would be incredible.
A fairly vague post, I know. But my TonePort which I used to record with and it's associated programs refuse to install on Vista and I figured I might as well spend my money wisely then just getting some cheap piece of crap that won't last through a GUI update...Thanks in advance for all suggestions. .
