Default home recording

meh band is saving for a mic, cables and such. but i have a question. but where can i get something to transfer a mic to computer? there's an adapter that will make LXR to a 1/4" output, but our compy only has a 1/8" inch input. im also afraid a 1/8" would kill the sound

Default USB Interface

Wow im not the only one who is still learning about recording i started my intreset in recording/pc music/dj about 1 yr ago and now i know about 5x as much as i did then. what you need is:

a.) a USB interface for your computer, you can get one at a full ranged music store(meaning they od all kinds of music)

b.)software for your computer so that you can put it all together, you can use your mouse adn keyboard, it works everything w/o problems, but you can also buy a MIDI controller, which is anywhere from $85-$500 depending on how complex it is, that basically lets you use actual knobs/mixing equp. to do mixing on ur pc. otherwise you click and drag the virtual knobs where you want them, basically the controller is for ease of production.

c.) once you get those, just hook up either your mixer/soundboard that u use for the band(if u use one) or get a mic mixer and plug the different mics into separate channels on that and then plug mic mixer into the usb interface.

i know it sounds confusing and complicated @ 1st, just get a magazine on recording or pc music and just read some of the articles, then you should realize it's not that difficult....just expensive, but when u have that set up, ur possibilities are virtually endless, you can burn you own cd/album for your band, then you're ready to send off to record co. when the time is right. Good luck!!!

Usually bands wind up being much better off with multi-track recorders then using computers. Mostly because it allows for a much simpler interface

Also, you're probably going to need a mixingboard for the band eventually, might as well get a good multitrack with multiple ins. It will double as the mixingboard, and allow you to capture those really good riffs during a jam session.

something like a Tascam 2488MKII as it also has a built in CD-burner so when you're ready to release a demo it's all there.

As this thread is two years old I think it's safe to assume he's figured it out

OtisAudio just goes around looking for an excuse to spam that website.

Time for banning.
