Right, so I've got songs I'm working on. I want to record the things.
Now how I did this in the past was with some fairly straightforward, not at all great application, the name of which I forget, on my computer (I think it came free with a magazine, so you can imagine how gash it would be). So I ran the guitar in, recorded ****, ran the mic in, recorded ****, maybe mucked about with ****ty programmable drums if the song might need it, and then had a uneducated bash at mixing. And that was it.
Obviously there are better methods to all of this, even for someone with absolutely no skill whatsoever at mixing and general good recording practice. And that's what I hope KR
can point me to.
Software? Hardware? Basically anything reasonably inexpensive is what I'm interested in. I'm not looking to make a masterpiece here so amazing quality isn't a huge concern.
