What's your home recording setup?

Recommended Posts

I have a BOSS BR-600 and a BOSS BR-1600, well BR-600 is mine and my band 'The Primetime Blues Band owns the BR-1600.

 

I also have Reaper on my PC with a external Edirol UA-4FX USB Audio Capture Device.

You mean a big hard drive? Are you just going to record yourself & your brother, and maybe an entire band?

If you've never recorded, but can operate a cassette deck, than one of the BOSS BR recorders would be great for you. They are easy to learn to operate, you'll spend more time recording, than trying to figure out how to record.

 

The next question, is how much do you want to spend?

The BOSS BR recorders are quite nice. There are many types of 'computer' programs as well that will do what you want, though they can go from simple and easy to 'pain in the ***' and complicated. I have messed with Guitar Tracks, Ableton and Sony Acid. Myself, I can do the very basic with them but these programs are capable of doing some amazing things.

 

Download some of the demos and see what you might like.

I don't recommend PC based recording software until I know if a person is knowledgeable on computers first. I sometimes use Reaper ($50/home use) and a Edirol UA-4FX.

 

Reaper has loads of plugins, has a small memory footprint and is pretty easy to learn, if a person is familiar with recording terms and technique.

 

I have over 200 songs on Soundclick, where I recorded lead guitar to backing tracks from another forum. Almost all the tracks were recorded on my BR-600, and some using Reaper.

I have Cubase 4 and it's great. It handles both analog and MIDI inputs and comes with a number of preset sounds for your keyboard trigger (or you can program them in) as well as effects (delay, reverb, etc.). The learning process is steep but well worth it in the end.

I have a Digidesign 002R, an Octepre LE with ADAT card option to get to the other eight inputs of the 002, and a variety of outboard gear, plus a Tascam US2400 control surface, a pair of Mackie HR824 monitors (the newer models), a paid of KRK canary yellow Rockit 6 monitors (I think that's what they are called), and its run with a Mac Pro quad 2.66GHz machine attached to a 30" Apple Cinema display. I've also got about every software program known to man for use on the Mac, plus some Windows software I run on the dedicated Bootcamp drive on my machine. Its a disease. A dreadful, expensive disease.

I have an old TASCAM Pocketstudio 5, but I've moved on to recording with my PC. I use a Lexicon Lambda interface and Sony software -- just upgraded to ACID Pro 7 and Sound Forge 9 -- the learning curve is steep! I have a Line 6 PODxt and a bunch of stomp boxes and plug-ins. No mikes, so far all of my recording is direct.

I have a couple of AKG mics I run through a Behringer Xenyx 802 Mixer into a Boss Micro BR Digital Recorder. It's not fancy but for recording myself and (or) a couple of friends it works pretty well.

I have the Boss BR-1600

KRK Rokit monitors

2 MXL condenser mics

1 Octava condenser

 

This is a step up from the 4 track yamaha cassette I used to use. Funny at the time that 4 track was almost top of the line when I bought it.

I've got a Macbook Pro with Logic Studio and a Presonus Firepod. The outputs lead to a QSC RMX amp and a pair of Carvin 15" floor monitors. For mics I have a Shure SM58, an AKG Perception 200 and a pair of AKG D8000s.

Old - but still useful Roland VS 1680 with FX card. The COSM guitar effects are absolutely dire, but the reverb and mastering EQ/compression are excellent. 2 free PC based systems worth trying are Audacity and Krystal. I had niggles with Audacity, but I've heard some very good results from others using it - many free plug - ins also available.
