 Hello Group
 
 I have a beautiful Taylor 12-string guitar (the sound transports me
 when I play) and a gorgeous Martin D-18 custom guitar and I want to
 lay down some multilayered tracks here at home so I can make beautiful
 music with myself (smooch).
 
 Has anyone reading here at FFLife had experience in setting up their
 pc as a recording studio? I need to start really basic just so I can
 lay down a rhythm track or two to practice along with and then
 eventually add some lead lines. 
 
 I'd appreciate any advice I can get about doing this.

Kenny,

I havea  setup that I use for my Vedic Mytholoogy podcast. Personally,
I like using Sony Audio Studio for recording software.  It is readily
available from a variety of sources and not too expensive $69.

Then I suggest going to a place like MusiciansFriend.com and buy
yourself a good condenser mic ($70 for an MXL), stand $20, and a mixer
with a USB interface (Alesis for $114). and you are all set to go!

Let me know if you need any help.

 Ben

2005-11-12 Thread benjaminccollins
It also occurs to me that there very nice condenser mic that goes
right into your PC's USB port for about $79.  Then all you need is the
software.  There is some free audio editing software called Audacity
that you can get from SourceForge.com.  So you are in business for
less than $100!

You can get interference from USB ports if they are placed wrong, or 
so I have read.

 No need to get a Mac these days since there are plenty of good 
recording 
 apps for Windows.  There are two reasons musicians get Macs and 
that was 
 in the early days the bus was easier implement audio hardware on 
(though 
 I found Mac programming a pain in the butt) and many musicians are 
too 
 flaky to handle anything more complicated than a Mac. :)   Even the 
 defacto pro standard ProTools is available for Windows.
 
 I use Cakewalk's Sonar myself but mainly for MIDI and also have 
several 
 other multi-channel capable audio apps to use.   I also just 
updated 
 Nero to version 7 and the audio software in it does Dolby 5.1 and 
7.1 
 which is cool to play with.
 
 Ben has given some good recommendations for Windows programs.  
Audacity 
 is good but a little slow compared to some of the commercial 
packages.  
 Cool Edit which was an affordable editor was bought by Adobe which 
 turned it into a multi-channel package and priced much higher.
 
 Good luck with your recordings!
 

If you already have a PC, and don't want to spend money on getting a 
Mac, obviously a Mac isn't part of the answer.

However, Garageband and its big brothers (Logic Express and Logic 
Pro) are really kool music products, and Garageband comes bundled 
with every new Mac. The upgrade to the latest version of Garageband 
is part of the iLife suite for $79. That's the latest versions of  
iMovie HD, iDVD, iTune, iPhoto and Garageband.

They integrate quite well, also, which is why they're sold as a suite 
of upgrades.

BTW, Mac programming in MacOS X is very kool. John Carmack of id 
Software used the original version to create Doom. Tim Berners-Lee 
used it to create thefirst web-browser. A version of the Mac 
development software is bundled with every new Mac and the latest 
version is availableas a free download from Apple.

You can use it to develop Mac/X-WIndows GUI applications, or plain 
old UNIX CLI programs.
