  • School me on Home Recording

    I want to get some things "on tape", and I remember people saying they were using their Line6 POD's to do so. What would I need to record direct to the PC?

    Also, is there any way I can get a Boss DR5 to record as well?

    One of the cheaper (But still good) ways is something like a Toneport.

    Here is a video (Not mine) explaining the setup. You can see his other videos for how it sounds!

    I would say that would be one of the best ways to get a good recording, without spending a lot of money on some huge studio setup.

    I don't know on the drum machine, sorry.

        I use the Zoom H2 portable digital recorder for my recordings. It can record in several formats including MP3 and WAV files in stereo. Built-in front and rear mics make it very adaptable for solo or group recording and it can be connected to your pc via usb for storage on you computer. It's no bigger than a garage door opener.

        Here's a sample of how well it works: http://www.reverbnation.com/tuffythepug

          I second that. The Zoom H2 sounds amazing and is the best thing I've found to record my jam sessions/open mics. There's also a Zoom H4 that can do some multitrack stuff, but I don't have experience with that.

                Hey Jesse - I haven't actually run this program myself, although I recorded at a friend's house on it (he "turned the knobs" as it were). It's called Audacity and I believe it's a free download. It had a few glitches but overall it worked pretty well for us. You can check out some of the music we recorded on it here:

                We used a Pandora's Box for all guitar tones.

                To anyone else: I'm looking for some kind of drum program that can be run by an idiot. Because I [I]am[I] an idiot.

                  Apparently you need a degree in mechanical engineering to use the X3 live, this is gonna take a while...
