Are any of you recording your stuff on the pc? What program or software do you recommend? My son is using a Digitech RP 250 effects pedal which has a USB port that will allow him to record to the home computer. He would like to start recording some of his stuff. Any ideas?
Thanks!

I now have a couple of pieces of gear that I am stumbling through learning how to use.

Lexicon Omega for a hardware interface, comes with Cubase LE, which is a software application that is really cool once you figure it out. It is also sort of a memory hog for an older PC.



I also have a super easy-to-use Edirol R-09 hand-held field recorder. It is also USB accessible and records WAV or mp3 in various bit rates for quality vs quantity on an insertable SD memory card.



And while I agree with Lefty about Zoom H-4's ease of use as well, here is shot comparing the size that makes the edirol nice for stealth recording at live shows.

I have an H4 too, it's fabulous - I use it for Paranormal investigations as well as music.

As for computer, sequencing - Cubase
Audio - Cool Edit Pro (older version of Adobe Audition)

Protools, Peak LE, Deck II., Soundsoap,

all mac stuff.

and I have a Protools 003 rack.

I also have a Digitech GNX4 with USB, but I don't record with that as it has buggy MIDI software.

Has anyone had experience w/ the Line 6 TonePort KB37?
I was looking into this a while back but never persued it (still working w/ the old & trusty Fostex MR-8)


I like the idea of incorporating the keyboard for various implications and it comes w/ Gearbox Software for recording...seems like a decent deal for less than $200?

Just curious if anyone has ever used it.

Here's how I do it with Audacity. Just a quick overview.

(I'm in a hurry today)

I use two amps. One is connected to my laptop. from the laptops headphone jack to the guitar input on one amp.
The other amp is for my guitar of course. Now I can play with myself.

To dub tracks. (Mix two or more tracks) make these changes in Audacity.

Audacity (upper left hand corner) > Preferences > make sure check box for these
are checked.
"Mono"
"Play other tracks while recording new one"
and
"Software play through play new tracks while recording it "

click OK

I use my laptops internal Mic to record. You can choose the way you want to record
by clicking "Audacity" (top left corner) > preferences > Audio I/O tab > recording > Devices.

In the upper right hand corner of Audacity you'll see an arrow pointing down.
Click the arrow, and click "Monitor input."


click the record button, or have someone else click the record button. and record your first track. Click stop when finished.

To lay your second track

hit the record button again, a new box will pop up under the first one and begin recording while the first track is playing.

When finished, click "stop"

Click "Play" both tracks will now play.

You can edit the separate tracks. Or add more tracks.

To save all your tracks to one track, click "Edit" > "select all" > "export selected as. . ." either mp3 or wave. Your choice.

Audacity will mix it down to one track.

I use a Mac, it might be different on a PC.
corrections are welcome.

Gotta go.
Have fun.
