About 15 years ago, I had a small Tascam 4-track recorder, a cheap drum machine, a bass guitar, and my 1961 SG. I made about 20 hours of finished recordings and had a blast. Fast forward to today, and, with a wife and three kids, I wouldn't mind getting into amatuer recording again -- both for sanity's sake and because some of the kids are getting into music. I currently possess a couple electrics, a modeling amp, (have a nice Clark tube amp on order), and an acoustic. No bass guitar. I'm interested in setting up a simple bedroom studio. And I mean bare bones. Nothing fancy. No moniters, just headphones. What are my options? I assume that, it I don't want to mic my amp, then I probably need some sort of digital signal processor with some effects. I really like the tweedy and voxy models I get out of the modeling amp. A touch of reverb is all I tend to use. I'd also like a signal processor that can permit me to lay down bass lines with my six-string and provide simple drum tracks. I don't sing (unless tipsy), but I wouldn't mind having the ability to add vocals. I also assume that I need some sort of mixing/recording device. I imagine that you can get some which have so much hard drive memory that tapes are a thing of the past. How about the ability to burn to a CD? And finally, what about doing all of this on the computer? How does that work, and what are the advantages and disadvantages? Thanks for any advice.
