I quit actively gigging and recording years ago and have REALLY lost touch with the latest in recording technologies. Im hearing some great clips from several guys here and thought what better place to ask for help than here! What I need is advice and or recommendations on what equipment I need to get the best and simplest digital recordings possible. All I have now is an old Tascam 4 track recorder Ive had for years. I want to go digital now so I can do some editing on my computer. So help me out guys!! What do I need or which way should I go: Sound cards? Mics? Mic preamps? Software? Should I get a digital multitrack recorder!? Im loving the amps, guitars and cabs / speakers I have presently so I figure its time to quit blowing money on playing gear and focus on some serious recording gear and honing my chops so I can share with you guys in hopes someone will dig what Im doing these days. FWIW I currently own a fairly up to date desk top and a new laptop computer. Both have firewire capabilities. I dont know if this helps but thought I would mention it. Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions and help.
