I'm trying to start up a home studio to record some of my stuff, but I dont have much experience nor do I know where to start. I had a friend that used a 4 track to record and then dumped the data on a computer and worked on it from there. Would you recomend this method? What computer software should I look into? I dont need to make tons of techno beats, so some of the software just seems like overkill and or not geared towards my purposes of audio recording.
