Hello, I need something to record with. I want to record clips and original tracks. I am not interested in a fancy or expensive recording set-up, just a simiple unit with maybe some drums/bass. I would use it for composing and practicing. Any suggestions? Thanks, David

How about one of those little hard-drive or flash-card based multi trackers? Zoom makes one, I think. Boss probably has a slew of them.

I purchased the mbox from digi, and have been suprisingly impressed by the box. Some recording i've done with it is posted here. My friend Chris Miller 's music. The best example is the song My Way With Words(3-5-05)...Of course the Mbox is out of the question if you NEED something you can use independently of a computer..... It runs about 450 to 550 retail, but im sure you could find one cheaper on Ebay. It's a great buy,great beginner's tool, excellent intro to the whole Pro Tools world. Good Luck!

ya man, thats cool, lots of companies make great 4 and 8 track digital recorders, try Tascam, Boss(like straticus said they have a whole bunch), Roland has the v-studio, and Korg has one that fits in your pocket for about 400 bucks. Ive worked with both the boss br-8 and also the roland 8 track v-studio, and both are great machines. The Boss BR-8 is great because of it's price, and i think they also make a four track version called the br-4, but im not sure, so you have alot of options. Try to get the best possible deal that you can foryour money, research alot and dont rush in to anything...i sound like my dad...im sorry. Later man.

On a related note, I'm getting a new laptop, and will probably get a Mac...

What should I be aiming for, configuration-wise, for recording on the Mac...?

The Fostex MR-8 looks like a pretty cool standalone box for
the $299 street price. I haven't tried one myself, but it seems
like a nice unit. And yeah, Boss and Tascam have their own
too.

The guy looking for Mac stuff... one of the most popular simple
Mac configs is to get the 828 Firewire box from MOTU.
