  • looking to record bass parts and some demos at home what do i need?

    ive got a normal family pc, it dell and i cant tell you much more than that!?

    im looking to be able to start recording small parts, and demos of songs as ive started to write a lot more and its a pain using my hand held sony recorder as it just sounds awful!

    im not taking studio quality but just something that i can lay down a few tracks say like 4 parts in a recording?

    i know ill need some software, but what else do i need?

              What is the opinion about the Presonus Firepod interfaces?

              I think they come with Cubase for editing software.

                I use a couple. They're pretty cool guys. eh have good preamps, and don't afraid of anything. Might be a bit more than the OP's looking to spend though.

                One of these would do the trick

                          I've been recording jam tracks lately and here's how I've gone about doing it.

                          1) I connect my bass and/or guitar amps directly into the Line In of my sound card using this adaptor:



                          2) I've been using the stable version of Audacity. I tried the beta, but there was too much latency. I'm back to using Reaper at the moment although I'm nearing the end of the 30 day trial period. There are some features that Reaper has that I happen to like over Audacity.....mostly the ability to set volume levels of each track on the fly.

                          3) I've been setting up the initial framework (arrangement) of the jam track in Band In A Box first and then pulling off the drum track only.

                          Here's a sample (using Audacity) of SRV's version of Kenny Burrell's Chitlins Con Carne so you can get a an idea as to how it sounds:

                          Drums and Bass:

                          Drums, Bass, with some rhythm guitar added:

                              Thanks Andy. No upgrades on the sound card. It's a Creative PCI card that's been in my PC for about 4 years now. It's nothing fancy.
