I've made lots of recordings with the camera of memory card type TOY eight track recorders. I'm proud of the performances but not the recording quality .
So, what would be perfect for me is something that works as simply as the toys I have just described but sounds decent. The idea for using an interface with a PC and all other good stuff that goes along with that way turns me off. I know I would just be spending all my time and energy on working with the gizmotron and would not have any juice left for the music. I know this sounds stupid but it is true.
I have gone so far as purchasing some of the newer models of that type of recorders I'm used to using and they simply do not sound better than the same thing they were making 10 years ago
. If it isn't possible to get a decent sounding recording without the extravagance a interface PC, cake walk, world war two what ever are just as soon not become involved. I do not mean to sound sarcastic. I just wanna have fun making decent sounding recordings. For me it is not fun to twiddle with the computer 99% of the time and play and sing 1% of the time when doing recording.
