reasonable home recording [please help]
hello fellow indians,
i have gotten to a point where cheap computer recordings or once in a while good recordings on a friend's mixers are not gonna cut it. i just need my own gear, but unfortunately i have no idea how to start or any decent information on home recording. i do know that a few of my friends have decent mixing boards which produce pretty decent recordings if done right and i think that kind of quality would be pretty straight for what i'm trying to do. i'm not tryin to get studio quality or like cd material but a real great way of multi-tracking and getting a solid, honest sound of what my songs or improvs sound like. i probably have around a 400-500 budget but will go lower or higher depending on the relative opportunity-cost. i'm not looking for state of the art nor am i looking for cheap dog****. if you fellow brother experts of recording and technology could help me out, i would really appreciate it. just all the info and help you guys have. and where to buy stuff, mics, all that stuff.
if there is a gap between the finite (us) and the infinite, music at least makes one believe not only that there is an infinite, but that he can reach it -- for he can feel it. fire, bliss, and conviction are the plants arising from seeds of music. music is a beautiful, beautiful thing.
