What can I use to record myself singing and playing acoustic guitar
I'm not looking for top quality here .. basically I sometimes write songs and can't remember the tune the next day .. I'm a newbie too at it, which doesn't help. Free or cheap please
Cubase is the program I use, and you would need a mixer and a microphone. If the accoustic can be plugged in to the mixer, then you could skip the microphone for recording the guitar tracks.
I'm a musician myself and greatly support your desire to record yourself for later playback . . . I would say anything you can get your hands on, don't lose your material! I have been there and done that. Most cell phones have a record function, although playback will be poor in quality, but at least it is not lost. I wrote many songs recording on a boom box back in the day.
Once you get bored with that and need a better option for digital software or means to mix multi-tracks send me a message ... I can help send you in the right direction.
Thanks both .. I think for now, I'm looking low tech ,, it really is just a memory refresher as much as anything .. unfortunately my phone is very poor quality so not an option ... been looking on amazon and I reckon a £15 cassette recorder will do what I want for now .. though will look at cubase later definitely ..
Pick up a little Zoom Digital recorder. They're actually brilliant quality with fairly decent mics in them. Zoom H1 will be something like $100. Perfect for having a decent quality recorder where can just hit record and get going and transfer it to your computer.
There's actually a big range of them, and I couldn't vouch for any one in particular as I've not tried them all, but I've used the Tascam DR2 before and it's sounded excellent, excellent for recording a jam with other acoustic instruments.
