Re: Minimalist recording setup

hey, true the M-Audio isn't as serious as some other interfaces but it's alot better than others. such interfaces like the PreSonus Firepod are good but i didn't think of recommending it for a minimalist recording setup. the M-Audio is good for what i use it for as i am mostly computer music based. ...

Re: Recording Brass Bands

hey,

thanks for the tips

i'll look into picking up some of these mics you recommend. i'm more interested in purchasing mics than hiring so as to expand my mic collection a bit. quite frankly its dismal... :roll:

Re: free download rec progam ??

yes reaper is a good one....
