Hi!

Throwing out the old analog 8-track for good!
So what hard disc recording system (for PC) would you recommend?
Must be able to record 8 tracks simultaniously.

Thanks!

...I guess that many will start now to just recommend you to go for a Mac.
I'd suggest to really compare. All that glitters is not gold.

First you need a good audio-interface that provides enough inputs for simultaneously recording of eight tracks. And then you can choose from various sequencer and audio recording softwares.
A lot of recording interfaces come along with light versions of "big" softwares anyway, such as Ableton Live, Steinberg Cubase, Cakewalk Sonar, Magix Samplitude, Sony Acid Pro etc.

All of them they certainly just do their job. It is basicly just a question of what's your personal style of working is all about.

So, I really recommend to try some of them out. Maybe you can try them on a computer of a buddy who already uses a certain version or you can try to figure it out how to deal with it with those demo versions they are offering. There are even free sequencers/recording softwares to be found out there in the internet...

And, hey, of course you can also buy a macintosh... Wink

Certainly a good device. But what's so bad about by using a computer (in addition to that)?

Funny that there are apparently a lot of "electronic musicians" acting like acoustic players who don't want to bothered by too much electronic gear...

I want to usr as much NO computer. Smile
a big bright screen with all possibilities is throwing away all ambience and atmosphere in the studio.

I use Magix Samplitude cheap, easy & very good (has possibilty to use multi track)

With soundcard Soundblaster Audigy without asio so no multi track, but that is how I like it.

record what you play without the possibility to correct it later.

problem with those new multitrackers is, they have only a few jack inputs. it says 16 channels and only 2 in`s?

I would like a physically 32 channels inputs and firewire or usb 3.
