hey guys after admiring everyone on youtube i have decided its my turn to start recording

basicaly i want to be able to record my music in on a flashy effects pedal :L where i choose what effects etc i use, and then add the drum beats in on the computer

so the question is what is a good pedal/software to use?

im limited to 200 pounds :/

this might be a dum ass question lol but i am new and admire your work

also it has to be compatible with MAC

thanks guys

I'm selling my Alesis Multimix 8 USB 2, which comes bundles with Cubase 4 LE. The mixer/interface does have built in FX, but of course you can do all of that on the computer.

Works fine on my macbook pro, but the ASIO drivers dont like my wireless dongle so it does crash my pc if i have them both plugged in. Like I said though, fine on a Mac. Which is why I'd rather sell it to someone with a mac

It would probably be overkill for you though if you are working on your own and only recording yourself http://www.alesis.com/multimix8usb20 if you are interested.

I have it in the classifieds section for £200 ono, along with a novation remote 25 keyboard inc case for £100

thanks for the offer mate, will maybe talk later, is and of the line 6 range good?


No worries, it's almost certainly not really suited to you right now - I just wanted to point people from R&R over to the classifieds!

Personally i have no experience with the line 6 stuff - I would imagine that its good for guitars, but perhaps not that versatile when it comes to vocals and drums etc.

stealthpedal looks good.......

I use Guitar rig 3 for my guitars/amps which runs on my machine either standalone or as a plugin in Cubase (which is the bit that does the multitracking) though the latest thing seems to be using Impluse responses for simulating the cabinets. It certainly sounds better to my abused ears.

Though I can disable the cab sim in guitar rig and use kefir to load the IR's in Cubase, Peavy revalver III offer the option built in. I'm just playing with the demo version now and so far i like it.

Grab yourself a copy of computer music magazine, costs about 6 squids and it will probably have all you need (software wise) to get going and work out what would be best

It also has loads of beginner guides on the DVD in .pdf format which are handy when trying to negotiote all the jargon and acronyms that go along with all this stuff!

Do you have garageband on your mac???

+1 on grabbing a copy of computer music. i got the august 2009 issue in front of me right now and it comes with guitar rig 3 le, completely free (well you have to buy the magazine) the cd that comes along with it is worth the 16$ price tag (they up the price severly in the US) the cd comes with royalty free samples,tons of freeware, and some times free expensive software such as guitar rig 3. also the magazine is pretty good to, tho i get the vibe its more torwards the techno/electronica crowd, still tons of great advice. also if you have extra cash pick up the sound on sound magazine, its pretty cheap and its a huge thick magazine on all recording stuff. i recommend picking up both and getting a year subscription to at least computer music (your 100$ will be paid back tenfold with all those cd's)

It is a good mag, and of course sound on sound studio porn.

Future music seems to have gone downhill though, I have copies that are older than most UG'ers and seem more interesting than the latest editions,

woh i might get the magazine i will have a look, yes i do have garage band on my mac and i also have LOGIC PRO i mean, could i get a line 6 pod x3 or something and record into that? would that work?

also with stuff like guitar rig 3 can i move the recordings to other places like logic and thats the same with a drum machine, would i then be able to move it in to logic?
