i use tascam recording equipment, though im having i hard time getting it running.
i try installing using the disk it comes with, and it installs "cubasis" but besides that it wont allow the hardware to work because it cant find the drivers, even though there on the disk. i also have a yamaha mixer but i cant figure out how to hook it up working just yet.

Logic, Apogee ONE, Shure SM57 and an M-Audio Condenser Mic, M-Audio MIDI Keyboard.

Also, might want to try the Recording forum.

Guitar -> Amp -> SM57 -> M-Audio unit -> Garageband.

Or at least until recently. My amp's been in storage while I rennovate the recording space, so lately I've been running the guitar straight into the M-Audio box and using amp sims, which work better than you'd think.

Use my guitars/keyboards, etc, obviously

Use various mics - SM58 and some unnamed but absolutely amazing compression mic mainly

Use a Boss BR600 and a Boss MicroBR to record. This is because a few years ago I used to get pretty serious shocks from using direct line recording equipment, so I use this to save the tracks then import them to the computer

Use Audacity to mix

Use CDEX to convert to MP3

Use iTunes to IDTag everything

And that's my entire process

Instrument > Digitech RP90 Effects Processor > ACID Studio 9


or


Multiple instruments > Lexicon Alpha Interface > ACID Studio 9


or, on extreme occasions:


Laptop microphone > ACID Studio 9


Not insanely complicated/professional, but it gets shit done.


EDIT: For drums, if I can't get my friend who's a drummer to do it, it's:

BOSS SP-505 Drum Machine > ACID Studio 9

It actually can sound pretty realistic.

If you're into recording then I definitely recommend looking into a Mac for your next computer unless you're a big gamer; Garageband is awesome. As far as a PC substitute goes, I used to use a copy of ACID Studio, and I'd say the two are fairly similar.

Mixcraft is basically the same thing, but a bit less organized. The demo is free, and works just the same as the real thing for 15 days, and you can easily find a serial number to unlock it.

I stick the mic that comes with Rockband in front of my amp or guitar, then mess with the recordings in Audacity. It actually sounds fairly decent.
