i think a cd recorder. Just make sure you deffinately have good enough equipment to do everything you want to do. Good luck.

i have a computer multi tracker its not much good except for putting down ideas, its ok for hort term if you want very average recordings. They ca be tricky to understand.

well i already record on my familys computer, and everything is fine. the reason i want my own is because,
1.i record frequently and 5 other people use this computer.
2. i would like a space of my own, like a recording studio type thing, so i don't always have to bring my gear up and down the stairs (i play in the basement and teh comp is upstairs)
3.i wanna have a nicer program than audacity.
4. im constantly wanting to download different things for the computer , such as fruity loops and stuff like that
5.i like to have privacy, when i sing and write songs, cause i like that stuff to be personal

I've used both and i'd recommend getting a multi-track much easier. I find them much easier to use for both recording and mastering, especially when you're recording something like drums and using multiple mics.

^ i don't record drums, cause i don't have a band, i would just download fruity loops if i got my own comp though, and i don't need multiple mics, all i record is guitar and vocals, and when my friend comes over, bass.

I you aleady have a decent computer

Do computer recording!

More tracks,more effects,more options,its a whole lot easirer than hitting key combinations just to get a song saved.But if you do go multitrack,get a good one.

If you get a stand-alone multitracker like I use (Zoom MRS1608CD), there is a built in, fully customizable drum machine.

I have never gotten into PC recording, but it's an area that I should get into. I'm just more comfortable using a multitrack simply because that's what I've always done and what I'm used to.

For the stuff I do, all guitar instrumental, I don't need any of the PC stuff, though, other than regular multimedia stuff to compress and convert.

Some will swear by strict PC recording with Pro Tools. Some will swear by stand-alone multitracks. It's personal preference for the most part.
