Im wanting to start recording some acoustic stuff, i get £10 a week (if it helps you see my budget) and im wanting to start recording some stuff in my bedroom and upload onto the computer. I'm new to recording so could anybody suggest a good cheap setup for under £250 if possible, cheers.

Get the program audacity for free from the internet, and then by a condenser mic. If you're starting out, I would get an MXL USB condenser (I have one), and they are great for recording vocals and acoustic guitars because they are very sensitive. It is also easy because you can just plug it right into a usb port. Good luck!

Tascam makes some cheap recording units. I have the eight track model. (don't know the exact name off hand) And that was about 280. Then just d/l a decent mixing/mastering programs for your computer.

*Sometimes I just record from my pedal output. I have an adapter from 1/4" to 1/8", then I plug an 1/8" cable into my computers recording port. Sounds great, but not as good as my Tascam's sound.

how about a multi tracker? wouldnt they be the best choice for home recording?

Ye I would prob suggest to get a basic mixing desk such as the Yamaha MG10 mixer which you should be able to pick up for around £60, it has 10 inputs, 10 tracks with 8 of them being doubled up and has xlr ports aswell. This would be good cos it also gives you room to grow cos you then may find out you want to record more than one track at a time or whatever. Then I advise you buy a phono to 2x mono jacks, and also buy a phono to 1/8 inch. Two mono jacks into stereo out or monitor out left and right and then the 1/8 jack into the back of your computer. Then you have money to spend on a condenser mic. If you need any info on condensers just say but its not too different aslong as they are condensers so they will also pick up your guitar sound
