Do what I told you in your other thread. 8 track tape and 16 track mixer.

Nah man, the New 1604 VLZ3 is $850, but the VLZ Pro goes for $400 - $600 on eBay. It's the same product with slightly different preamps.

ProTools isn't worth it. Might as well just, err... 'borrow' it from a 'friend'.

Great plan, until you get to the cant use without accompanying hardware part.


I recommend the following -


If you computer supports firewire, pick up a used MOTU 896 or MOTU 896HD. Download Reaper as your DAW program.

Gives you 8 channels of simultaneaous ins, very good preamps for an audio interface, routing and monitoring options I doubt you'd ever need, and a good solid program to record it all into.

You'd still have around $400 left over to spend on mics or anything else you might need down the road.

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying here.

ProTools can only be used with Digidesign or select M-Audio hardware connected to the computer. I'm not much a fan of Digidesign or M-Audio hardware, so hardly see any reason to get ProTools.
