I've wished in the past for a page on the TDPRI about home recording, which I've been pursuing for a little while now. Hopefully a lot of us will jump in and post questions, observations, links, etc. I started out with one of the Tascam Pocketstudio 5's. They had a lot of problems at first but seem to have those ironed out--fortunately they were correctable with software updates. But I never used the backing track function, and I felt really limited by just four tracks--and I haven't even gotten into vocals. Mainly I want to lay down guitar tracks, and I want to do and store a lot of different takes, difficult to do with four tracks. But I learned alot while using it. So now I have a Boss BR-1180, and am learning how to use it. I use a Boss 670 for drum and bass tracks, do some of the bass myself. Who else records at home?
