After hearing that John Frusciante recordered " Niandra Lades and Usually a t shirt " on a 4 tracker , i feel inspired to do some recordings too. I don't really like the idea of plugging into the computer , i want something i can sit around with in the night , and a recorder seems to be the best. Now , should i get a tape http://www.tascam.com/Products/414mkII.html or a digital recorder. http://www.tascam.com/Products/dp01.html i am not sure what are the pros and cons of each . other suggestions are welcomed 1) something simple 2)something i can lug around to different places in my country 3)dont need any effects , only one i need is reverb actually 4)affordable 5)all i need at most is a 5 track.
