I want a simple way to record my practice and don't want or need the complexity of a digital DAW, or at least I don't think that I do. I have been tempted just to get a basic cassette recorder but cassettes were never a quality medium and are now hard to find. I have looked at portastudios but don't know what I am looking at. At least twice now at the local GC they have said that to record an amp via mike requires the amp to be LOUD as in 8 or 9 on the volume, and at home this is simply not possible. I am not looking for production quality here. I have a Deluxe Reverb RI. I currently have a Tascam handheld recorder DR22 if I remember but hate the small buttons and display. Any help would be appreciated.
