Fnord the newb at it again: I hit the stickys and they are all 10 years old. Not only am I new to bass but I'm not a computer savvy youngster, either. I've a MacBook Pro and a passive Jbass type going though Sansamp BDDI; my only amp is an old Peavey Basic 112. I also have a Line 6 Tone Port ux1 (given to me without authorization codes to update it apparently-- will try to rectify). I'd like to record into Mac cheap/freely: bass, vocals and guitar; a drum machine would be a good bonus. Any advice is loved, and don't forget the good karma! thanks guys, fnord!
