Alright, I've heard a bunch of threads on "how do you do this" on PC recording, so I'm make a post telling you all about my experiences with PC recording. So here are some essentials for a good quality PC recording session. <b>A Decent PC</b> I record with a PIII 550, 17 GB of HD space. Space can be important when saving digital data. <b>A GOOD Sound Card</b> I recomend a Sound Blaster Audigy. You want this sound card or better. I think you can pick the Audigy up for like $75, but yeah a good sound card can make ALL the difference. <b>A Decent Powered Mixer</b> I'm pretty sure it's got to be powered. I run the speaker out (special cable) into the line in on the sound card then adjust the line in recording volume on the PC. <b>Good Quality Mics</b> Especially for amps and drums. I've noticed the SM57 works VERY well with a bass amp. Drums are a friggin pain to record, you gotta get bass drum mics, tom mics, snare mics, condenser mics, ect ect, let the drummer pay for all that. <b>Decent Software</b> Decent software is good, but GOOD software is pretty cool, it's always nice to have options. I use Steinberg Wavelab personally. All the noise eliminators and frequency changes and effects are cool. Alright, I think I covered everything needed to record on a PC. What I do is I plug all the mics into the mixer then adjust volumes and such and boom record. I like our recordings so far. Sure as hell beats studio fees . Tell me what ya guys think.
