I'm about to buy some recording gear and I have several options. 1. Used Fostex X-28H - Basically an old 4 track tape recorder - about 150 2. Tascam DP 01 FX - this one would be new at about 450 3. Save some cash for a used mac (my pc is total crap, that ain't any option) and Mackie Spike I figure if I go with the 4 track, I'll have money left for nice mics, a compressor and reverb, but I'd still need something to mix down to... probably minidisc, that wouldn't be much of a problem. I could record 4 tracks at once, which would be nice for drums and bounce them together. If I go with the daw, I'd save on effects and could probably get a better sound than with tape. But I could only record 2 channels at a time. Does that work well with drums? I'd probably need another mixer for drums, wouldn't I? Spike would probably be the most flexible and best sounding solution, but also the most expensive. And it would also have the limitation of 2 tracks at a time. What about buying the 4 track and spike later, so I could record drums with 4 tracks and get them on my mac seperately? Basically... what would you do?
