I'm trying to digest the information concerning home recording but smoke is coming out of my head now... Here is the deal: I'm a total dummy like many. I only know I have a new HP Pavilion with some USB ports, something called SmartMedia and other stuff... I love the demo version of Orion Platinum... I'm looking at a future where I do all my stuff since in Puerto Rico very few people have interest beyond reggaeton, salsa, AOR, and ballads so I'm kinda alone. (I do have a band, but future scheduling conflicts threaten my plan) The idea of using Orion for drum and synth tracks and adding bass, guitars, and vocals (on one of them Tascams I guess) is very appealing... I'm thinking going New Order style... but I don't know (bleep) about home recording and I do not have $$$$$ like Trump (YOU ARE FIRED... oops sorry) So how do I focus on my search without having my brains explode? How do I build up my lab?
