I have a small amount of recording equipment that I use to record my band and myself. It's all centered around a Tascam DP-008 Pocketstudio, which I run my bass and guitars direct into. I have two Behringer C-2 condenser mics that I use to record drums and vocals. As you can see, it is a very minimalist setup, but I'm only 14 so my budget is tight. I want to know what the next investment for my home studio should be. What I really want to work on is improving sound quality. I want the same sound that comes out of my amps to go into my recordings, because now the bass always comes out dull in recordings, and the guitar (I run it through my amp and use a line out) sounds like overdistorted crap. I hear about all these things like DI boxes (which I am not very familiar with) that will improve studio sound, but I am also considering a computer interface, since I have Mixcraft software that has gone unused. So the real question is: should I buy things to improve the sound quality when running into the 8-track, or should I shift my focus onto using the computer more often?
