I've always loved recording (Not really done to much of it though.) I don't have a band or any musical inclined friends so I don't need a huge mixing board and all the usual studio gear what i'm thinking about getting is that zoom mrs-4 and maybe that drum machine that goes with it and link that to a new 700 mhz ibook i'm thinking of getting. So the plan is to use the zoom to record with the drum machine and then transfer it over to the mac to edit in a suitable program like cubase or cakewalk (Let me know if you know of a better one.) Is this a bad idea or will it work quite well? Will I need a di with the zoom seen as it's designed for guitar and all? Would I be better with drum software over the drum machine? What cables will I need to sync the Midi clock in the multitraker and drum machine? Anybody got a better idea for a setup for the same sort of money? Let me know your thoughts.
