Re: Recording Software?

...that is entirely possible - its just the stock sound card. and because its a laptop, its likely to remain that way!

oh well, good excuse to build a custom pc!

Re: Recording Software?

Hey I just saw this http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/porta...402568182?mt=8 in the itunes store. Doesn't look too bad and appears very simple. $2.99. Can't beat that

Re: Recording Software?

When your ready to step up from using shareware, (I used it for a year and a half) look into PreSonus Audiobox interface, and Pro Studio software package, the software package comes with more recording tools than any other package I have seen.
Guitar Rig, Toon Track, Ampeg, Kore, and a hugh list I cannot remember off the top of my head. almost every amp/head/effect combo on the planet is available, even stuff that you can not get any more.

just my little input!
Did you try asio4all ? http://www.asio4all.com/

Re: Recording Software?

Finally I found a cheap and great solution. I bought a used gaming keyboard. (A4Tech X7 G100). I assigned many functions to keyboard from Reaper action list. (record, stop, play, insert track, arm etc. etc.) And now I can use Reaper with full control from X7 G100.

I know I could do this with my pc keyboard. But this is more useful for me.

My gaming keyboard photo (added some stickers for record, play etc) :

That keyboard wouldn't know "hip" if its life depended on it!

Seriously though, why not stick 'I', 'H', and 'P' keys on it somewhere? I don't see a zero key either.

EDIT: damnit, I necroed this thread. I knew I would make that mistake sooner or later.

Re: Recording Software?

I use reaper and ableton, ableton has more options but reaper is just so easy to work with and free.

Re: Recording Software?

I got cubase with my RP355 and I have to say that it's a major pain in the ass if you get an idea and just want to get it down fast. Half the time I can't get it to recognize or play through the RP unit, so I gave up on it for that.

I installed Audacity the other day and was up and recording about 30 seconds after install. If you're first starting out recording and just want to get ideas down fast and easy it's really hard to beat Audacity for simplicity...

Edit: Just downloaded Reaper to try out and it is pretty intuitive and easy to use as well; more powerful and more features than Audacity. 10000000% easier to get up and going than with freaking Cubase... Cubase is getting uninstalled right now

Re: Recording Software?

I started using Ableton Live recently and love it. If you've never used it, I definitely recommend checking it out. The way you work in it is definitely different from anything else.

Re: Recording Software?

Reaper for the simple, quick stuff, SONAR PRODUCER X2 for everything else.

Re: Recording Software?

Hey, has anyone heard of Riffworks? That is the definition of simple.
It uses a Line 6 Guitarport as the asio device and POD Farm. '
Just tap on the strings for the tempo, click how many bars you want, and record. Even add the "instant drummer" feature if you want.

Yet.....I did just have a recent issue. I have been using it for over 6 years, and now it had an update last week, and it tells me I cant record with my current asio device because it has too much latency?? And pops up a window that I need to purchase a new Line 6 device!! WTF.

Mabye I can get that sorted out with tech support, since ive been using this thing weekly for years... arg.

Anyway the software is awsome for capturing an idea with minimum effort.

(update: got it working... their update changed the output port, switched over, working good again!)
