Re: I want a simple recording rig
Which tone port are you referencing? I am going to guess you mean the ux1 or ux2? Although I found the ux2 was ok but over priced, I am very very happy with my UX8 and would hardly consider it to be cheaply made. But the UX8 tone port is over kill for what this particular person is interested in doing, I was just curious as to which model you were slamming.
Second on Reaper, the program is super easy to use, and free if you can be cold hearted and decline the prompt everytime you open the program. Doesn't have the ability to do pro mastering.. but it would get you by and the price is right!
[quote=musikron;1101585]Actually, Reaper is $60, but they allow you to break the user agreement and keep using it after the 30 day trial with no penalty.
MOTU is a brand or AI I have good experiences with and they are very affordable (relatively speaking). The Line 6 Tone Port is cheaply made, low spec, and I would not recommend anyone waste their money on it. Much better can be had for the same scratch.
You will need monitors.
