Hey everyone, I am new to the whole recording thing but would like to get started. What I want to do is record my electric guitar parts using some kind of software...and then be able to make songs with it...you know, by using programs to mix and/or add drum parts and everything. I've seen that program EZ drummer and it seemed cool. So, here is what I have, and I was hoping you guys could tell me what I need to get started. Basically I have a typical rack rig that I was hoping to mic. That didn't take long...lol. So, how do I go from playing my guitar through my rack rig and cab...to getting it onto my computer?? What items do I need such as equipment, to transfer the sound from my speaker(cabinet) to the computer? Also, what software should I be using to record, or mix..I don't know I'm confused. And also, will most software allow me to mix drum beats with the guitar parts that I record and create?? I am looking to make music!! Thanks for your time.
