I've just got into home recording and as I have a MAC I'm starting off with Garageband. I have learnt that you can do an awful lot with it and so far the results have been quite good - and I'm an ameteur.

I'm using an Audient AD14 audio interface to plug my guitar into, it will also take microphones too. I can recommend Ez Keys for keyboards. With this setup you can go quite far methinks ...

The only thing that I'm not happy with is getting bass lines in: I'll end up by getting a cheap Squier Jazz Bass so I can record directly.

When you've gone as far as you can with GarageBand, move up to Logic Pro. I did all the music for the last Celtic Legacy album using that programme and it's brilliant. A steep learning curve granted but put the time in and the results are well worth the effort.

For example...

Re: Home recording


Has anyone used a Boss Micro BR? I've seen one second-hand for a good price and am wondering whether to get it.

Re:


I have one, rarely used these days - two things were really good: to carry it along for example on holidays (I even took it along to business trips to play in hotel rooms with headphones) and to record ideas on the fly.
To do anything more complex I found it to be a bit convoluted - you know, when you have to cram everything on a small display and few buttons, and everything has about a dozen different functions, depending on how you use [sign in to see URL] just don't like things like that, so I used it only as above an upgraded to the R24 for home practice and now I'm gradually trying to learn how to properly record/mix/master.

It's small and portable, but [sign in to see URL] USB interface into a laptop loaded with the DAW of your choice is the superior solution. It's very tedious to edit stuff on a small screen and it's not much you can do without menu diving. They are cheap though so it doesn't hurt trying them.
Personally I think these dedicated small recorders are obsolete. There are much better options, which are easier to use and way more powerful. The only use I find for them is if you need a sketchpad for recording riffs and ideas when you travel. But even for a situation like that it's better with an iRig or something similar into a smartphone.
