: I have owned a QS8 since last December, using it for live performance in solo piano, dance band and fusion big band settings, and with notation software. Thanks to those of you who gave me comments earlier on amps, pedals and cases. I recently made a demo tape of solo jazz piano music, run directly into a tape deck. The sound was great, actually sounding like a grand piano in the studio. This led to a solo piano CD project in which we are considering running the QS8 directly into a 4 track tape, and then having a producer mix and master it into a CD. This got me thinking about what hardware and software I would need to record digitally at home, perhaps through my computer, a Compaq Pentium 133 MMX running Windows 98. I would appreciate any comments you have. Thanks.
You should give Powertracks Pro 5.0 a try.It is really amazing for the money.It is a sequencer and audio recording device which will use any full duplex sound card to record and playback.
It depends on your computer but it has the capabilty to record 48 tracks of audio data.And the amazing part is that it is only $29.00.Search for P.G.Music on the web and they have a good explanation on there site.They also make Band in a Box if you have heard of it?
Add this program and a decent sound card and a mixer and a few mics and you will get good results cheaply.
