    I'd like to record something, and I've never done that before, so I don't know anything about it.

    wat I would like to do:
    - be able to record multiple parts of the same song, and put them together afterwards (and if at all possible: play the ones I've recorded allready while recording other parts)
    - record solo's and combine them with 'play-along' CD tracks (and playing the CD while recording them)
    - be able to edit the separate parts after recording them. (adding echo effects or something)
    - be able to do that on a computer

    What kind of equipment / software would I need to get?
    I have a T-Bone cc75 microphone I use during performances:
    THE T.BONE CC75 - U.K. International Cyberstore
    would that work for recording something decent?
    I have no idea how to even connect the microphone to my computer.
    Note that I don't have a lot to spend (college is expensive...), so freeware software would be appreciated. I don't need crappy equipment, but cheap and good enough, is better than expensive and extremely good. I'll only be using the microphone and software ect. at home.

    Thanks

    Zoom H4n might be just the thing.

    I would not recomend the H4 for that kind of use! You would need a sound/audio card where you can plug in your mic, and a program(software) like Cubase! A midi keyboard is also recomended:-)

    I use a Shure SM58(live) and a Neuman D-01 mic, a Creative sound/audio card, and a cheap midi board! Cubase for editing and recording! Hypersonic for making cool sound with the midi board! And Addictive Drummer for beat making!


    I also use this for live shows! It's awesome..:-)

    that Boss rc50 thing is awsome, but really expensive, and much more than I need.
    that D-01 microphone costs about 3 times what I paid for my trumpet...

    I need some stuff that is NOT expensive. As in the cheapest way to record something that still sounds good. Any advice?

    I think he could do what he wants without the computer. The Zoom H4n does multi track recording, comes with Cubase, and has its own microphones.

    sounds good.
    all I need now is a version of that thing for half the price :-)
