Recording EQUIPTMENT? Specifically for a crappy old computer.
« on: January 04, 2007, 09:44:27 am »
well, Robert had that beautiful post on recording tips, but nothing (as far as I saw, its 2:30 am, I might of missed something) about what to use to record.

I was going to get a simple usb converter cable thing. But I remembered that my computer is so old it only has usb 1.1. I've been told 1.1 can't transfer near fast enough to get decent quality.
I have a mic input, but its no better than the usb.

So what would be the cheapest way I could get any recording done? My only current option is to mooch off my friend down the street who's sister (who is currently at college) has high quality guitar and mic recording, with an equally high quality computer.


I was going to get myself a new computer this year, but then I decided I want to get myself a snake for my birthday, and its highly unlikely that I get both a snake and a new computer.



So yeah, i can't think strait and don't really remember the original purpose of writing this, but if you have any answers to questions I can't remember asking. Please answer!

I bet they just sing into their pickups, that would work perfectly. Absolutely no way that wouldn't work. nope.

I'd reckon its a firewire or usb plug.
