Starting over advice - studio set-up

Postby spaceburglar » Wed Jan 15, 2020 11:24 am

Hi team, I'm planning to resume home-recording and would love your perspective. I've always been a bit of a lazy producer, and badically used Fruity Loops to sequence samples that I recorded on SoundForge i.e. guitar etc i.e didnt even use tracks.
I want to set up a new studio and would love yr recommendations on software and hardware with minimal learning curves, for Window: a recording and production program that allows for sequencing and track-based production that is really basic (more basic than FL or Ableton?); software for recording separately from the production software; a vocal VST with great presets for making vocals sound great and integrated. I basically plan to program bass, record my guitar, sample drums, record vocals. I want like an 8 or 16 track recorder that I can also do sequencing with .... thoughts?

Any modern DAW will do what you want without even breaking sweat.

Do you have an audio interface? If not, then you will need one - and that may come with a DAW (most often a cut-down version) that may be all you need.
