I’m a local musician. I live in Southwestern Virginia. I’ve always loved music and spend quite a bit of time doing it. I’ve recently joined a few old friends and have put together a band. It seems to be going well.. We’ve got approx. 60 -80 songs on our set lists, which we do well playing. Our problem is every club or honky tonk in our area wants a demo. We really don’t want to go to a real studio to record the demo. I’ve recently bought a digital 8 track recorder (fostex e08). I’m inexperienced in the technical part. I’ve recorded in other studios with much success. But, I cant seem to put together a go sounding demo from my home setup.. Here’s my equipment and how its set up. I’d appreciate any ideas.
First, which I think is a problem. we practice/record in my small music room. Volume could be a problem as everything is on top of each other.. I have a set of pearl drums, the lead amp is a fender Princeton chorus, our bass player plays thru a 100 watt fender bassman 100. My board is a pv 12 channel running into a pv 500 (250w per side) power amp that powers 2 peavey pr 15’s.
We have 2 singers that switch leads and the other 2 do backup vocals.. Now how would you go about this project?
Here's how I first did it. We set up room mics and recorded everyone on 1 track.. Then went back and did each track individually, drums , guitar and bass. Then, added the vocals. It turned out pretty good but getting it from my recorder to a computer to burn a cd has been a bear. Do I need an audio interface Or can I go into the back of my computer into the audio in and copy the songs onto my hard drive? I don’t feel I have any control over the eq!! Anyways I can ramble on this for a while so hopefully some nice experienced person can help me… I hope.. thanks..

use the s/pdif output to trasfer to audio cd directly in digital.

then you can transfer your cd on pc and eq as much as you like.
