Midi Control

What do I need for a basic home recording studio?

I have a computer a few nice guitars and amps and a bass. I don't have a drum kit. I'd like to record the guitar, bass and vocal parts and then add the drum loops digitally if that's possible. If someone could tell me what I need to do this I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

If you are planning on using drum loops - you would do well to record those first and add the others later to obtain synchrony.

You have a few options - You could get an all in one recording studio like the Roland VS series- this allows you to record audio tracks -has built in effects - and synchronises under MIDI control.
Might be a tad expensive though.

If you are going down the PC route - be aware that operating systems after Win98 suffer from "latency" - delays in both the audio and MIDI channels which can make recording impossible. It does though allow you to see what you are doing on screen and allows you to add drum loops - if you use software like Cakewalk SONAR.

You could invest in a drum machine - rather than use loops - and possibly use a multitrack tape machine - which these days is a tad cheaper than other options. You will also need a mixer of some description - perhaps 8-12 tracks.
