So... I've been writing some shit, and I have some extra money. I want to buy a Tascam portastudio (one of the old 4 track ones that records onto standard cassettes, that I can get on ebay for cheap) but I'm not sure that's what I want, and I'm not sure what else I need.
First, I need to be able to record myself playing and singing simultaneously. I don't want to record the piano, then have to match the vocals to that.
Second, my piano is a Yamaha CLP220, so I think I could just use a midi cable to record. But, I don't know. And I don't have a midi cable.
Third, I'd need a microphone, and I'm poor. Any recommendations?
Fourth, I'm retarded. Help me, please, oh great minds of the shadowbox.
