need help figuring out a simple music recording system
I have no idea where to post this on the internet so heck, I frequent bike forums so I will try it here.
I play the native american style flute and anasazi flute. Right now, I have a Roland micro cube amp with delay and reverb, and a cheap mike. I can fill a small room with half decent sound. :) What I want to do is record myself so I can have a rhythm track, play one part on one flute and another part on another flute, inotherwords, play with myself. I would like to be able to record at least four tracks. I want to be able to save the recording and use the recording for practice as well as for back up when performing. I also would like to be able to record and play loops on the fly, when performing.
What would be a simple way to do this? Cost isn't an issue, ease of use is my primary concern. I search the internet and get info on mixers, on looper pedals and on computer mixing software and I am totally lost. I never have done any recording so I get lost in terminology. I also found no site which simply explains one's options for home recording.
