FL Studio is wav arrangement, although the new studio editions allow for VST input too.
Reason is instruments, and not wavs, or arrangement.
Adobe Audition is just a wave editor, it's the new Cool Edit, an uber-advanced version of SndRec32 if you will.
FL Studio will probably be the best option, you can't just "add" things to a wav file though.
i have no training with any software of this type. i used to just use and old fostex 4 track. i went out and bought a digital 4 track and am now trying to get a grip on it. this is all new ground to me.
the software end is much harder than i thought. maybe i ought to just go buy a keyboard...
it's a cover band that wants to play originals. we formed last year and our first show is coming up in may at a place in salem, nh. we have a girl singer so we play a lot of girl band covers. fushia marmalade is our name. we work an original into each of our 3 sets and plan to add a lot more. i just record solo to satisfy the craving for originality.
thanks for uploading the guides.
tell me about your band?
south shore? i just got into a band from there called Wheat. good stuff.
Sorry it's taken a bit to get back, had some issues here.
First, here are those guides I was talking about. Warning 150MB download.
As for my band, It's called Holesaw (maybe soon to be Soulsaw). Harder rock with a sometimes funky mellow side. Mostly originals. In the process of recording a demo now, we have our own smaller studio. We haven't been playing out that much, but hope to more in the near future. The weirdest thing is that I'm 27, the guitarists are 34 and 35 and teh bass player is a whopping 15!!!
For recording your band live, sonar is definitly the way to go, I used 2.0 XL for a couple years...loved it, just got "3 producer", haven't quite got used to it yet, but it seems to function the same wit a few cool new options. Fruityloops will really do you absolutely no good for live recording. It's really just a very limited synth/sequencer. but u can make some neato sounds with the drum synth. Acid is a great prog. also might wanna try sound forge.
oh btw, try using the "console" veiw in sonar at first, it pretty much looks like a standard analog multi-tracking unit.It might help you get used to it.oh, and yeah, and like dreamliner said, stick with it, after you get past the...uh, overwhelming-ness(*?) of recording software, you'll dig it.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
