7. The Recording Section

The recording section is, depending on the device, equipped with between 4 and 32 tracks. The data backup takes place - as already discussed - on FlashCards or hard disks. As with their semi-professional and professional brothers, compact beginner studios allow you to access virtual tracks in addition the main tracks. Created when each of the main tracks is subdivided, the number of virtual tracks creatable is model dependent, ranging from 8 to over 200. For a better understanding read the example below.

Imagine the following situation:

After finishing the base tracks of a song (e.g. bass, rhythm guitar, and voice) you decide to refine a specific song passage with a guitar solo. The whole thing will take up the last available track. So far so good. But, once you're done, something that happens is typical in any recording session: in the final assessment, you wonder if the guitar solo would be better with just one more run through. But you've used the last track to record what you already have! There would normally be no alternative: either keep it or delete it entirely. Not the case with hard disc recording systems! The virtual sub-tracks of the individual tracks offer the possibility to start further experiments without having to delete a previous track. You only have to start the unpleasant process of deciding which tracks to delete in the final editing process. Working with virtual tracks is an extremely creative process and supports a musician's passion for experimentation.

Simultaneous recording of multiple tracks:

To prevent disappointment after purchasing you should keep in mind what you'll be using the device for. Primarily you'll be considering how many tracks can be recorded at once. For home recording almost any device will do the job. Next are the 8 track multi trackers which can record two tracks simultaneously (and of course play 8 at once). So you can record an external drum computer or stereo keyboard and then work with the end product track by track, just like in a normal studio. But if you want to record a completely mic'd drum set or a full band you'll have to get creative to bring all signals to the front as just two tracks. Of course it's possible but you won't be able to edit the sounds of the instruments individually.

So if you want to record multiple instruments simultaneously you should choose a multi tracker capable of managing 8 or even 16 tracks at once. Then you'll be safe from the get go. Once again, it is important to pay attention to the product text and technical data on our website as well as the device manuals available on the respective manufacturers websites.
