I’m going to be picking up a Captor X for silent practice and I’d like to start composing and recording music. However, I am way behind the curve with regards to how to go about it - last time I recorded anything was on a Fostex 16 track recorder! Other than a PC with decent power and RAM, what is the minimum I need to start? I am looking to compose with virtual instruments via a midi keyboard for synth/orchestral stuff, guitars are likely to be through the captor vitual cab/IR route, but would like the option of reamping and recording vocals through a mic.
Due to finances, I’m having to start simple and build up the rig piece by piece, but didn’t want to make an error early on and have to replace hardware because of ignorance. With this in mind, my priority list is as follows:
Any guidance is welcome, I’m a noob!
