I love audacity. Fixed sync problems in the choruses of "Little Computing Machine" and "Daddy's World", added reverb and tweaked levels on "Somplace in the Net". On "Net" there was one spot where the guitar was a little too hot, which of course meant it was too low everyplace else.

Hey, remind me again, how hotshot of a laptop would I have to have to do live stereo recordings? No compression encoding on the fly, just slap the bits on the drive and shrink'em later. I'm seriously considering recording some of [ profile] tfabris and [ profile] vixyish's shows... that and maybe some [ profile] ohiblather-type stuff, too.... though with all that hardwood I'm not sure where I would want to take sound...

Anything in hte past 5 years. Try to have at least 512mb ram and 30gig of disc space.. I have used p4 based machines with windows and an intel MacBook Pro.

both work. If you are at Conterpoint, track me down and I can show you the software/tools I am using.

I will be trying to capture their concert here. (I know I am getting Dave Weingart's concert.)

So, what, gigglehertz or better?

Alas, no Counterpoint for me, I am in mid-move... but I'm definitely interested in [ profile] filkerdave's concert...

Worst machine I have used for recording was a p4-2.4gig laptop with 30gig HD. (Produced one CD via that borrowed laptop. Switched to MacBook Pro in March 2006.)

I would recommend at least a P4 machine (although you can likely use a high p3), if windows based. If Mac based, definately a powerbook for the LINE IN option. (iBooks don't have that feature, but MacBooks do.)

Audacity (which Mdlbear mentions in a later message) is what I use to record on the road and I would use anything it says is recommended.

With the MacBook Pro (my current laptop), I was able to burn CD-Rs (or DVD-R in a few cases) of the concerts right after the concerts and handed them to the performers. (Raw recordings).

Adobe Audition (which is my Windows based editing software) requires at least a p3/500 (newer version says P3 or P4 machine.

Their concert was good and I am listening to it now.
