OBM Tech: Home recording/ computer question (10) RE: Tech: Home recording/ computer question 23 Dec 02

If your Tascam has a coaxial output - presumably SPDIF on a single RCA phono plug - then all you need is a sound card for the PC that has SPDIF sockets. There are loads available and are not expensive, and would enable you to play stuff from the Tascam right into the PC in stereo. If you were to use something like Cool Edit or Sound Forge XP you'd not spend much on the software either. Effectively you could mix multiple versions of a piece straight onto the PC then edit the good bits together. There are several ways of getting .wav files onto audio CDs - I use Easy CD Creator.

You don't need to spend fortunes to get good results. Good luck.
