It's got to the point where I would like to record my practise at home. I have tried using my iPhone memo feature bus it's rubbish. Considered buying a mic adapter for the iPhone but may change phone shortly.

Anyone have any suggestions don't want to spend a fortune but want to hear my progress or lack of back

Many thanks

    Neil, you will find some helpful discusson in the Home Recording Forum.

    What budget do you have in mind?

    Would you prefer to use your iPhone (with something like iRig and GarageBand) or your computer?

    How simple or complex are we talking? Single mono track recording or multi-track?

    Just for you to listen to or for uploading to SoundCloud (or similar)?

    Looking to spend no more than 100 pound if that's possible. Would prefer just a personal recorder and just to record and listen back

    Hope that makes sense

    There are a number of recorders like the Zoom H1 and HN2, Tascam DR07mk2 and DR08, and more that might suit you. Good quality, small and portable, usually with an SD card which can be read by your computer if you later decide to want to use your computer for recording, mixing or uploading.

    I have a Zoom H1 which I use a lot and whilst it is quite plasticy (Is there such a word) it does the job very well.
    In fact I have used it straight from my mixer and via audacity or adobe audition have produced cd's.

    Buy one of these.
    Comes with free software and works great on your computer or laptop.

    Many Thanks
