I was actually just talking to a friend in LA who does his own recordings about this. (He's in a "rock" band) He was saying how tedious pro-tools was for making adjustments when routing in multiple tracks, and how he loves Reaper now...
Haven't messed around with live recording myself. Seems like it would be really fun. Props though, live recording is like, the hardest form of music...much easier sequencing everything out in a piano roll, that's for sure.
Thanks, man. Yeah, I mean, live recording is pretty much all I've ever known - for better or worse. I'm under the impression, however, that if I'm using a bunch of different instruments/machines and synths, multitracking may make the track sound better/fuller, so perhaps it's worth learning down the road if I continue to make tracks using more than just a drum machine and 303/x0xb0x.
I'm feelin' the bass, but not so sure about the kick, personally. I would try maybe using a 909-esque-sounding kick, if possible, and see how it compares. Or perhaps a similar kick they use in these recent ebm/new wave productions - but that's just me.
