Hey everyone!
I've recently recorded a tutorial for the fantastic new song from James Arthur called Say you won't let go.
Here's the link!

I've wanted to try Cubasis on the iPad, but it's $50. I can't bring myself to start with $50 on an app (although some I've upgraded so much I know I've spent more). I prefer to start cheap and spend more if I like what I'm hearing/experiencing :)

How old is your laptop James? You could run Reaper on it and do more as Joom and Hinfrance have suggested than you could on an iPad. For when you want to make a seriously professional recording. I'm very much like you though. I like to create on the run :)

Oh, I see we're using VigLink now (because I didn't add links) :)

My laptop is probably around 8 years old I think so pretty ancient! Lol! Might think about trying it out on the iPad first and then if I hit barriers in my recording demands I may look to get a new laptop!

Thanks for all your input guys! Lol! I PC?! I used to have one but never used it so just stuck with a laptop. Soon as I discovered the iPad i very rarely touch my laptop except for basic word processing. I nearly got a custom tower build specifically for recording music but love the idea that I can take my iPad and iRig around with me & record at any time or anywhere.
I've got a brain full of song ideas & riffs that if I don't record some soon my brain will explode. I even resort to using an old single deck tape recorder to document my ideas! Now that's what I call old skool!

Well I have no tower PC and a very old laptop so that's out of the question. All my recording will be done on iPad so need something that I can access on here! Thanks for all the advice mate!

Lol! I feel like I'm learning music theory all over again! There are so many things to take in. I want to create good sounding material on my own at home without having to get loads of other instruments plugged in too. I'm going to be recording instrumental ideas & need something that I can add drum & bass tracks myself!

AmpliTube on iOS is where you get the drum loops addons. I know they just released a second drum style pack and that is $18.99 (AUD prices) which includes Jazz, Reggae, Latin, Rock, Pop, Metal Blues and Funky packs. I assume the first pack of similar styles cost me the same. It really depends on what you want to do and where you want to do it.

I've spent probably about $100 or so over the years on AmpliTube for iOS (I've been using it since 2011 at least). I have almost every add-on the app contains. I am a big fan of their tone. I can record very decent sounding songs using just this app. It's not a complete package, but it's pretty damn close. Connect it to a DAW like Meteor using Audiobus and the sky is the limit.

For PC or Mac though, you'll need a DAW like Reaper and the VST version of AmpliTube. PC/Mac is more versatile and you should be able to produce more complete and professional recordings. Or you can combine the two.

Check out Evangelos Koudonas on Bandcamp. He records all of his guitar in iOS and then mixes it all (using GarageBand for drums I believe) on the Mac. There's more to it than that, but he really shows what is achievable. Plus he's a great musician and person :)

Excuse my ignorance, if I was to use amplitude to record my guitar parts and use the drum loop facility to insert my drum patterns, what would Meteor enable me to do? Meteor is another recording app right? So why use both together?

My brain aches!

I do love the sound of acoustic guitars no matter what the quality. I think even the old beaten up ones sound rich & full. Mine was a gift and is a Crafter FX550 it's a beautiful electro acoustic although I tend to play it unplugged more often.

Hey mate! Checked out the website & it's really great! You need to edit your post though as you have a w in there which shouldn't be there! Lol!
It's everyone so check it out!

Thanks so much for all your help my friend. I'm a complete novice at home recording and have always concentrated so much on my playing and live performance that when it comes to recording I have always been in a band and gone to a recording studio!
I will be sure to check it out!
I will undoubtably be coming to you for further help! :-)

Cheers mate for that!
So I will need a decent laptop or Mac to really utilise it fully?
What DAW do you use?
How much is the drum loop add on?

Right...I think I'm sold on amplitube as it seems to offer everything I need.
Has anyone purchased the drumloop add on? If so is it good & how much is it?
Thanks guys!
