My son and I are turning our garage into a recording studio and will eventually get some nice recording gear. But for now we are on a bit of a tight budget and looking for something to record our music with. I have played in garage and basement bands for a long time and have recorded some awful demos, so sound quality isn't THAT important to me. I like to get a raw 'live' sound anyways, opposed to studio quality. I think 'ghetto' recordings capture my sound a lot better, which most people will probably find odd, but one of our bands is hardcore/punk so good quality recordings don't matter much. We will be using guitar, bass, drums and vocals for this band. The other band will have the same instruments as well as keyboards and synthesizer, and possibly other instruments, with a lot of different layers of guitars and vocals, so it will be a bit harder to record.

Anyways, just looking for some suggestions on cheap recording equipment. Maybe an old-school 4-track cassette recorder?

Thanks in advance for any help.
