I get lots of questions from site members wanting to know what my “home recording studio” setup is for recording these weekly jam tracks, so I’ve put together 2 videos to walk you through the process. The first video video is a quick walk-through of the hardware that I use, and the second video is a tutorial on software.
I record everything on my 3 year old Apple MacBook Pro (the best investment I ever made), using Apple Logic X (multi-track recording software). I have Komplete Audio 6 audio interface that I use for connecting a keyboard to my laptop. With the keyboard I record all piano, organ, and bass parts. Other than that I use an iRig which allows me to connect my electric guitar to my laptop via USB, all guitar and amp effects are simulated through Apple Logic X (which I’ll show on the video). And really that’s my entire “studio”. It’s inexpensive, super easy to use, and 100% portable.
Here’s the first video, which is a brief walk-through of the hardware that is involved.

And here’s the second video which gives you a fairly thorough overview of the Apple Logic X software that I use for multi-track recording. It’s easier to see this one if you click on the little “Full Screen” icon in the bottom right corner.
