The way we record music today is drastically different than the way things were done 20 years ago. For bands to record demos, they once needed to invest in a 4-track or 8-track tape machine.

In fact, top notch brands such as Presonus, Tascam, Akai, Focusrite and many others are all dedicated to providing immaculately crafted studio gear for both industry veterans and amateurs alike.
