I use Apogee Jam in place of Focusire in that list.

Similar price range, but I think the focusire gives you more options.

The Apogee Jam has worked as an interface between mic and ipad for me without any issues for about 2 years now.

Auria is a mind blower of an app! A full on studio at your finger tips.

You'd be wanting to get one the interfaces with more inputs and outputs so you could record all of you playing at same time, but on to seperate tracks.

Auria has a list of interfaces that work with their app.

well that depends if you want to record a real band - drumkit, bass, guitar, guitar-2/keys, vox or whatever as 'the band backing', and then do overdubs on top for more layers

or

if you want to record demo songs using software backing to create the drumtrack etc and adding guitars and vocals & bv's etc over the top, recording each item one after the other in mono or stereo

which is it?

the problem for taking longer is just recording techniques. now, with the advent of digital systems, there are 100,000 choices for everything. there is no limitations. in the old days there was only so much you could get onto tape, or edit, now it's as much as you want. i think it's much more tedious now and the Beatles had they started now, even at the fastest pace would be lucky to finish an album every two years and tour the world in between.

With the exception of the Basement Tapes, which werent really a recording session as such, the entire first two decades of Bob Dylan's career saw him spend no more than 90 days of that time in recording studios.

The best used time in studio ever spent.

Wasn't SW recorded during only 14 days?

Not quite. From January 29 to March 22 they recorded demos, first just Mick and Keith, then all of them, at Blue Wave Studios, Barbados (some breaks between the sessions though).

Then from March 31 to May 2, the proper recordings at Air Studios in Montserrat.

And then from May 15 to June 29, mixing sessions at Olympic Sound studios in London (first time since GOATS HEAD SOUP!).

Including: Masters Musicians of Jajouka session at Palace of Ben Abbou, Tangier, June 16-17.

Still, by Stones' standards, pretty quick job...grinning smiley
