Well I just finished making a short piece as a test last night for the BOSS BR-1200 CD I got for Christmas, and it's pretty cool, but quite badly done since it was started at 3 in the morning and God knows what time it was when I finished. Well anyway, here's a link to all the stuff I've uploaded, only 3 songs, it's not much but some of it is good. Like snotskie said, comments and suggestions are arpeggiated appreciated.
Well, the older two were recorded on a 4-track tape recorder I have (primitive) and it doesn't even connect to anything at all, so I havd to record the stuff with my mp3 player, putting it near the speakers, then transferring the WAV file I recorded onto my computer from the mp3 player.
The test one was recorded on my new BOSS BR-1200 CD, which has 12 tracks, way better recording quality, a drum and bass track creator/arranger, and when it's done and mastered it can be easily transferred to a computer via USB. But if you want to use something like that for recording, the ONLY way it's going to happen is if you either get loads of money one day, or just somehow convince your parents that music is your only interest, and you need a good recording system to record your music on in order to live. Which is what I did (because I hate college and they wouldn't let me take the music course I wanted to do). I don't even know how they afforded it, it's like £550, which could be around $1000.
