You couldn't be more wrong. A computer is far more suited to recording live 'real' music than anything else. An ther's nothing technical or mysterious about it, it can be exactly the same as recording to tape but with the added advantage of having an endless supply of effects, drums, backing and mixing, and at the end of the session you can put your music straight onto CD. But isn't it all robotic, rigid , automatic and well, computerised?
No. It's as freeform and creative as you are and can offer more production possibilities than you've ever thought of. But I like all my hardware gear
Then you can keep it. A computer will add to your musical arsenal not take anything away, so you can use your existing gear together with your computer
