I'm a hard rock type of guy and have been recording through cubase. However I'm interested in getting into recording with my band in analog. I've always loved the sound of rock n roll done through analog as opposed to newer digital sounding stuff.

Slash's new album was done in Analog and sounds fab to me.

The one concern I have is that if I record in tape how can I transfer it over to CD? So I can have stuff to send people as demos. Obviously CD's are easier to hand out in todays age then Cassette Tapes. But I want to get the analog sound on my recordings. I find my guitar sound decent, but dull on all of my recordings.

well you'd have the stereo mix out of the mixer into a CD recorder or burner.
Just like you used to mix to half track master ..... now you'd mix to CD

If you record to tape, you can pull right off the repro heads and mix digitally... It's just a medium...

I never figured it'd be so HARD to find a place to find good analog recorders. Ebay is kind of dry...Is there any sites that sell these used or anything?

Dunno if you're looking for a 2-track... Have one that's going on the block soon. MCI JH110C 1/4"--1/2" - Around 30 hours on a complete A.M.P. refurb...
