you will still need a computer, the fast track is your means of getting the sound into your computer, it basically translates your sound into something you can use with reaper.
Reaper is the software that you use to manipulate the sound once it's in.
Reaper= the mixer, tape recorder and effects-racks you have in an ordinary studio.

I don't know if volume is an issue for you, but if you're planning to mic up your amp, you need to be aware that you'll have to play quite loudly. Though recording the amp with a mic is widely considered to produce the best sound, it is by no means the only option nowadays. There are various hardware and software alternatives that allow you to play at more reasonable volumes.

sure you can, but you will want to upgrade at a later point i think. But for rough demos it's more than fine.
5-6 years ago my band used one of the early boss' recorders for demos. Drums are a bit crappy, but easy to program.

Yes, I have already bought the BR-600, and I like it pretty well. I don't have a clue on how to use programs like Reaper, unfortunately. And I'm fine with being stuck with the drums i would record with an electric set. I just figured it might be a little better sound quality than recording a acoustic set through the built in mics.

Oh well. Anyway download reaper. It is very easy to use.
If you have an electric drum kit, get an interface with midi i/o and you are in complete control of sound
