Lemme first start off by telling you guys how I used to record, and then tell you what I want to be able to do...and hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.... I had been recording with a behringer eurorack mixer running into my M audio 2496 PCI...and I used a Line 6 POD for guitars and bass, which also went into the mixer then the PCI. I was using a program called N-Track Studio for all mixing. Although everything sounded decent doing it that way...I really want to be able to record drums to seperate tracks. All my drums were recorded to one track so I would have to try to mix them as perfect as possible before even hitting record. So i just got a new computer running Vista and I wanted to start again fresh with a new approach to recording... I just purchased Sonar 6 from musiciansfriend...and Im now looking at interfaces that will allow me to record drums and get everything to seperate tracks, snare on its on track, kick on its own track...etc..What is the easiest way to do this...I dont really understand all this line in line out stuff. From what Ive read i think I need something with at least 6 outputs, but even then i dont really understand how each piece of the drum kit gets sent to a different track...so anyways...what interfaces should i be looking at? how easy are they to set up and use? and whats the cheapest way to do this?
