i was thinking either http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fostex-MRHDCD-8-track-Recorder-with-CDR?sku=247120 or http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/Tascam-DP02CF-Digital-Portastudio-Recording-Studio?sku=241813.
anyone had any experience with these? Is the cd burner on the first good or should i use a computer program?

Out of those two I would get the Fostex. But I would try to get something with more inputs. The Tascam only has two and the Fostex has four. Try to find something with eight. Those two make good recorders though.

With the porta stud, since it has no built in cd burner, does it have a program that i just put it on the computer and burn it, or do i have to edit the tracks after its off of it? and the fostex says it has 8 tracks of recording, but i only count 6

The Fostex has 8 tracks 5,6 and 7,8 are paired you should be able to split them and it only has 4 inputs A,B,C,D which means you can record 4 things at once. Don't confuse tracks with inputs. If you want to record a band you should get at least 8 inputs.
Our drummer will sometimes use 8 to 10 by himself (prick) but 2 guitars 1 bass and a couple more for the drums (maybe 4 is ok) you can see how fast your inputs get used up.
Check around on E-bay for an inexpensive 8 input Tascam or Fostex.

They both have USB so you can put the songs on computer and do the mix downs there. Most people I know would record on the recorder and then use computer software to edit and mix the songs. Record dry with little or no FX and add them later during mixdown. I can almost gaurantee? it is going to take awhile to get the hang of it but you gotta start somewhere.
