Behringer's innovative Xenyx mixers provide the home recordist and club musician with pristine sound quality and cutting-edge features for very little outlay. The new Xenyx Mic Preamp approaches the sound quality, transparency, headroom, and even the dynamic range of boutique-style, standalone mic preamps. Behringer's neo-classic "British EQ" brings back the warmth and musicality of those '60s and '70s mega-console desks that made music history.

The Behringer FCA202 F-Control FireWire Audio Interface allows you to connect synths, mixers, and more with its 2 - 1/4" inputs and outputs. You get 96kHz sampling frequency thanks to high-resolution 24-bit A/D and D/A converters. Work on your compositions anywhere with volume-controlled headphones. Its small dimensions, and durable metal construction makes it a great road recording rig. Reliable Windows XP and Mac OS drivers give you low latencies. Additional features include 2 super-fast 6-pin FireWire connectors, a security port for Kensington locks, and power via FireWire or the included AC adapter. Comes with the Behringer edition of Abelton Live Lite 4-the coolest sequencing software for mobile music production-plus Kristal and Audacity.

MXL 990
The MXL 990 Condenser Microphone with Shockmount has a silky, sweet high end while retaining tight, solid low and midrange reproduction. The 3/4" gold-sputtered diaphragm creates a professional sound suited for digital and analog recording.

Fostex PMO.4 Studio monitors
Fostex employs the latest cone material technology to obtain extremely pure music reproduction with the PM 0.4 powered monitors. Biamplification provides 18W to the 4" LF drivers and 18W to the extremely responsive 5/8" soft-dome tweeters. The 4" cones are made of Kevlar fibers for high rigidity and optimum damping, as well as incredible durability. Newly designed dampers around the tweeters eliminate interference for clearer high-frequency response. The compact cabinets are specially designed to eliminate unwanted resonance and incorporate a long bass port for deep and accurate low-frequency response.

2 LiveWire 1/4" RCA Dual Patch cables
Mono 1/4" male to RCA male dual cable with metal headshells. For serious-minded musicians, these cables have the strength and durability to withstand more than everyday use. Their sturdy construction enhances signal and performance. Flexible design eliminates kinks and twists for a tangle-free performance whether you're in the studio or on the stage. Their superior wiring allows your signal to be quiet, eliminating frustrating hums, buzzing, and crackles.

If you record the guitar, then another guitar, then bass, then drums or what-have-you, you can edit them, but if you plug them all in, no, you can not edit each one, as this way of doing things, its a separate mixer and a separate interface. With the higher end interfaces, you can take each input on them and assign it to a channel, so you can basically record drums and have the cymbal mic, the snare mic, every mic, go to it's own channel.
