Right now my band is using my laptop and Magix studio to record our music... but that program has some serious problems that I don't like...

I would like to get a Fostex MR-8HD, I've heard other fostex recordings online and they sound pretty good, and I need something with better sound than I'm getting with the magix. I'll need at least 8 tracks. I would like something that has bass, mid, and treble controls. Possibly some effects (delay and reverb for vocals), track bouncing, a hard drive, and (the MR8HD has) 4 simultanious inputs (I need at least 2).

What is your take on Fostex's stuff? And is there any other options that you think I should concider?

You talki0ng analog ins (mics) or digital ins (straight 1/4" plugs)?

Your options are aplenty. Search google, and you'll get sites like ZZSounds, Musician's Friend. When you find one you like, lemme know, I know a decent amount about buying the right interface.

right now I'm micing the guitar and bass amps. I have each amp in a seperate room of my house, the computer is in my living room, that way each insturment is on a different channel.

exactly what problems are you getting with Magix? i've been using Music Studio 2005 Deluxe and it's been pretty flawless for what i've wanted from it (if i have had problems, i cant think of any off the top of my head, which is saying something). but, i won't doubt that its a relatively cheap program, so i wouldn't turn you away from getting the Fostex.

Well, I have a problem with saving and burning. If I take several takes at a song even after I delete the bad takes it still records them on the save and burns them on cd. But when I pull up the file it doesn't show them.

Plus I want something a little better quality that I can record several tracks at once. I want to burn a cd that we can sell at shows and give to venues looking to book us in the future or even record companies. (we are looking for a lead singer and new drummer so I can give it to people looking to tryout)
