me and my band are recording our demo but we cant get the drums recorded right with only one mic. I was wondering if theres any way that I could hook my peavey XR600G powered mixer to my computer so that I would be able to use 6 mic's for the drums?

Yeah use the main outs of the mixer and connect them to either the line in on your soundcard (the crappy way of doing it), or you could get a USB or firewire interface and plug the main outs into that (the good sounding way).
PM Me for any help you need with recording systems/tips

Well I don't have a lot of money to put towards an interface and it just needs to have a good enough sound quality for a demo. I was looking at the Behringer UCA202 USB interface http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Behringer-UCONTROL-UCA202-USBAudio-Interface?sku=702540 would this be any good for what I want?

ya that would work fine. BUT

make sure your taking a line out or a headphone out or something. NOT the outs where you would plug speakers in. thats dangerous and wrong.

well i dont know what you mean by main outs.

http://img3.musiciansfriend.com/dbase/pics/products/5/2/6/282526.jpg

on that pic, is that jack that says main out where you plug in speakers? if it is, thats no good. but im guessing the speaker outs are on the back. in which case, that main out is probably exactly what your looking for.

gimme a minute ill look into the mixer a bit more.

ya ok i found the pdf manual. a 1/4 inch cable to whatever inputs the behringer will work properly. you could use 6 mics, but remember youre mixing down to stereo so obviously youlll only end up with 2 tracks and only able to edit those 2 tracks. basically, just make sure you bass and snare are plenty loud enough and everything is mixed really well before you record.

If that fails, just stick a dynamic microphone on a boom stand so that the mic is in between the two toms above the bass and pointing towards the snare.

I recorded my drums that way (5-piece, ride, crash, hats) and it sounded like demo quality.
