im starting a studio and getting a presonus firestudio project.
it comes with cubase le 4.

i read these stats on le 4.


Audio Tracks

48


MIDI Tracks

64

unlimited


Instrument Tracks

8



when it says 8 instrument tracks, does that mean i can only have 8 different tracks that come from a mic?
for example, if i use 8 microphones micing up the drums and i record the drums, i will not be able to record guitar / bass / vocals on top of this? i would have to settle for 4-5 mics on the drums just to be able to record guitar and stuff,....?

please clear this up for me

I'm pretty sure it means it only supports the use of 8 different vst instruments simultaneously. Vst instruments are virtual, so this wouldn't put any limitations on the amount of mics you could use.
There is poetry in despair.

well if you are recording guitars, vocals, and drums all at the same time, then you cant have more than 8 tracks recording. you can record up to 48 tracks in cubase (which you wont ever) you can record 8 mics on the drums, then do guitars and vocals separate from the drums.
