my band's just a duo. But we're not going for the computer technology recording studio lark.

My drummer says he's going to have 6/7 mics, and i'll be recording with 1 or 2 on my amp. What mixer and track recorder can you lot suggest for us to use? On quite a low budget.

TIP : Buy all the mics at the same time and ask if you can get a discount ...

tascam makes some quality mixers that arent that expensive, audio technica makes usable mics that aren't too bad either
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!

agreed^

I would suggest something firewire so that all the tracks are recorded individually and can be edited individually.

I would prolly go with something that has at least 8 inputs. Presonus is nice from what I hear, but I would shop around and do some research on your own to be sure.

Good luck,

with an interface, each mic is recorded to its own channel in the computer, so you can do a proper mix and edit. with a mixer, you'd be recording just the stereo output and wouldn't be able to, say, add some eq and compression to the kick drum and a seperate eq to the snare, etc...

a good interface will have good quality pre-amps and converters, and will be able to supply phantom-power to any condenser mics you have.

But he said he didn't want to record to a computer....


Why is that ?
