im interested in purchasing a 12 track, first question is, do i need a drum machine to record drums on it? do some 12 tracks (which ones) have drum machines on them? and also do i need monitors? thank you
To get drums, you either need a drum machine, some sort of sampler, or a set of real drums that you can mic up.

Yes, you need monitors. Don't try to mix on stereo speakers or headphones. You'll only be disappointed.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?
