I suppose that's an ok way of saying it. Right now I'm using an old Yamaha DSP Factory sound card w/ its 4 channel expansion. I am wanting to upgrade and am looking for a good system that allows at least 8 channels in. I am wanting relatively simple though. Also looking newer software. Currently using MxTrax which I love but it is manufactured for the dsp factory. If your unfamiliar, you create your own mixer that actually looks like a physical board, sliders and all! Any recommendations?
