Egad.. I've done the 'one-man-band' recording thing and it's not a problem (guitar, bass, keyboard, octapad drums). But now I'm trying to do a quick recording on the cheap with 3 other band members. We tried a tascam UL-122 and it seems to work fine; except I couldn't figure out how to record more than one track at a time! I thought these usb2 devices would at least allow 2 signals to be processed on seperate tracks.. but I couldn't find a way that worked in CubaseLE. THe guitar player who owns it says he's never tried recording more than 1 track at atime.. so I'm not sure if it is even supported. So that's one problem. The other is the order of recording. I've done multi-track recordings in pro studios and thought I would follow the same stategy: - record the drum track first with bass, keys, guitars playing along (but all wearing headphones so it doesn't bleed into the drum mics) - once the best drum take is down, use the full band recording as a guide track. If necessary retrack the bass, rythmn guitar, keys - additional guitar solos are punched in etc. - vocals are done over the now 'solid' bedtracks - cd is mixed/mastered and shipped to the adoring fans on a flatbed truck (okay got carried away,...where was I?) So.. trying to do this in my basement, one track at a time, is no picnic! Also.. the performance suffers when 'the band' plays in such a detached segmented process.. SO my question is; - is it possible for this to work? - are there any better solutions? - Is the order of laying down tracks any different than in a studio?
