Hi.. Ive been recording vocals/guitar/keyboard and a bit of drums for almost 2 years now, but I use a soundcraft board which runs through the "Line in" audio on my computer. My issue is when I record multiple tracks at the same time they have to be PERFECT in equalization because they all record to the same track. I'm looking to buy a new preamp system or multi track recording hardware to overcome this issue. My class in school used the Presonus firepod which was perfect because it had 8 channels and was easy to use, but over the course of the year we broke a couple so they don't seem to reliable. I've also looked at the Phonic firefly 808. Don't really have a price range, just getting an idea of what is out there. Any help or suggestions is GREATLY appreciated. Nick.
