Hi all, Let me explain my situation a little then ask a few questions I have sorta floating around in my head. I'm a drummer, have been for more than half my life. I grew up playing heavy metal and because of this I have a rough heavy sound. I can keep a beat no problems. I play in a blues rock band with a few mates. The lead guitarist has an amazing ability to ramble on in a fresh bluesy rhythm. The bass guitarist can hold a groove. We jamb regularly but only in an improvised way. One of us starts a groove and the others join in, some 15-30 minutes later we have a break for beer and cigarettes. Mostly the groove lasts the entire session. I am currently recording these jambs with a single room mic and just saving the single track to listen back to and see what sounds cool to me and so forth. Now, this is where I'm at. What I want to know is where I should spend some money if I want to do the following... I have 5 hours of these improv sessions which I want to cut into individual tracks. What's a good way of doing it? I want to spend some money on getting a better sound for the guys in the band. I play loud and there small amps can't cope. Is getting a PA system and a power amp and mic'ing everything up a good way to get louder? I want to make a lot more noise and record more than a single track or at least be able to mix the sound levels from different parts of my kit and the guitars and vocals/ranting so things sound better when I record. I have spoken to the guys at the music stores around town and they really only try to sell me stuff not explain what I will need. Thanks in advance. \Also what's a good way for me to put some of what we've recorded up online to share?
