Hello! The next few questions may seem pretty stupid to you more knowledged people in this field, but... I was looking around for a good recording interface for my band, and I came across the Presonus Firepod, which I am 98% going to buy in the next few weeks. Before I do I have some questions though. 1. (Stupid Question) What do the inputs do and what can plug into them - also what do the outputs do and what can plug into them as well. 2. I have 4 mics for the drums, 2 for vocals, 2 for guitars, 1 for bass. Since this is computer recording, would I need other equipment such as a mixer, compressor, etc, or does all of that already come with the recording program (Cubase). 3. What other besides good tuning and correct placement of the mic, could better help the sound of the drums, specifically the kick. 4. What is better for over-head recording. X-Y or on both sides? Thank you much!
