We've started a band where we have about 3 female vocalists, 3 male vocalists, and some of us will be playing guitar and/or keyboard at times instead of singing. When we have a song ready we'd want to record it, so question is what equipment would be suitable for our setup? We are PC users (not MAC). Would we need a mic for each vocalist? There may be chorus parts, can those be captured all in one mic, or is it better to have a mic each? What would be the best way to record a session? Would it be good to record all at once, or do certain tracks separately (we're all in the same room, no other option for now)? Any suggestions on equipment? (Audio interface, mics, headphones, etc)? I came across this: Amazon.com: PreSonus FireStudio Project 10x10 FireWire Recording Interface: Musical Instruments and this Amazon.com: Mackie PROFX12 12-Channel Compact Effects Mixer with USB: Musical Instruments The second one seems to have the effects knobs while the first one seems to be a plain interface. Is either more suitable for a band like this? I'd need to get mics, stands, headphones, and the audio interface, so trying to keep the costs down as much as possible, but still want to ensure we have sufficient equipment to do decent/convenient recordings.
