Hey everyone I am also quite a newb to recording, got some basic equipment and im not sure whether or not upgrades are required/possible. I have last year's Mac book, apogee interface/logic pro. The thing is the Apogee/Duet interface only allows to inputs at one time, and Im looking to start recording some higher quality drums/multiple instruments at once. Along with that, even with just 2 imputs my Mac gives me the " system overload" message quite frequently. i tried out an interface with 8 channels and it struggled recognizing even one channel at times. I guess what im looking for is advice on whether or not to upgrade to a desktop Mac or even a G5 i think they're called, or can i upgrade my laptop as it is to handle multi-track recording? As well as, should i stick with the interface approach for recording more tracks? Any advice is much appreciated!
