Hello, my name is Rob. I'm a frontman for a band called KATALYST in Bradenton, FL. I am trying to tackle the recording myself. Not only because studio time is expensive, but I really enjoy all things surrounding music anyway, so I would love to learn about recording. Anyway, I have enough stuff to start. I have a full PA system, 24 channel mixer board, all mics, cables, etc. I have Mixcraft 5 on my laptop, but haven't messed around with it much. My new toy though is a ZOOM mrs1608CD 16 track digital recorder. We are trying to record better quality demo material to give to venue owners, and be able to get solid recordings of our original material as well. If anyone has any pointers for me, I would really appreciate it. Thank you for your time.
