So i ran into a big problem about 6 months ago i bought an Alesis Multimix w/usb. (First Mistake right there). I bought it because it was just our 3 man band having fun rockin out. But people have been telling us that we are pretty good. So we tried recording with the multimix. wow. tell me about being a limited mixer. I took an audio engineering class so i know what a decent mixer should be capable of. But to top it off, we were recording into garageband 2 . So now were limited in our mixer and editing. Drums. Ok so when we record we have our drum mics plugged into an old Alesis PA/Mixer. and that is plugged into 1 channel on the mixer. Guitar/Bass -These are plugged straight into a seperate channel. Vocals -Vocals just sound so bad its rediclious, so right now im just trying to get the instrumental part sounding better! So my questions is.. What do i need to do so that when i edit each instrument is on a seperate track? Should i buy a new mixer? I know im doing alot of things wrong, would you suggest mic'ing up amps instead. Thanks for who ever replys!
