I'm a newbie "recorder" and I'm looking for ideas to help me record a huge a capalla choir (150 members) with 4-5 part harmony. I also do live recordings of local commmunity events. In the past I've used a pair of akg 414 mics along with a mackie mixer and Panasonic DAT recorder. I'm now in the market for a new recorder system. I may want to to record 4-5 tracks separately to enable further tweaking, if nessary, after the recording. I'm planning to use my computer with Adobe Audition to edit and master the recordings. What equipment would be recommended for this setup. I''ve looked at the Mackie Onyx mixer with firewire out as one option, but I'd then like to record it to some form of Hard driver recorder with firewire in? Apparently the Mackie has high quality pres. What do you guys think? Ideas? Model numbers?
