Okay so our my death metal band wants to do some recording. I have a Yamaha MG16/4 Mixing Console, a drum mic kit, Garageband, and a Mac Mini. I basically need to know anything and everything that could help me as I am just starting out. I want to be able to get a clear sound from the drums and a powerful but clear hit on the bass drum. And how should I go about recording the guitars? Should I mic up the amp or go directly in and use some specific settings or AU to get a clear but heavy distorted sound. I would buy a new program or Mbox or something but it will have to wait until I get a job and i'd really like to record before then. Any help you could give would be helpful... thanks!
