Hello Recording.org. I am trying to track down some information and this seems like a great place to start. I am trying to set up a podcast with some friends. We have 4 people. The goal is to have everyone on a microphone recording in a roundtable discussion where each person is on a separate track. We would like to all be recording the podcast at the same time. But for editing purposes and post we would like to have each person on a separate track. Lets assume we have an unlimited budget for this. (even though that's not the case). It seems very difficult in tracking down information on where to start with this. I have looked up information on Mixers. What we were thinking would be to set up a mini home studio with a mixer which takes in 4 Microphone inputs. And the mixer plugs in to the computer and we hit the record button on our audio software and it records 4 separate tracks. But it seems that because the mixer only has one input to the computer it is only sending one track? Can mixers take in multiple inputs and spit out multiple tracks? Other solutions we were looking at are microphones that record right to an SD card. And that everyone would have one of those (or 2 people might share one). Those tracks would be recorded separately and then we could put it all together in our software package. What kind of technical terms should I be looking at? Are there alternative solutions? The mixer seems so elegant, I'm disappointed it doesn't seem to work this way. Thanks very much for any help you guys can provide. Some sort of starting point to all this is great.
