Hey forum! So I was wondering something here.....now, I'm pretty sure I've heard you can't do it, but I REALLY need to make sure before I go out and spend all that cash! I'm recording mainly drums, but also some band stuff, and I wondering if it's possible to record each mic on a separate track, going straight from the mixer to the computer. If not, do I need to: 1. Learn myself how to do it? 2. Buy a new mixer? It's a DOD 820 mixer (OLD!!), and it's RCA splitter to TRS 1/4" connection, going directly to the soundcard on my desktop. 3. Buy an audio interface to go alongside my mixer? 4. Ditch my mixer altogether, and just go plainly with an audio interface? 5. I've got it completely wrong and I need help directing me in the general right direction? I don't really have any attraction to my mixer, so I would have no problem selling it. I realize I don't exactly NEED it, as I can use an electronic one. I just need 42V phantom power, and XLR inputs, and a way to connect it to my PC. I've also heard of the M-Audio ProFire 2626, which pretty much seems exactly what I need, and is also exactly out of my price range I'm pretty sure there are some good deals on Ebay, but I'll need to check it out. And I don't need to be told: it's more of an investment rather than a purchase. I know, it's just I don't HAVE $500... ANYWAY, if anyone has a solution (for little monetary loss, hopefully), I would really appreciate it!
