8 track recording (suggestions)

I'm new to recording music and am currently looking into purchasing an 8 track capable of simultaneously recording 8 tracks at the same time (bass,vocals,2guitars and drums)

need a hardware solution

any helps would be great, i figured this would be the best place to start

i need a hardware solution to record at the place we practice, planing on recording every session so that we have an archive of what we have done, as we have been playing for half a year together and need to start recording and gigging soon

so far i heard that the Yamaha AW1600 is ideal , is 600 quid around the price im looking at for this kinda hardware?

Ok CrysAk ;

got ya;

A aw1600 is a really nice recorder for you guys but it may be over kill;
I mean you can get smalled and cheaper. The aw1600 is sweet

But to stay in that area of DAW and down size the Bose 1200
is also very nice

and to Google multitrack recorder get lots like the
Fostex RD-8 Digital Multitrack Recorder
Zoom MRS8
The Tascam DP-01FX
and lots more

I have heard the quality and durability of the Bose is great
but its kind of a personal thing and I would see what your local store carries.

Good luck and please post a review of your thoughts after a few sessions
with your new gear.
