    assuming u have a computer already i recommend a good sound card to connect ur mixer to computer or use a digital recorder. i use a boss br-600 but if u go boss for recording i suggest the next step up. for you, getting a good daw for your stuff is good, and to ensure you can edit later easier, u could sell the yamaha and get a firewire mixer, so you can edit all the tracks you record simultaeneously later. i use an analog mixer and i hate not being able to compress each drum mic seperately. 4 mic setup on drums plus a decent daw means nice drum tracks, guitars can always be recorded direct too
