    I know you have the education of a third grader, and you should probably wait a few more years before you get into recording.

    Ahh...don't give it to much worry.

    We all have cranky days and feel like bitch-slapping the nearest offender. Jeremy's a good guy - he probably had a good reason for it (but I'm not him, so I can't say for sure... I am "a" Jeremy, but not "this" Jeremy...)

    For what you're trying to do this mixer will work. I have no idea how the alesis sounds but that probably doesn't matter. What matters is you can connect it to your computer via firewire and record multiple channels into a stereo track. the rest - you'll figure out on your own no doubt.

    Both the fire pod and the Alesis are nice but may be over kill for your needs.

    I still have and use this little guy
    (right now for monitors)
    but you need to ask what is the most you will mic,
    or the most input that you will use at one time.

    other then the drums on a live band, lets count them.
    Bass, rhythm and lead guitar =3........ lines so no bleed (I dont always mic)
    two singers =5 ........mics xlr
    key board and another mic =7 ......line and mic 1/4

    now everyone's different and this thread is budget gear
    and I still have three empty channels

    There is always more to it then that,
    but for recording at home its just me and the guitar
    since I am my band I might bring in another singer and one more guitar.

    Now you have to decide to go for looks or for functionality
