    So my band decided that we want to start doing some recording. We've got an alesis multimix usb 12 mixer, mics, cables and all that stuff. Also, I've got a version of cubase installed.
    The main problem is, we want to record everything on sperate tracks. Right now we have the main out running into the computer and everything is recording stereo. But idealy, everything would be on different tracks on cubase so that each instrument can be seperately tweaked and EQ'd, post recording. I've looked into the mixer, and if i understand right, there is no way for the USB series to "multitrack" (it isnt usb 2.0)
    Unless I'm wrong about the mixer, I'm looking for the most efficient way to record everyone playing live on different tracks onto the computer. Meaning cheapest and easiest to understand because im fairly new to this.

    (1) total channel count? I'd guess 8 from that Multimix but I dunno.

    (2) does your PC have firewire?

    Ahh the old double post, should stick with one forum and your post in newbies is probably the best place for this.
