    Equipment list.

    Behringer Xenyx 24 channel amp.
    Audio Technica 7pc drum mics
    Audio Technica ATR30 Vocal Mic

    is it okay to record 2 channel stereo coming from the mixer itself? or do i have to use a some kind of recording interface such as the m-sudio firewire 410 and what not. i want to be able to mix outside the computer using the behringer. the main purpose of the computer is just 2 channel recording. Im so lost. thanks in advance! :p

    If you have 7 drum mics and 1 vocal mic going to 8 channels in the mixer you can set individual levels (mix) only before recording to stereo track. Once you have stereo track you can no longer mix.

    If you want to be able to mix after recording then you need to get each track recorded into 'multitrack' which would require an 8 channel firewire recording interface or 8 channels of preamp with 8 channels of converters.
