    Hey guys, i'm looking to start up some home recording space, however i need some gear suggestions.

    i'm looking to get a pro tools setup, however the $$ for the tdm stuff is YUCK. so i was checking out the digi 002/003 factory models. the first problem i run into just in this initial gear-shop-phase is drums. the digi 002/003 only have 4 inputs which means i can only get 4 drum track channels to tape.

    does anyone know of any other options aside from an HD I/O that can get me my independent drum tracks so i dont have to record an entire set bounced down to one stereo track?

    i was also checking out the control 24, if i could ever find one used and decently priced... i heard it runs through PT LE, but does anyone know how many tracks can be recorded simultaneously via the firewire(?) output?

    Your alternative may be to utilize different software that would allow you to use other manufacturers hardware for greater microphone input count. After recording into Adobe Audition, Sony Vegas, et al., you can then take those already recorded tracks and import them into pro tools. You can then go on with your overdubbing process and mixing, in Pro tools.

    There is no one-stop solution. We all use a myriad of stuff and techniques and our imagination. Especially our imagination. Everybody has their own method to workaround whatever shortcomings we have to deal with. It's the figuring out what works best process that takes a long time.a

    You're on your way!
