    ok yea, i'm new to recording, I bought a tascam DP-01, and im doing pretty good but i asked for some advice and i dont nkow what it means, i asked how to record a lot of vocals in a punkish sort of way, and i got this response:

    "Everyone at once using one mic... then track it a few times we usualy do liek three tracks of gang back up's "

    I get the mic thing... i just dont get tracking part... HELP

    'track' = 'record'

    For instance...
    if your using a 16 track recorder and you are recording 5 things at once. The second you press record, you are "tracking" or "multi-tracking"
