I use a four input card to record to my PC. They do a range of different multiple input sound cards for home and semi-pro recording.


It can be an expensive and complicated game to get into though! You need to ask yourself if you really need to record all the tracks at the same time? When the band I'm in is demoing stuff we lay down a couple of guide tracks then take turns to lay down the full individual parts on top of it.... it's the joy of digital recording! You can stick down as many tracks as your PC can handle!


Mind we only use this stuff for demos.... unless you really know what you're doing seems better to spend the money on getting somebody to record you who has already learned from making all the mistakes themselves IMHO etc, etc


oh yeah the traditional disclaimer I have no connection with the people who make these cards I'm just a happy customer.....
