Found this on the AGF - copy and use as you wish... ;-)

you can get better at same price point ..for example Yamaha Audiogram 3 or 6,  Behringer Xenyx series.

Avid on the other hand seems over-priced..

U may have seen this pic before:

by 'only way', i meant only  economical way...

you buy a $5000 16 channel audio recording pcb for your computer :)

I have a buddy who did that, and he bought a 32 channel Mixing board to go with it.

windows 7 allows only one active recording input. The only way to get 2 tracks is to assign guitar and mic to separate stereo channels. USB audio interfaces make this easy, and remove the aggravating problem of ASIO drivers not working with VIA audio chipsets. 

Even Best Buy sells usb recording equipment, Avid brand I think. Yamaha, Behringer and many other companies provide relatively low cost USB audio recording solutions. When you use DAW software, your Mixing Board is on screen, greatly reducing one of the main expenses in a recording setup.

Now if only I had a engineer to ride the levels, so I can concentrate on making music :) :)

best accomplished with a usb interface.. and ASIO drivers

i made a youtube of one tune off an album i recorded in 2002 as Bobbie McMahon. I'm reluctant to post it. It sounds poorly mixed to my ears now.

Funny that google can find the album on some very wierd sites (malware sites?), I guess it and others were ripped from newsgroups I posted to in those days. Or the track listing was copied from FreeDB.

Nearly all my recording are made to document the compositions or arrangements..for my memory...not for consumption

I home record everything through my Samson Zoom Q3HD and I get reasonable audio/video that suits my purposes.  I've done maybe 50-60 youtubes so far.  Easy to use and not terribly expensive.  THIS REVIEW is pretty much spot on with the pros and cons.  It cost me about $225 on Black Friday last year at Sam Ash.

so that's a no?  :)

Comment by Robert Williamson on October 8, 2013 at 7:07am

The forum seems comatose, perhaps we should start a Discussion here on home recording our Seagulls?

Re the Hygroset meters I've discussed previously.

You may want to be certain you have extra batteries for them. The one's that come with the meter die quickly. One has already died. and you DO have to recalibrate when you change battery. Having two of them, it was easier for me. I just put them side by side and set the one with new battery to old one. IF you have only one, you will have to do the 24hour 75% Calibration procedure again.
