My hardware collection is growing and I’m trying to decide what kind of mixer or multitrack recorder to get. My inspiration kind of dies if I try to record each instrument separately to DAW one at a time. Without mixer or recorded I’ve ended up recording all the gear in a single track while jamming but it doesn’t leave so much possibilities for post editing.
I’ve found some interesting options online, one is Soundcraft Signature 12MTK. It seems to be a stand alone mixer but also work as a 12 channel USB interface (it sounds very promising). Some other options I’ve found are some digital multitrack recorders that work without computer.
I’m sure I’m not the only one struggling with this issue, so what are your solutions to this problem? What are the pros and cons of using a mixer/interface vs recorder. What gear do you use?
