Live-ish recording help needed
So…I've been researching recording stuff for an upcoming project. I haven't seen exactly the information I need, so I'm outsourcing to you!
I have the following equipment, and I'm trying to determine what, if anything I need to change/buy to be able to do this.
Dynamic mics for vocals
One cardioid condenser
Zoom handy corder that can be used as a usb mic
Stereo pair of small diaphragm mics
A Tascam handy corder that could capture the whole room, but not much else.
Acoustic guitar with a pickup
Small perc (kick, snare, djembe, and some hand perc)
Six channel mixer (Alto ZMX 862)
Native Instruments Komplete 6 Audio interface (6 channel, with midi)
Propellerhead Reason or The Reaper or GarageBand for a DAW
I'd like to be able to keep my lead vocal and bass channels separate so I can overdub them later.
If you had these items, would you record the band (perc, guitar, keys) in one mix, and route the lead vocal and bass separately? Would I be able to route groupings to different tracks in a DAW with the equipment listed above?
For that matter, how many channels would I actually have at my disposal?
Any advice appreciated.
