We are thinking aboout making our own recording and this is what I can either borrow and or own for the recording process. Drum Mikes(shure)and plexi shield 2 Guitarists/ seperate miked Bass (DI/Bleed thru mikes) For all the inputs an Alesis 16 Channel mixer running all into a tascam 424 4 track and add vocals later. We are a metal band and practice in a meat packing plant with awful acoustics. Please add any input or suggestion to make this work or sound better. will just the mixer be good to send the signals to the 4 track? thanks for your time.
