Forgive me if this has been discussed into the ground, but I searched and couldn't find exactly what I'm looking for, probably because I may be using the wrong terms. Here's the deal, I'm in your "typical" cover band. One of the issues we have is being able to practice outside of our get togethers. Practicing with the actual track is all well and good, but there are a number of songs we play differently (be it in a different key, higher tempo, or with a different feel) so it's difficult to practice these away from the band. I'm pretty tech savvy, and have a monster of a laptop, so I had an idea. One of my DJing tools has an external sound card that can double as an ASIO device giving me a number of ins and outs. I was thinking about setting it up to record each channel individually while we're all playing as one. I know I could just record the whole band as one, then just kill the bass for myself (wouldn't even have to kill anything actually, they plug into the PA, I don't, so I'd be out of the mix regardless), but that doesn't help the guitarists. I'm just wondering about the feasability of recording everyone live on an individual track, software suggestions, alternative ideas, etc.
