Hi, My friend and I are looking to get some recording equipment for our band and I was wondering what option we have available in our price range. Here's the stuff we've been looking at: Roland VS-1880 (the compression issue worries me a little) Alesis HD24 (Alesis got bought out, didn't they?) Yamaha 4416 (even though that's a little higher than our price range) What we're looking for is something with enough channels/tracks, GOOD recording quality (and by good I mean very good), some portability, and a mixer included. An all-in-one unit is good since you can record/edit/etc. on it, but I really wouldn't mind something that'll give me a good recording, then I can transfer it onto the computer (w/o getting a SCSI setup) for final editing/mix downs/burning (that would actually be better). I'm not all that familiar with recording equipment, so I need your help. Thanks in advance.
