I've been driving myself nuts on how to do this for a while. I've got an M-audio Audiophile 192 PCI sound card with 2 main outs, 2 monitor outs, 2 In, 2 MIDI, and S/PDIF I/O. All of those are 1/4" inputs as well. Im using Pro Tools M Powered for my sequencer. My question is, if I'm recording a drum set with 12 mics, (and let's say hypothetically I'm using a 16 channel mixer with enough XLR inputs to hook all the mics up to record,) how do I get a studio set up to where I can get two way communication between the mixer and my DAW? More specifically so that I can record to 12 individual mono tracks in pro tools instead of just hooking up one stereo connection between the mixer and the soundcard. What do I need extra to make that happen? I want to be able to manually control everything on the mixer board instead of just being able to record the track for drums one time and on playback not being able to control the level of each drum or room mic individually. I hope I'm not being too confusing. Thanks for any possible help!
