I don't notice any latency when I record either my electric guitar with a mic on the speaker cab or my electric drums using the line in.
I would like to record my real drums which is an 8 piece twin bass drum set. So I would like an interface that will allow me to record 8 channels at once. Ideally I would like it to manage 10-12 channels at once so I can mic the Hi-Hat and the ride plus 2 over heads for the rest of the cymbals. I could manage with just the 2 over heads as they are only for demos and if need be I can stick with just the drum shells miced.
I have been recording my kit with my Yamaha MD8 8 track recorder which is great until I come to download the tracks to my computer. I don't have a midi input on my PC or on the Audiogram. I am therefore restricted to 2 tracks at a time and syncing them up afterwards. As hard as I try to press play on the MD8 and record on cubase at the same time it never truly works.
So the main question is as of course I need a laptop for the interface as my drums are at my parents and not in my flat, what would be the best interface to suit my needs and the cheapest laptop system it would run on comfortably?
Time for the Glacia to flow.
