Default Tracking multiple drums

Hello everyone.

I want to record my 10 piece drumset but be able to mix and effect each mic separately once recorded. Do I need 10 separate inputs or can I go directly from my 32-track mixer into say an Mbox? If not, what are some possible solutions please?

Regards,
Deryl

HI,

you need 10 inputs but none of the digi inputs comes with 10 inputs installed, they "only " have 8.
so you need to record each track sequentially with an MBOX or buy an additional AD converter with a ADAT interface, giving you 8 more inputs with a digi 001/002 or an A/D with S/P DIF output giving you the 2 more inputs needed.

or one HD system.

So I could connect an A/D converter to a Digi001 or 002 but not to an Mbox?

Thanks.

That is correct. The Mbox only has SPDIF which is stereo. The 001 and 002 models have ADAT lightpipe in/out and there are a few decent 8 channel mic pre's with lightpipe out. Focusrite Octopre(w/optional card) Digimax 96, Digimax LT are the most popular. Actually the 002 models can record up to 18 inputs, 8 on lightpipe, 4 mic pres internal, 4 line inputs by using external mic pres and 2 on the SPDIF input with an external 2 channel pre.

What good are the SPDIF inputs for? Is there a mic pre I can buy that has SPDIF outs?

Thanks again.

Hi,

Quote:

Those are noe only Input but 1 output, too. One Stereo SPDIF IN and One SPDIF Stereo OUT.
in case you want some better D/A conveters than the MBOX has or to add a MicPre or a Reverb with loss of audioo quality.

Yes, something like Apogee Mini ME or SPL Gainstation or TLA 5060 (D-I/O boards go extra)

pricey, pricey

Hi Guys, sorry for jumping in but I am wondering about the same question with my drums. Could I plug in a MOTU 828 into the optical in port on my 002 rack and use the pre's on it for extra inputs?
