I have been using GB2 for a recording a small rock quartet project. Thus far I have only made rough single track recordings just for the purposes of gaining some insight into strengths and weaknesses of our matireal but in the coming months I want to multi-track a selction of our numbers to a more exhibitive end. So, I am wondering if I should invest in LE7 or stick with GB2. GB seems pretty powerful so far and I have not ran into any situation yet that I can say that I could not do what I needed. I can say though it seems kind of a pain in the ass to cut sections of a track (compared to Cubase anyway which I can no longer use.) For example we did one take and I had to hit record and run across the room to get to my mic and guitar. When editing I wanted to shave the beginning seconds off of course. I figured it out eventually but it seems kind of awkward and seemed like it would be hard to get very accurate though I didn't care to mess with that eiting feature at the time. Anyway, as I get into multi tracking will I perhaps find GB to be insufficiant? Are there some things that GB lacks that are necessary if one is attempting to make a really fine recording? I am pretty much of the 'if it ain't broken don't fix it' view here but have no foresight here. I don't know if this is relevant or not but here is my set up and proposed method: - Computer: C2D MBP 2.16 w/ a 5400 HD - External HD: Don't have one but it has been recommened that I get an external 7200 FW 800 espesially with so many tracks. - Software: as mentioned, GB2 - Interface: Recently purchased a Presonus Firepod and it seems pretty nice. - Mics: vocals: SE electronics vocal condensor (supposed to be pretty good.) instruments: 2 pencil condensors (CC02's or something) that were about $100 for the pair so they are nothing fancy, Audio Technica instrument mic, Shure 57, some old Sennheiser mic that I was told was excellent for recording the bass drum. I'll do the vocals with the SE of course and probably use the Shure 57 on the guitar amps and run the bass cabinet straight to the Firepod. That all seems pretty standard. As far as the drums go I am pretty clueless. I have 8 mic inputs on the Firepod so I will put each to use for recording the drums but I'll have to get a few more mics. I'll just have to do alot of expermenting on the drums. If anymore info is necesary let me know and thanks for reading!
