I'm kind in a situation where I'm really close to making a band ... and that means I need more than one input but now, the present, I want to record myself with a backing track or something... for me cheap is like 200 $i disagree about behringer.
For strictly non critical situations..i think its just fine for a low end
I actually use one in my home studio.
I run all outboard gear for recording (not touching the behringer).
This person needs to state more than "i want to start recording myself"
Do you plan on doing computer based? Or a stand alone recorder?
strictly 1 input at a time? 12 inputs at a time?
What is "isn't too expensive"?
To one person this could mean $100
to another person this could mean $2000.
Fill in the gaps and I can help you more.
Im not personally around that A&H board..but for the money Ive heardhttp://www.bswusa.com/proditem.asp?item=WZ3-16-2
I know a few guys that uses these. They swear by them. Remember how important a good preamp is for guitar tone? It's the same with a mixer. Everything in that mix is effected by the mixer. Plunging a guitar into a cheap amp is like plugging a singer or drums into a cheap mixer.
