    Multi-track Recording using Presonus gear
    I am new to Logic Studio (new to logic and recording- period). In fact, looking around for help in learning the program brought me to macprovideo and your forum:-) I have purchased a fire studio, and Digimax DS, with the intention of recording our band rehearsals (rock/pop- ten piece group). My question is: If I add another eight pre's, will my system be able to handle 24 channels at once? I ask this question having yet to record anything, but thank you in advance for any thoughts on the matter. Macbook Pro 2.2 Core 2 Duo, 2 GB DDR2 SDRAM, choice of Lacie Drive's with either my esata2 card (34 slot) or 400/800 firewire. Thanks again- Larry

    Hi Larry & Welcome to the forums! It's a good question. I'd recommend trying it out really. Make sure you're recording to the esata2 Lacie drive and try it out with different I/O Buffer rate settings (small ones = less latency, larger amount = more latency, kinder on CPU). I would also try not to add any DSP plug-ins (effects) on any of the channels until you come to the mixing stage. If there are issues then there might be some suggestions on how to streamline your system. For example adding more ram could help, etc etc.... Let us know how you get on. Thanks Rounik

    Thanks for the advice, Rounik! I'll be running direct out's from our Allen&Heath GL2400 (pre-fader) and I'll take your advice on larger buffer settings (since the degree of latency will not be a concern during our live rehearsal's). And I just purchased Logic 8 101 and am anxious to get started. Thanks, Larry
