The only recording experience I have is when my band records. Not to knock him, but my bands guitarist who does most of the set up and mixing doesn't do very well with the drums. I would like to toy around myself with recording/mixing at home. Right now, I have some unimpressive but trusty mics, including a Nady DM80 kick mic and a pack of seven Karma Audio condensers designed for drums. I know that I can get better sounds out of these mics than I do, but I need to practice recording on my own time. Right now, I have only the mics and cables. My bandmate has a mixer.
I need to know what I need and nothing more, the most inexpensive mixer/alternative I need to start making drum tracks. Can someone give me a rundown? Thanks.
