Multiple Input Devices?
Maybe Ardour does this already I'm on my windows machine and haven't had a chance to play with it yet. But with the advent of XRL to USB conversion cables such as those from Soundtech.com it would be great if I could connect say 6 or 8 of those bad boys and then record from each Mic to a separate audio track all at once.
The USB cables connect to any standard XRL mic, your SM57's ect. But every cable you plug in is detected as a separate audio device (at least in windows) so I need a program that can record from multilple audio devices simultaneously!
This way I could record a drum set with an individual audio track for each individual drum. Thus if the kick drum is too quiet in the recording I can simply increase the volume of the kick drum track! Or if I want to add a reverb effect to one of the tracks I can!
I have a linux box so I will eventually get around to downloading and playing around with ardour but so far no studio software I've found does what I'm describing. Does Ardour? Could Ardour?
