so i am totally stoked that you can record two or more tracks simultaneously with GB2. i use it mostly for demos to teach songs to my band or to do tweaking before i get to the REAL studio. so here's the thing:
i would like to upgrade from the M-Audio Ozone so that I can record better drum tracks, record my band's rehearsals with everthing mic'ed, etc., soooo...
- is the M-Audio Firewire 410 (available at sweetwater for $299US) compatible with GB2?
- can i really record 4 tracks at once with that setup?
- will i need a RAM upgrade (currently at 512MB) to do it at all, let alone well?

I don't know about the first 2 but 512 ram is not nearly enough to do multitracks in GB which is an incredibly system heavy programDon't forget to use the new User Reputation System

No this M-audio forewire 410 will not work for multitrack recording (according to the description) "" Its 4-in/10-out configuration is perfect for personal recording where you build up tracks one at a time yet need multiple outputs"" what you would be looking for is a firewire interface with multiple channels i done a small search and i pulled the Edirol FA-101-firewire it is a little overkill as it has 10 channels or http://www.podcastingnews.com/items/Alesis/ALEIO2.htm this has 2 channels.
they do not differ to much in price so IMHo i would get the ten channel
interface because u can expand.

You would want at least 1 GB of RAM, possibly 2 GB if your machine can take it. If you use GarageBand extensively, it will be money well spent.__________________________________________________

has anyone here actually done any serious recording with GB2 yet? i.e. recording 5 or 6 tracks at once?
