OK, sorry to bug you all with another question. I'm learning so much lately and it brings up a lot of questions. So thank you for you guys being patient with me. I have a borrowed old M-Audio 2 channel interface with 2 XLR inputs. It took me a couple of times of using it to understand the fact that it is set up to record 1 stereo channel with an input for either side. Channel 1 is left side, Channel 2 is right side. For guitar and bass it's not ideal, but it has a really nice sound. And I am learning to work with it. I can just split the tracks and use one side mono track if I want to have it in the middle of the mix. One song I left the bass on one side and the rhythm guitar on the other and I kind of like that. Anyways... Are most 2 channel interfaces set up this way or no? Cuz My drummer is ready to upgrade from his cheap USB mic that doesn't do that great of a job to an interface with eventually 2 mics. But since we are using audacity, it would be best if the interface works as mine does. Cuz then we can mic the bass drum and then have one mic for everything else. And then split the tracks and have individual adjustment to mix. I know I could call sweetwater or whoever and find out from them but I figured I'd ask here first. As some of you may know off the top of your heads how the newer ones work. Or some of the popular brands. Money is tight so what he showed me this morning is one called a Midiplus Smartface II on amazon for only like 54 bucks. And then our music go round has one SM58 for 65 bucks. And then we would need another mic eventually. I'd rather not get into a debate on if a 58 is good enough for drums or not. I like 58's. I am using one now and it's a crap ton better than the CAD USB mic we both have. He also is looking at a focusrite single input one used (gen II) for 100 at music go round. But I told him I think it would be best if we try to figure out a 2 channel, as long as it is stereo like the one I got. Cuz as far as I know, you can't record multiple tracks from an interface into audacity. I realize other programs might have the ability to do that but right now we're using audacity cuz we're new at it and it's simple to use. And works well enough, IMHO. Maybe eventually I will get something better. I would probably be able to mix and master better with some other program.
