    Try a general recording with outputs from the board--just to get a general idea--and then use that as a starting point

    It wouldn't be double tracking to just set something up for the whole band together live--but for some instruments you might be able to do that...
    Plan it out ahead--it also depends on how many inputs you have.
    My recorder has 8 tracks, but I can only record on 2 at a time.

    I think my Tascam has 24 tracks but 8x XLR inputs.

    Ok--8 inputs--cool that should help a lot--and give you different options for recording as an ensemble...

    Yeah- probably most importantly is the drummer alone would probably need 8 inputs- they typically mic most of the kit separately

    For just a rough idea during a rehearsal or performance you could get away with less--I was suggesting a demo kind of thing--not something you woudl release to the public...

    Still some pretty impressive recording have been done with a lot fewer mics on the drums, etc.

    You are probably right that we should just do it and not think so much.

    My biggest concern is although I am pretty good at keeping time, I'd rather have a drummer keep me 100% in line. On guitar I might not be able to detect if I inadvertently modulate between 120-122 BPM whereas a drummer should be rock solid in that department.
