Ok, I apologize for not knowing what I don't know and if that translates into my question(s).
I am just getting into my audio recording journey, and I cannot seem to find an answer that directly relates to my question, dozens of posts seem to peck around it but not at it.
I am considering purchasing the Studio 68c, but I cannot find out if it will do exactly what I want it to do.
I have 4 audio sources;
3.5mm computer mic
PC audio (audio output from one PC)
PC audio (audio output from another PC)
I want to record the 4 tracks separately into -insert DAW software here-
Be able to monitor the 4 combined tracks, pre-PC processing
Everything I am finding online is sequentially recording separate tracks and adding them into a DAW in post OR multitrack recording using an external mixer and them all being condensed down into a single track for recording on a PC.
I have been using a ZED FX 10 for years now, and I am ready to upgrade from single track into multitrack recording that is saved as separate tracks in a DAW.
I apologize if this is a poorly worded question, since I am a newbie I don't have the lexicon yet for concisely wording what I am looking for.
4 separate inputs
1 PC Workstation
Want to record the 4 inputs simultaniously as separate tracks in an appropriate piece of software (Studio One 5?)
Will the Studio 68c and Studio One 5 accomplish this? Or the 1810?
