1) Is GB2 a competant program to handle such a task?
Can one set up
three or more channels to record simultaneously each
Up to 8 channels, with gate, compression, eq, reverb, echo, and a chocie of 2 more effects from a long list.
2) What outboard I/O would I need to get to handle
the microphone imputs?
Currently Being ModeratedDec 19, 2005 10:43 AM (in response to HangTime)Your expression "hour-long" is somewhat unspecific, so you should be aware of the fact that GB limits the recording length to 999 bars. Since the meter doesn't matter for your purposes, you can stretch the actual recording length to something like 99 minutes by choosing a low tempo. See details in HangTimes' FAQ at http://www.thehangtime.com/gb/gbfaq2.html#recordlength.
And you don't have to worry about EQs and effects while you're recording, you can set everything after you're done.12 Powerbook G4 867 MHz, Mac OS X (10.4.3)

Check out the firePod from Presonus. In summary, it is an 8-channel input device with firewire connectivity. The OEM software is Cubasis LE (a limited version of Cubase).

Currently Being ModeratedJan 8, 2006 8:32 AM (in response to Joel Kurpius)The firepod is an excellent device with awesome mic pres. Cubase is a very good program to use. The benefit is you can use either GB or Cubase with the firepod. (You may find more plugins for dynamics in cubase).Powerbook G4 1.67ghz, Mac OS X (10.4.3), ProTools 7.0 Mix Engineer
