Question Best Equipment for Portable Recording

Hi guys! After spending a lot of money, i bought a MacBook Pro following some advices i read here and my own experience. I went for the 17 inch one, with backlit keyboard (i love it) and have started recording some tracks of my best friend who sings and plays the guitar.
So, i want to start a project which involves going to gigs recording the performance, then i mix it at home an deliver a CD/send MP3 to the band, and, so, i need a good interface with lots of analog inputs. Which one should i get? Am i missing something? A Mackie, for example? Thanks in advance.

Edit: let's say i have to record a band with drums, guitar, bass, voices, keyboards, and so on. An option is to buy a small mixer for the drums and apply a regular/standard/whatever processing to avoid buying more interfaces....

Talking Best Equipment for Portable Recording

I think a Mackie Onyz 1640 would work very well for you. They are about $1600 street price with the firewire out option. That will give you 16 very good mic pres with direct out via firewire. If 16 channels isn't enough you can add a second one for 32 inputs.

They are very convenient to use because you have a bit of metering on every channel.

Jay,

Are you making a point about this setup or do you also have a question?

We're all "ears" if you do.

Are you connecting this rig to a laptop?

This was meant to be a reply to another thread.... I have no idea where that thread went!

When I first noticed it I assumed it was a forum glitch that would get worked out.

Hopefully who ever had the question will stumble upon this

ok, I found the proper thread.

My guess is that the thread was being moved as I was replying.

Now the two threads are merged together and everything is everything.

Next time click on the "post reply" button instead of the "new thread" button.

I'm not 100% sure, but I'd be willing to bet the I did click reply. When I replied the thread was in Music computers. A day later I found the two separate threads in this area.

All's well the ends well. Thanks for merging them.
