I'm looking to doing some recording for my band. I would like to mic the drums up with one on each drum and two overheads. So I need at least 7 inputs to the DAW (Mixcraft 6). Up to this point I've just used my POD as the interface as the two inputs were enough for me, work fantastic for the guitars and vocals. But 2 ain't gonna cover it unless I mixed down the drums with external mixer which I really don't want to do; I would like to have the change to EQ each drum to get the best sound, plus the stereo field options too!
Anyway, I'm looking to see if anyone has any recommendations on 7 or above input interface that will not break the $$$. I figure I'm in the 500-700 ranger already just to get that many inputs over usb and/or firewire.
