I have been recording with a BR1600, all inclusive and easy to use. I have been recording and writing my own songs and using it to post music for feedback. Now, I am to the point of wanting to record them and get a top shelf sound out of them (I intend on selling my music), I have been talking to a guy from GC who seems to be well versed, however I want to get it right. He told me I would want an apogee symphony, lunchbox, and pro tools, I have zero experience and need some insight, I need at least 8 mic inputs and need it user friendly. Help please!!!
