    I've been using a Boss BR1180 for the last few years to record with..The most frustrating thing about it is that it only has 2 xlr inputs, so recording drums has its limitations..I use a Yamaha 12 channel mixer to get all the drum mics mixed onto one track, but this makes post editing impossible..I'm considering switching over to a laptop with Garageband installed..Is it possible to have isolated, multi mic recordings with this? If I have a 7 mic drum take, can I get that onto 7 individual tracks, or will I be in the same situation as the Boss unit that I already have?

    if you have an 8 channel interface you can record up to 8 separate tracks simultaneously in GarageBand I believe
