    Basically, will recording this way be possible and provide good results? The instruments all get recorded at once, while the vocal parts get done at a separate time.

    It will work, to create a demo. I personally think you’d be better off buying an interface with 8 mic pres and mic up Kick/Snare/Overhead/Overhead, Bass amp, Bass DI, Guitar amp.

    You're going to need some better cables. Those look kinda squiggly. :)

    Apollo twin as ADAT input. So expandable to 10 inputs.

    Why not track them?

    I record a rough track, usually guitar, to a click track or some repetitive drum track, to hold the structure together.

    I then record the bass track. This is usually a bit of cut and paste to save time.

    Then I record each guitar part perfectly.

    I go back through and take care of the drums.

    If you are going to add vocals later, and you are recording midi (drums), rather than the output of the live drums, what benefit is there to record the guitars 'live'?
