I used to record directly to my computer with an ECHO Layla interface. I could do 16 discreet tracks direct, and with Cakewalk, I can do 256 virtual tracks. Now I've upgraded my computer to a Win 10, Intel Core I7-6700k that runs at 4Ghz and has 2400GB ram. The old recording gear won't run on this 64 bit system, so I'm trying to figure out the best way in. Currently, I'm using a Zoom digital recorder that allows me to record 2 tracks at a time, but I'm used to using 16, so I'll have to get more gear. I've never said that before.
