Ahh, so 2 channels is the way to go? I'd love to be able to change the
relative volume of the instruments afterwards as i've got a habit of
playing a little too loud vs the lead singer ;) Also our lead
guitarist is often way too quiet. Though if everyone has there own mic
i guess you get strange phase effects? A pair of condensers is best?
Non-matched ok?
