Because, unless you have a card that handles multiple inputs, you'll
be better off with the 4 mics in the H2. I use 8 mics when I record my
band - two condenser overheads for the drums, 1 snare mic, 1 kick mic, 1
mic on bass, 1 mic on each of two guitars. The overheads are an AKG and
a Marshall condenser. The kick is a cheap AKG kick mic (I don't
remember which one), a cheap AKG on the snare, SM57s on the guitars and
bass. My sound card is an ST-Audio DSP 2000 C-Port with 10 inputs.

"Microsoft has a new version out, Windows XP, which according to
everybody is the 'most reliable Windows ever.' To me, this is like
saying that asparagus is 'the most articulate vegetable ever.'"
