Its words don't matter at all to me...  ;-) But thanks...!  In fact I know my
lack of knowledge and that's why I'm here to ask questions to expert people.
It's been very useful, I've learning a lot.  Thanks to the precious help you
all provided I'm now planning to buy the Behringer UMC404HD audio interface and
also one of those Behringer B5 microphones as suggested, and test it.  Then
with the UMC404HD I'm going to do do some home-made multichannel records and
also that sort of strange experiment of playing more than 2 different channels
simultaneously out of a multichannel audio file.
