    yo, umm..pro-tools...as far as software. if you can't afford that, i suggest sonic foundry sound forge 6...
    as far as hardware, check out turtle beach. they have a great line of soundcards.

    fruity tracks is another great piece of software....plug for fruity loops...i used this shit in the production of mariah carey's last album

    i'm joking about mariah carey.

    are you using shitty needles? iv never had that problem.

    if you want a cheap digital multi track recorder, just use a wav program and run a line stright out of your mixer into the input of your sound cord and record it into a wav file, then mix it all together with acid or somthing. thats what i would do, but im not trying to make anything crazy and im fine recording straight to wav files, and using the level indicators and volume faders to keep the levels even

    if you like softwear. get pro tools, acid pro, cool edit pro. or something like that. got to a search engine and type multitracking sharewear, you will find a bunch of programs that will do what you want. i use cool edit pro and it has an option to equalize tracks. i imagine that would take care of the problem you have
    if you like hardwear:idea: cheack out some boss recorders. you can get a dope digital multitrack recorder for like 300
    um..... do you relize how fucking hard it would be to realign all of the tracks in perfect time. almost imposible

    there is a level problem. But i get 60 minutes of records then mix it in one shot so i need to record it all at once.

    thanks or th ideas so far.

    ill look in to the boss recorders.

    the normalize: wont that take Legitimately soft sound areas amd make the volume the same as a loud area?

    I would save up and get pro tools...My broke ass did...And I know what you are talking about with the levels being off...My advice would be to know the all the levels of the records before recording, and adjust before you mix...Plus in Pro tools there are all types of mixing features to help with sound...Plus you can use effects on voice overs and what not...The Mbox runs about 500...Well worth it...You need a pretty good computer with good memory...I got a G4 and needed extra memory, and I need to get more because the files take up mucho space...I dont know about any digital recorders though.....

    fuck buying protools when you can get a
    basic FREE version here: www.hitsquad.com/smm

    go there, then pick what platform you use, then
    go to 'audio recorders' or maybe 'editors' and there
    is a free, basic version of protools there. you get
    pretty much all you need unless you're some fucking
    bob rock kind of turd producing the next eagles album.

    haha, serum, honestly i was gonna write that... the gain does well for me. if you know your records, and punch in your mix 1st through your headphones, you're usually good. but maybe there's some other circumstances at work here...
