USB Mixer

I've got a question about USB mixers... say I were to buy an 8 channel USB mixer to use for recording a drumset. Given that the mixer was compatible w/ my recording software would I be able to send individual channels from the mixer to individual tracks on the multitrack program? ie. put the kick through channel one of the USB mixer and have it alone record onto track one of my multitrack program? Thanks!

I am guessing that you would be able to do that, though you would have to check the manual...8 channel mixers don't always mean 8 direct outputs...

You want to check the number of available outputs, not the number of channels the mixer has.

Exactly what mixer are you talking about here? I know Firewire can do that, but am not sure about USB doing it yet.
