Well, im kind new to recording so im in need of some help.

Im trying to set up a little "studio" to record me drumming and my buddies doing there thing.

So, with that said, heres the situation:

I want to get a pci interface (cheap) that when i use whatever program (protools most likely) it will record my drums in different tracks at the same time when i play.

I have:
Nady DMK-7 Drum Mics (and enough cables)

Behringer Eurodesk SL2442FX-PRO Mixer

I want to get:
M-Audio Delta 1010 PCI Digital Audio System

Now with all these i want all my drum mics tracks to show on protools or whatever, my question is: can i do that? and if i cant how do i do that?

Your pretty well set with that list as far as getting everything into the computer. I wouldn't go with Pro Tools but thats a personal choice, my DAW of choice is Sonar 6PE.

You can do it. Sonar 6 is better than Pro Tools, even if only because of the price. IMHO...

I own an M Audio Delta 1010LT and it works great. For around $239 it gives you 10 balanced/unbalanced inputs, ten outputs balanced/unbalanced, a MIDI in/out, a Word Clock in/out, and a S/PDIF in/out. It has mic pres on inputs 1 and 2.

There are others too, but I'm not too familiar with them.

Reaper is better than Sonar, even if only because of the price =) - IMHO

ok, all kidding aside, his only choice for protools would be m-powered protools, which is only like 250$. (reaper=$40)

if the mixer has direct outs on each channel, then that will send signal to the inputs for the interface.

Otherwise, you can use the channel inserts as direct outs (plug jack into insert, but only to first click).

Should work well.

yeah the each mixer channel has an I/O, but thanks for the help everybody.
