Welcome to HRC.

You can submix your whole band in to a total of four different groups and record that to four different tracks, so unless you have extra preamps, some direct outs on channels or are running some instruments direct, you will be limited to four groups.

Agree with dB there. Does your mixer have direct outs on any of the channels, or possibly inserts?

The insert points on some of the larger mixers, or any with actual inserts on say the first channels with XLR inputs, can be cheated into being a direct output. What you will do is only push the cable in to the first click I believe and this will give you a direct output signal from that channel only. So that way say your baord only has 2 sub channels outs, and you need 8, you can just use those channels with the inserts for direct channel outputs.
