Is it a typhoon? eight bus?If on a budget....You have Sonar right?, I think all you need is a 4 buss mixer for analoginputs, just for the ability to assign channels to DAW.The way we used to run was a 16 channel mixer split 8 in, 8 out for pre mix to2 stereo ins on the board back to sonar seperate tracks. It's awkward, but worked well.You can only track simultaenously x amount of tracks on x amount of spaces onsound card, so if you have 8, or 16 or whatever inputs on that soundcard, that will determinewhat you need. For example, if you have six inputs on a sound card, you would want a mixerthat has at least 6 POST FADER outs to daw. Not that you need post, again you only need preamps to DAW, you can "mix it in the box" all you need is a good signal to the DAW.Hope that made some sense, again, thats the economical way to do it, as well as a goodtest bed to get the routing down.My dime...
