People frequently ask what equipment we use to record the podcast, so I figure I'll make a journal that I can direct people to with all the relevant information. Here is a list of the equipment we use and relevant links for it all.
With our setup we can have five people recording audio and wearing headphones. The limit is the number of headphone ports on the miniamp. I monitor audio directly off of the Alesis and everyone else plugs into the Behringer. We can record up to eight people but the last three people would not be able to monitor as they are speaking. I've found the headphones are good because it helps people be more conscious about not speaking over other people.
--edit-- I forgot to mention that of course we plug the mixer into my laptop and that is where GarageBand is running. I use a MacBook Pro www.apple.com/macbookpro/
