So, Something like the Delta 1010 or Maki Onyx lines would work just fine to have multiple instruments recorded on their own channel all at once?

I checked out the recommended equipment list on the wiki and noticed it has recently expanded. Are people reporting on new equipment that works with Audacity somewhere? I haven't seen much talk of it here.

Thanks,
David

Probably not worth the effort.

If you were using "VST instruments" or using a sound card that lacked
zero latency monitoring, then ASIO would be a significant benefit, but
Audacity does not support support VST instruments and you should be
able to use zero latency monitoring with your hardware, so there is
little or no benefit in using ASIO with your setup.

my work flow is familiar. The learning curve is gentle.

I have other options to try and figure out how to record multiple tracks at
once on my input devices; Berringer Q1202 and Peavey USB8, but I'd like to
use Audacity because the learning curve is gentle. Other software options
include Reason, but I would need to take the time to learnhow to use it...
probably would need to spend time scripting it.

I could compile ASIO into Audacity but the learning curve there seems
immense. I haven't done Windows development since my son was born in 2006.

Any suggestions how to decide where to put my efforts? My main goal is to
continue recording daily... I'd like to add multi track capability with the
least amount of learning curve. Audacity with ASIO seems like the best
option for me, but I'm not super interested in the learning curve needed to
compile the ASIO version of Audacity.

Suggestions? Thanks to all,
David
