I have Cakewalk 4 and I'm trying to record direct to my CP four tracks at once, do I need a special sound card that can accept several inputs?

My Sound Blaster Live card has one input (stereo) and one mike input. I thought I could split the stereo input for two tracks and same with the mike input. The stereo input works well giving me two tracks but the mike only gives one and plays distorted. Also, I don't get the option to change the inputs or outputs on my sound card.

Is there a sound card I can get that will enable me to record 6 or more tracks at once (Live) and if so what brands? Any help on recording live at least four tracks at once would be appreciated.

Thanks,

AJ

AJ,
If you have or can add a firewire card to your PC, the Presonus Inspire (about $200) does 4 simultaneous input tracks and multiple units can be daisy chained for additional tracks. The A/D's and signal conditionaing are better than the typical PC sound card. It has 2 decent quality mike preamp channels and 2 instrument high impedance inputs. But it comes with Cubase LE. You could probably get it to work with your Cakewalk though. I've been happy with it so far.
