    As in having the drums separate from the sound effects?

    yeah.

    For ease of use, I dont know whether mixing the drums then bouncing them down to a single channel that goes to the P.A and sound effects etc are on another inidividual channel.

    Or if I should have
    Snare - Separate
    Kick - Separate
    Toms - Separate
    Cymbals - Separate

    etc etc.

    I will be able to go either route once I get the Scarlett 18i it just working out what the most effective way would be.

    If you go with the Scarlett, then yes, each track separate would work well.

    That depends on you. If you are happy with your drum sounds and its mix just have it all going on 1 track. Will make your life and the FOH guys life much easier and a shit load easier to set up. All the FOH guy will need to do is maybe tweak it slightly with a bit of EQ as obviously your drums will sound a little different from PA to PA and room to room etc

    yeah thats what Im thinking.

    Maybe just keep the more in depth drum mix option for when we are headlining and for every other show, just bounce the drum down to 1 mixed/mastered WAV.
    I can just create 2 backing track sessions then pick whichever one depending on where we are on the card.
