live trio recording and hard drive errors

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Apr-16-06 AT 10:56 PM (EST)]Friday night we cleared out our living room, and my trio came over. We invited about 25 people and I cooked an Italian meal. Our living room has great acoustics-harwood floors, lath walls, and arched ceiling on all walls. It is 20' x17' and the house was built in 1936. THe lath walls are very dense.
We set up the band, and all of us were within 3 feet of each other. I used the PA for just a smudge of volume, so I sing quietly when I wanted. It was done on 5 tracks-
vocals/harp-1
guitar amp - 2,3
drums-5,6

we left the bass alone. MY friend Ar E, blew some sax in a lazy boy, and LoriLu, of our forum came up with her daughter. LoriLu played on one, but it was on the error side of the thing-bummer. Our volume was very low. I really only neded the PA on the quiet singing/harp songs. We had a blast. Patti Sterling was suppose to be here, but she hurt her knee. We are hoping to see her up here soon!

That is the good news. The bad news is about 2/3 of the second set got messed up. The best way to describe it is like this- each track soounds good alone, but when all are on, it is like they all start different times. There is a pop right when it happened. I get this sometimes, when I record extended times, like 20+ minutes, without stoping and saving. Has anyone had this problem before, and is there a cure?

I salvaged 2 of the messed up songs. A darkness fell over our land. This one had a pop in it, and it was like the thing skiped. The other song, Riptide, an instrumental, I used only the vocal/harp track, and the drum tracks. It stayed fairly intact. Any help on this would be appreciated! Thanks Walter

the songs:
a darkness fell over this land
greed means we go down
don't knwo if I want to live anymore
moaning for your love
illegal imigration in the usa
riptide
the old bluesmen touched my heart
I got the blues for sure
does this make sense?

Hi Walter . Great sounding stuff Walter.. the "pop" could it be a sample rate thing on the Delta control panel?
