Default Yamaha digital recorder questions

I am thinking about buying the Yamaha MD4S Multi-Track Mini Disc Recorder. I was wondering if you could plug in 2 guitars, a mic and somehow record a drumset too. Also can you plug the recorder into your computer with proper software and edit the tracks, or does it just record it onto the cd.

Thanks so much

Ps. maybe i could record the drumset with another mic that i could plug into one of the inputs.

I would get a some pc software and run protools or cakewalk or something. You will also need to get an interface depending on the amount you can record at once will depend on this interface. This software gives you the ability to expand your sound with what feels like unlimited possibilies.

You can find this info at you favorite music store or online.
