It's possible to get a great recording with 1 stereo mic into a recorder. Cowboy Junkies did it with "The Trinity Session". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Trinity_Session
They had a great room with great acoustics. They had a $9000 Calrec Ambisonic mic into RDAT. They used a PA to boost the vocals. So it's doable
Haha, nice. No big deal, then! I'll just run out and duplicate that setup
Not to hijack this thread too far, but you could use the recorder and garageband to make a multitrack recording. Set up the recorder to track the drums, set up your tempo in garageband and have your drummer play to the click. Move your drum track from the recorder into garageband. Set up your bass player and do the same thing. Line up each track as you import it. You may want to have each person click off four beats before they start to help with this. Repeat for each member of the band. Eventually you'll have all the individual tracks in garageband and you can mix, master, and export your final mix. If this seems like too much, you can try it in groups as well - bass and drums, guitar and omnichord, vocals, etc.
