Yes, you need to pad it down. This recorder is likely to accept around a -50 Db and the other sources you mentioned are probably +4 Db. Using a limiter and compressors will result in distortion as your inputs exceed the range those can handle. I would use about a 40 Db pad trial to start. That is a voltage ratio of 1:100. Make yourself a voltage divider with say a 100K and a 1K putting the inout across the series combination and taking the out to the recorder across the 1K.
How multitrack recording works is assigning each recording to a different track. A way around this is to record the vocals to track one, then your harmony to track two. Save that as a single recording, or mixdown, then open that saved mixdown to track one. You may need to be connected to a computer to do this.
I use the same technique when using Cool Edit Pro (outdated, yes, but I've been using it for 4 years, and I know most of the ins and outs), especially on the guitar tracks, where for studio sound, you've gotta use 4 total tracks. Putting two tracks together frees up your processor, and uses less in the way of effects, as well.
For the drums to take effect you have to master the track before converting. The manual explains how to do this. Push "exit" and "utility" at the same time twice, then "play" and "record" (to start the recording of course).
