1st Audio Interface
Just got a new pc. It just happens that it has 2x firewire slots. So thinking about getting an interface so I can start recording again.
Checking for firewire interfaces (since I already have it why not use it :shrug: )
I am a bit confused. Are the price differences justified by features or cause of brand? I already own a SM57 LC and can also record with line-out from my preamp. Which one would you choose to record up to 2-3 instruments at once + vocals (for hard rock - heavy metal stuff) ???
None of those if you plan to do 2-3 instruments + vocals at the same time mainly because most of those don't support enough inputs.
You want something like this: http://www.thomann.de/gr/focusrite_saffire_pro_40.htm
8 built in preamps which means you can do a lot with it (including micing a full drumkit) as well as the ability to ADAT in another Pro 40 for up to 16 inputs.
As for the price difference, it comes down to features & recording quality. The MOTU Ultralite has a ton of built in DSP effects (processed in that unit), a lot higher quality preamps & such that the TC Electronic interfaces don't have. They all seem to have the same sample rate (except the Pro 24) but honestly, unless you're planning on recording a professional album with lots of high end gear to back it, you aren't going to need more than the 96khz sample rate the Focusrite Pro 40 has.
Buy a line 6 UX2...
Best thing I have ever bought AND it runs through USB...
Hard to believe but its awesome. I never thought I'd say that about a line 6 product...
No, the UX2 is probably the furthest thing from the best. Also, you didn't read his post, he plans to record 2-3 + Vocals at the same time. The UX2 has only 2 inputs.
