You could, yeah. I assume you mean like a PA situation? I use my recording rig for low-volume apartment practices. It won't get over the drum kit, but for acoustic/cajon stuff it's very useful....

Ah, yes, let me explain. That's in regards to interfacing with the DAW. It sends 16 individual channels IN to the software, but can only send 4 independent signals OUT back to analog audio (so you...

Nope, all 8 go to separate tracks. Then the other inputs get their own separate tracks as well. Where did you read that only 4 go out to USB? If it's from my post, that's because I only had four mics...

Oh...soooo have you ever used one? Or are you comparing it to your experience with the 1202VLZ?

If you treat your room and spend lots of time with RP5s, then you'll be better off than brand new fancy monitors in an untreated room for sure.

Look, I know you love that interface, and people give you crap about it around here, but I've left the topic alone. Spending $1000 for two blackbirds just to get 16 inputs is a colossal waste of...

Good! If it runs core audio, then you should have less problems. Worst case, you buy the interface and it doesn't work, so you return it and get something similar that will work.

Do you have a budget? That does make a difference. If it's below $75, then you'll want Reaper.

Honestly, a proper preamp/converter (interface) with a 2020 should blow an iphone mic out of the water. No, it's not the world's best mic, but it blows away an iphone. Come on, dude.
