1st Audio Interface

Hello UG!

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 )

http://www.thomann.de/gr/focusrite_..._pro_24_dsp.htm

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.

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.
