You shouldn't need a USB interface if you've already got a mixer...?


you do if you want decent audio quality. computers generally have really crappy A/D converters built in.

What I had understood was that USB interfaces were essentially external sound cards with inputs. So I suppose in combination with a mixer this makes sense.

Exactly, the importance of the interface is that it will likely be miles better for recording than the standard onboard soundcard.

a good recording soundcard, and most of them come in the form of interfaces. and he has a good recording card, he would have bought it himself and wouldn't be asking about interfaces.

Do they also work as preamps for recording vinyl? I've been wanting to record some old records of my father's so we can sell them.

EDIT: Wow, it comes with Cubase as well. (right now I'm using Logic, but you can never have too many DAWs, I suppose)

mine doesn't have line level inputs, and that's what you would want for recording vinyl.
