Whats the difference between a mixer and an interface. Say I need two or three XLR inputs and atleast one 1/4 in input. Now heres my question, waht is the purpose of a mixer compared to an interface. Can a mixer be used just plugged directly into a computer and used with the provided software and start recording?
mixers can but they can't like instead of 1251212x channels you get 1...mono LOL. you can get as many channels as your interface will allow you via adat or anything. else. but that gets pricey past 8 channels
