Current Audio Interface


Recommended Posts

Hi

 

What is (are) your current audio interface(s)? What do you think of it? Are you satisfied with it? Are there limitations that you really struggle with?

 

I’ll post up mine a little later

 

Cheers

 

John

Behringer UMC. It is a solid and inexpensive interface.

 

Obviously it can vary depending on the way you record (real instruments, live tracking, in-the-box etc), what are the limitations you come up against for your recording process (if any)?

I use the Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 and have no complaints.

Do you mainly lay down single tracks in a multitrack recording, or work more in the box? Or do you take advantage of multiple inputs for live recordings? Or do you just have a few pieces of outboard gear?

Steinberg UR22 MKII

 

Audio quality is fine, headphone amp is a bit weak. The software looks dated but is functionally not bad. I have trouble getting latency down to where I'd be okay with it.

Mostly laying down single tracks in a mutitrack recoding except for live recordings.  That would be input for vocals, 2 guitars or guitar and bass.

No drums live then? Do you use any percussion?

Any plans for an upgrade or does it do what you need?

 

What about your puter? I only mean as regards latency.

re:  "Mostly laying down single tracks in a multi-track recoding except for live recordings.  That would be input for vocals, 2 guitars or guitar and bass."

 

 

Sorry, that's a confusing response I've given above.   I'm talking about in my studio and the inputs/outputs.   The number of tracks I record at a time varies.  Sometimes one track at a time, 1 guitar, 1 vocal etc.   Sometimes I record multi-tracks at a time (I called that live)  .. example: Vocal and guitar, 2 guitars, guitar and bass, 2 vocals, etc.  

 

Yes, there's drums and percussion on my songs.. but mostly those tracks are Midi generated, sampled, etc.

Well actually, now that I think about it, it's more likely caused by the plugins (virtual instruments and effects) than the interface. It's not the computer, which doesn't even break a sweat. I know some plugins add a large amount of latency (I'm looking at you Ozone!), and I do disable them on the rare occasion I need to do some actual performance stuff but I guess that some of the VI's could also be adding some themselves. Not what I want to hear, but it is the most likely scenario.  For the headphone amp, and actually for the mic preamp too, I would like to upgrade, but I need MIDI I/O and I don't need more than 2 audio ins and outs, so that limits the field somewhat. I'm also not prepared to pay RME prices.
