Recommended Posts

ok so im looking for an interface that is up to 200$. usb or firewire, atleast 2 mic/instrument inputs, and with preamps on both inputs (preamps are good right...). any suggestions?

 

oh and does anyone have experience with the E-MU 0404 usb interface.. and would i just use both channel inputs on say the 0404 for example to get stereo recordings ? or should the interface have r/l dedicated inputs ?.. been awhile since ive been on here great seeing you guys again

I am in the market for the same item and have been told the USB can cause latency problems. I have no experience to go on.

the usb2 speck IIRC supports data trnsfer rates up 400Mbits/sec... so in and of itself should not cause any latency issues... the caveate as i understand it is when using multiple usb devices concurrently...

i'm on a 1884 and your should be similar with the routing... assuming your running stereo you should have 2 more analog outs right??? configure them as your sends and return them to unused line ins... what software are you using???? :wave::wave::wave:

maxxx, you may try the PreSonus Inspire - 4 simultaneous inputs (2 XLR, 2 1/4"), phono inputs (with RIAA filter), Cubase LE, bunch of loops, blah, blah, blah. You can also chain 4 of them together for 16 simultaneous inputs - it's a pretty sweet deal for $199 street price.
