rather than create a new thread i figured Id hop on this one with my question, any input and insight is appreciated.
Im trying to decide between the Presonus Audiobox 44VSL (4 mic/line inputs) vs. the Scarlett 816 (2 mic/line) + 2 1/4" line.
As far as the price goes between them, its not a deciding factor. Heres what is:
-Preamp/sound quality and noise level.
-Latency while monitoring my tracks in-DAW with software effects added to them. With my cheap Lexicon Alpha using Reason 6 I was able to get a very fast latency that was ALMOST undetectable while applying live FX to a track.
I hear the Presonus has a DSP, but the Scarlett has better preamps? Is that correct? If so what effect would that have on my latency while monitoring through my software with FX applied?
Also, I want the 4 mic inputs so I can get a decent drum recording, however if the audio box sucks, I wont waste my money on it, Id rather have a solid performing audio box with less inputs.
And my computer can handle anything. So thoughts anyone?
Thanks in advance!
