Audio Interface for non-recording producers?!?
Yes this is my first post, i've been reading the gearslutz forum for years now.
And even made use of some mastering services from board members.
I have been searching the web (and especially gearslutz) for an answer to my question.
I used to have the focusrite saffire pro 40. Now i'm looking into getting a new interface,
i'm looking at something like the focusrite 56 or avid mbox pro.
Now these are pretty good for recording, but being a "producer" who mainly uses midi
instruments i will not be using the inputs much. And most reviews
discuss just these (important) features.
To make a long story short, to avoid overkill i'd like to know if i even
need one of these "big" audiointerfaces, or could i get the same output
quality from something like the mbox (mini) or akai eie pro?
My budget for an audiointerface would be around 800euro's, but if i can
save some cash and spend it on some other gear, why not.
