After having recorded on the VS-1880 for the last umpteen years, I've finally decided to make the switch to DAW. I've decided to go with Pro Tools but am confused on how to connect to the computer/interface for multiple-track simultaneous recording.
I would like to be able to run up to 4 mics to 4 different tracks for live recording, for which I have 2 external mic pre's, each with 2 TRS (or XLR) in/out. I'm confused to what kind of interface I need, because I really don't need an interface with built in pre's/mic inputs. But I'm having a hard time finding anything that looks like what (I think) I need - 4 TRS inputs.
Also a little curious how Pro Tools would accomplish this (ie assigning each track to the corresponding input)
Can someone help out a total newb?
