Need advice for audio interface and routing for ezdrummer
I want to set up ezdrummer for live use with a set of v-drums. I want to be able to send four or five balanced outputs to the console (kick, snare, toms, overheads, maybe hi hat). If I understand correctly, ezdrummer presents eight channels to the user, so, for example, the overheads will have to mixed down to a single track.
I also want to be able to generate a headphone mix for monitoring (and doesn't affect those other outputs) that adds a separate stereo line-level source (balanced monitor feed).
I'm thinking that the Saffire Pro 24 or the M-Audio Fast Track Ultra will do the job, but I'd like to be sure. Do these fit the bill? Is there something better in the same price range ($300-$400)? Something cheaper that will get the job done, too?
Currently the v-drums are all that's there, so I'm flexible as far as interface, software, etc.
