Ight, Ive leared what I need to setup my DAW however, I need some advice on what to buy for my budget.
I need a firewire interface that can handle a digital piano, guitar and mic for less than 300. I have looked at the INSPIRE and some Korg and M-Audio and they all seem relitivley decent but then again I really dont know.
Also I want to use some MIDI somewhere in there, do I need to get a seperate MIDI interface to feed my digital piano into my CPU? I am unclear on how this works?
any help is appreciated.
alot of audio interfaces have midi capabilities as well but you could get a separate interface if the audio one you want doesnt have it.
there are a few of interfaces that do what you say- but do you want the guitar piano and mic used simultaeneously? or tracked separately?
anyway- try the Edirol FA66, M-audio FW410, and maybe the Focusrite saffire if you sehll out $100 more.
i have no experience with any of these but have only heard good things about the Focusrite
and do you already have software? if not these all come bundled with some im sure.
