Hi. I posted a topic about a recording interface & laptop and it got removed and relocated. Sorry if it seemed in the wrong place, I felt that since the setup required an interface it might warrant being at recording gear...so to rectify, I've divided the post up. I've put the recording interface question here in pro audio gear, as that's what it is, an ive seen similar Q's in this section. "I need a two mic pre in interface that runs off USB or firewire (no xternal power). I was thinking presonus firebox, but it need power. so something similar, but able to be powered by the laptop. pref: two mic ins and two line ins..but open to anything at this stage. also considered the MOTU traveler, but too pricey and to many I/O at this stage." Many thanks for any help. Greatly appreciated.
