    Hi,

    I'm actually using a Presonus Firepod in a studio...love it. But recently wish to setup a home-studio in my small bed room...Yes, what you paid is what you got! But ,i'm sure there is something affortable audio interface and producing good sound for a home studio use...might need your recommendation.

    ~ Using for Instrument and Vocal Recording
    ~ 2-4 input
    ~ Firewire (c'ld get another piece in the future for link-up to add on the input channel)
    ~ Budget-Open for the one fit the needs
    ~ Logic on Mac

    Thanks for helps...

    Well you could stick with Presonus either a used Firebox which can be daisy chained for more channels is firewire and is either 4 or 6 input can't recall offhand. there was a previous version of this interface as well that was a nice interface you might find on fleabay for about 150. Also if you want something more streamlined Audiobox USB. There are certainly other interfaces on the market in these price ranges but these are pretty good products IMO.

    Question again: ~ do you think Firewire is better than USB ?

    Onyx are great mixers, not inexpensive but great value, do you need a mixer though? Are you doing live production? I thought you were just looking for a couple of channels. Firewire is preferred by most if you are recording more than four channels. 1-4 USB is fine, IMO.

    Hi,

    For Home-Studio use.
    USB Mixer for example--http://www.behringer.com/EN/Products/X1204USB.aspx & Samson - Zoom - R16 or MultiMix 8 USB 2.0 Integrated USB 2.0 audio interface and mixer
    Will the above USB Mixer recording in Multitrack? What i informed is USB will only possible to recorded in a Stereo Track?!
    So, at last, i found this online which is highly recommended from users and forumers... Phonic Helix Board 12 MkII
    Still struggling with the Multitrack issue on USB and the latency issue while monitoring.
    Need your helps, friend! Thanks with appreciate! ;)
