I was planning to get a usb interface so I could record someone on location with a laptop (I currently own a dual core pentium 2.0, with 2gb ram and a 5400 hard disk, I know it's not nearly what's required for heavy-duty performance, but I was hoping it could at least play back a reference track and record in it with the interface). I recently caught sight of the m-audio fast track mk ii and I have to say it looks really impressive with the phantom power and the xlr input for it. it really seems to be a good choice also for the future since I had in mind, maybe later on and with a different computer, to play live with and either use a vst or simply play back audio files and fxs through it. so, the question is... is this a good choice of an interface? could I use it further down the road with a usb keyboard plugged to a usb port in the laptop and the fast track in another one? (is that the way it would work?) what about performance and recording? would I get good results in the long term with it? cheers!!
