    Hello. Just got my sm57 and ready to buy a half decent interface. Pretty simple question.. what is better.. by how much.. why? The m audio seems to go for cheaper.. but maybe this is for a reason?! Thanks in advanced!! 8)

    I think the 410 is on it's way out. It seems to be less than reliable. For not much more, the firebox or for that matter and FP10 is solid unit.

    E-mu 0404 USB audio interface

    How about this? for the price.. I honestly would be happy with a cheap m-audio mobile interface at the moment.. then spend some money on a good one later. Does anyone know if this one is any better?

    I really don't like the FW410. I don't like the sound of the converters and I don't like the preamps in any way. I only own it to run PT.

    I personally don't care for the USB interfaces but folks seem to like the EMU 0404. You can do a search here at RO or over at Gearslutz and get some general feedback on that one in particular.
