Hello! I'm sorry if these seem like horrible questions: 1) I'm going to start recording music and I think I have some idea of a proper chain: Source -> Instrument(s) -> Mixer -> Interface -> PC Is this correct? 2) I'll ask after I get an answer to 1 :] To give a little bit of information: I'm looking to record acoustic guitar and vocals, but want to leave some flexibility in case I decide to add a drum machine or something in the future. I have a Behringer PMP2000 Mixer and that's about it. I'm in the market for an interface and microphones now. I'm looking for a USB or Firewire interface because I'm running on a laptop for the time being. Am I correct in thinking I need a very minimal amount of inputs on the interface because I have a mixer and can just put everything into that? I kinda got carried away and rambled a bit in this post, but hopefully I covered almost everything. Thank you for your time and any replies I receive!
