Hello to all,
I need your help on clarifying some aspects of a setup I'm trying to build mostly for recording purposes.
Initially I as planning on buying an audio interface for multitrack recording. Something like the Alesis IO|14 (I'll give some examples just for better understanding). But then I come across this mixers with Firewire interface that can send each mixer channel independently to the computer (something like the Alesis Multimix 8 FW).
This got me confused in understanding which one suits my needs. I want mainly to do recording at my home studio but if I could join also the possibility of having a mixer to use for rehearsal and playing live, that would be great. But am I missing something here? Is this so linear? What will I have with just the audio interface that I don't with the mixer and vice-versa? What practical examples can you give me of the differences?
Thank you very much in advance.
