new studio help



I’m in the process of converting my basement into a home studio. My pc is done but now I need an interface. I was looking at the aardvark Q10 or the Focusrite Octopre. What are the differences between both of these? I noticed the Q10 has midi inputs and the octopre doesn't. What does midi actually do and what do I need to use it? Sorry for so many questions, I’m just starting out. Jeremy

The Q10 is a mic pre/comverter/soundcard package. The Octopre is a 8 channel mic pre /compressor package.
I like the Q10 quite a bit. I have been rcomending it to readers for a while now. Aardvark is anexcellent company with great customer service, all their products are built in the good ol' U.S of A. ... Kurt
