The Behringer seems to have more low-mids in the output than the Profire 2626 did. It's a little off-putting to my ears. I was very accustomed to the old sound. I'm hesitant to call the Behringer muddy in comparison, but it might be.
1. Is it common for different output devices to have different frequency profiles? It sort of makes sense, but I didn't expect that.
I plan to retire my old hardware and move to a newer system with Win10, newest Cakewalk (while it still runs), also migrate to a new DAW over time (maybe Cubase). The new system will most likely NOT have Firewire, so I'll need a new audio interface.
I want this: 8 inputs XLR/line with an affordable path to expand to 16. Needs to be USB 2 or 3. I assume USB 3 will be too expensive.
There's a switch in the back that says 48v phantom power. When I switch it on, the microphone does work. Records like crap, though. It's like recording through a cloud.
My question is, does it have phantom power? My mic does then on when the switch is switched on.
Picked up an M-Audio axiom 88 yesterday and I'm in love with it. The hammer actions keys feel amazing. They are so close to the feel of my actual piano. The pads aren't amazing but they do what you need them too. But the biggest perk is being able to control your daw with the faders and knobs on the Axiom, it really had helped with work flow.
The Omni IO went crap, a couple weeks ago, and I just replaced it with a Focusrite Saffire Pro 14.
I did some recording (AudioTechnica AT4033SE), on the new Saffire, and I had to crank the pre-amp up a lot higher than I did on the Omni.
Given the same start and end points, I would keep the Omni at around 10:00 and the Saffire had to be at around 2:00.
Is there a reason for this?
