    I am setting up a home studio and am not sure of a good interface to use between my instruments and my computer. I will be getting a new home desktop PC just for the studio at a later date and am not worried about that yet. I want a nice interface that can help me by remembering setting of all types for the tracks I work on, etc. To tell you the truth I don't know what I need that's why I'm here.

    I don't own any separate or stand-alone preamps. My GT-10B has built in preamps as well as my Cyber Twin SE. Not sure on my ins and outs yet. I don't have a mixer yet but from what I understand if I get the M-Audio ProjectMix I/O I wont need one. I would like to be able to mix on the fly with the use of real faders (not completely necessary but would like that) but will probably do most mixing in post. These are the things I'm looking at and I'm sure most hardware will work but I'm looking for specifics and preferred recommendations, as well as things I haven't considered. I'm more of a musician than an engineer.

    I have looked at the M-Audio ProjectMix I/O with it's motorized faders (love that) and the M-Audio Fast Track Ultra 8R USB with it's built in effects and I really don't know what's out there, so I come here humbly for your help :smile: Suggestions?

    The current music gear I have that has interfacing potential:
    Yamaha KX88 Midi Controller
    Fender Cyber Twin SE Guitar Amp
    Boss GT-10B Bass Processor
    Roland V-Drums TD-9

    I will probably be using Cubase.

    No one can really advise you until you come up with your minimum and maximum track counts. Lot's of folks will jump in at that point. There are not a ton of control surfaces that are also mixers....or mixers that are also control surfaces; so that sort of limits the field right off. At least with what you will get recommendations for. No one here will recommend anything by the Behr so no worries there.
