There’s a lot of confusion in my head about the proper way to use a4 as an audiointerface.
At the moment I have usb audio interface, which is pretty good, but it doesn’t support ASIO. A also have pair of jbl lsr 305 connected to this interface via trs-rca cables. Audio sometimes sounds weird (detuned) when i play from usb midi keyboard. So I assume there’s too much things are going on to handle.
So I’m thinking of making simple and quick configuration where my a4 will be the center of it all. I’ve already connected my Midi keyboard directly to a4 via midi cable. So the next steps should be connecting a4 to my speakers. That’s where I stopped. My monitors have both balanced XLR and ¼” TRS Inputs. A4 has only TRS outs. Are there any benefits of using TRS to XLR cables or should I just use TRS to TRS? And also. Could A4 be used as an stereo audiointerface while I’m outside the DAW. Like for music listening? How good it is comparing to modern budget interfaces like Scarlets 2/4 series?
Or maybe there’s a way to send audio via USB only like Overbridge does for listening music? Is it possible? So many questions, i know.
