I use my USB audio interface to get everything to come out my monitors.
With my growing collection of hardware (A4, Machinedrum, Heat and Octatrack) I was thinking about getting a mixer. I think the reasoning being that I may want to use this setup outside of Ableton.
Again . . . This is a step into the unknown. The MD was added just over a year ago and the rest of the hardware has followed on its heels. Due to this, I am gradually learning more about hardware setups.
So . . . If I were to get a mixer:
- What would the benefits be over my 8 input 8 out USB interface.
- What would be a good starting place?
Thanks for any ideas.
