I’m trying to decide how to expand my setup and am curious about what others think. Here what I have:
MPC One (stereo, I just monitor the machine. I bounce tracks to an SD card to mix in Studio One)
Eurorack percussion (mono)
Analog Drive (mono)
My interface is a Roland Rubix 44 (4 inputs)
I have the MPC One and the modular going into the interface and the Analog Drive taking up the last input as an effect send from Studio One. I’m controlling all the hardware and software with the MPC via midi and USB. My issue is recording the AS-1 and the iPad. Currently I’m just plugging and unplugging them into the MPC and bouncing the audio to my computer when I mix. I’m not really liking this and would rather just record directly into Studio One and only bounce the stuff I’ve made on the MPC. Basically I need 2 more stereo inputs than I have. What would you do? Get a mixer to go between all the hardware and the stereo input of the interface currently used by the MPC? Should I just get a bigger interface like a K-Mix or something?
