A short briefing of my current situation:
i already have an interface in my so called studio, a MOTU 828 mk3 hybrid, mounted in a rack and a HEAT, also mounted on my rack
so everything from the the VLZ4 or the Elektrons, Moog etc. can be routed in and through it for further processing
my ‘big’ synths like the Waldorf Blofeld or the Korg Radias are at my home and supposed to act as a sound delivery-source for the Elektrons (more the OT than the AR) with noises, sound-bubbles, pads, atmospheres and so on … since i want to keep it simple in my studio and of course also very simple at my home I’m looking for a rather simple, not too expensive but average to good sounding (in terms of AD-converting) interface with two inputs and USB2 and Midi I/O.
i did some research on the surface and was hooked on Focusrite, Audient, Presonus, Roland - even M-Audio … but not RME, UA, other higher-end or again MOTU
of course in the lower price-segment i cannot expect the clearest sound but as everything is mangled then thru a chain of equipment from the OT (f.ex. the HEAT), nobody could hear the difference - I am sure … just for recording into my laptop at home
please advise me
