Shortlist of audio interfaces of which I will select one

published Feb 20, 2019 05:55   by admin ( last modified Feb 21, 2019 04:39 )

I currently have a 16-bit Behringer Xenyx 302USB, and I'd like to upgrade to 24 bit to get some more room under 0dB. I'd also lke to try out a large diaphragm condenser mic so I need an XLR, and I'd like to keep the ability to have a powered mic input for 3.5mm. Actually the Xenyx I have has a 12V XLR which is enough for the mic I'm looking at, so maybe better to start in the mic end and arrive at the interface end later.

I'd also like to have a recorder in it, since Android phones have problems with USB and Bluetooth has problems with, well, the Bluetooth standard which has no capability for good mic audio (maxes out at 16KHz sampling rate).

And since I prefer to do everything in post, more than 3 channels into the computer would be nice.
