I guess by the time you've done all that you may as well stick a couple of mic-pres in, call it a two-channel AI, and save yourself another manufacturing line.ef37a wrote:Someone mentioned an "add on" unit or docking station?
Now, I apologise for dragging the thread down to my (whale ****) level but I am always surprised that no one has brought out a better version of the Behringer UCA202/222?
For converting the output of a desk at a live show (but watch the levels, it is a neg ten device) and especially for dubbing cassette or vinyl it is a very handy and cheap box. They also do not seem to suffer from the "USB whine" so common in 16bit USB mixers? As they go they get a noise floor around -83dBfs.
A better mousetrap. 24 bits of course and a selection of sampling Fs. Gain controls and a symmetrical (i.e. "proper") balanced out of +24dBu and of course a noise floor well below -100dBfs. I think all that could be done for well under £100 and the box still be USB bus powered.
G4M are knocking these out at £60 after all: https://www.gear4music.com/Recording-an ... rface/25KZ
