Choosing a USB interface

Posted on

I need a USB audio interface for my basic home studio. I've a Windows laptop, a Behringer 1002USB desk and a couple of keyboards and an electric guitar (running through a multiFX). I want to build up tracks. The desk itself doesn't allow me to monitor both the laptop output (previous recording tracks) and live input together, so I need an interface.

The Behringer UMC202HD looks fine, around £56. It comes with a basic DAW too. Would this be adequate and let me monitor live & recorded tracks together? This is only a hobby project, I don't have a lot of money to spend.

I am not sure exactly how you have this stuff set up, but that new interface you mentioned sounds pretty good.

I am curious though, if you are just recording yourself, and wanting to listen to tracks back and play over it again, why do you even need a desk in the chain?

Listen to the outs of your computer, and just use the desk to go into the computer, so it'll come out the outs as well...if that makes sense.
