Well it depends what you are doing with it?
Do you have any midi devices?
How many audio inputs and outputs do you need?
Are you on Mac or PC?
I'm on a PC
(a Toshiba Satellite A665-S5173 to be exact). I use Push
, a M-Audio Keyrig 49
, and Maschine
occasionally, but usually only two of any of the three at a time. My computer has three USB ports
, but I use one for my wireless mouse. As far as audio in/outs, I'm using a Y-cable
(1/8 in the computer's headphone jack, R/L TRS to a pair of Rokit 5's). So I guess I only need 1 output? I'm honestly not sure. And for inputs, I use a USB mic for when I record
. I do all my sampling digitally (i.e. I download samples; I'm not recording from a turntable or anything) so I don't think I need many inputs. Would the in/outs affect my ability to get sound from more than one application at a time?
And thanks for being so patient.
EDIT: I just realized by MIDI devices, you probably meant devices with ACTUAL midi connectors, in which case, I don't.
