I just joined this site and impressed with all of the suggestions in the forums.
I am looking for an interface to use with the softstep foot controller, my mac and potentially ableton (but looking into other options as well). I have been reading some of the forums and it sounds like the MOTU might be the one to look into. Potentially something under 300$ if possible.
I will be using everything to create live and improvised acoustic cello loops with voice. Not sure if that bit makes a difference. I am also s bit of a nube when it comes to interfaces and software, so reading about everything can be a bit overwhelming, but excited to no longer be limited by my equipment, and let the equipment limit me...which will inevitably force me to learn more.
