Referring back to Guitarforme on june 18th. I don't understand the need for the DI box, why a 1/4 to XLR cable would not work?
How would I use this set up with the looptimus controller since my USB port would be taken up by sending it to the audio interface ?? Would I just get a USB hub with one USB cord going to the interface and the other going to the controller?
This is super expensive for all that hardware... is there no other alternative? We're using the PRIME app now for mixing but for many reasons (particularly individual monitor levels) we want to go to using Ableton Live to mix in multiple channels, but I don't think I can justify the price tag.
Can I use the headphone out from the interface for my in ear monitors and use one of the inputs on the interface for my mix from the monitor board?
Thanks for info! Have a question. What would be better for live performance in church?: FOCUSRITE Saffire PRO 24 DSP (6 Outputs, thunderbolt connection and DSP processor), or Presonus Audiobox 1818VSL?
A DI does more than simply convert unbalanced to balanced. You're not likely to blow anything up with modern equipment, but long term the wear and tear on your console and equipment is not good. Also - if you have a poorly shielded snake, you could experience bleed into other channels sending a line-level signal alongside mic-level signals.
One question maybe I'm missing it, Aren't most D/A outputs balanced? Why would you need a DI? Wouldn't you just need a TRS to XLR?
@bobby that is what I do, works great!
