I am a newbie here! I started electronic music production a couple of months ago using Logic Pro X as my main DAW. After encouraging results, I have decided to invest in a home studio, and the help of experts would be greatly appreciated.
I use a 13-inch Macbook Pro I bought in August 2014 with the following specs: 2.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5; Turbo Boost up to 3.3GHz 8GB 1600MHz memory; 512GB PCIe-based flash storage.
I purchased a Roland TR-8 Drum machine in November (for Live mix as well as production) and I would like to invest in some gear:
- Novation Impulse 49 keyboard
- A pair of KRK RP5 monitors
- An audio interface
As I am pretty new in that world, I do not know what interface to buy to be able to connect both my keyboard and my TR-8 to my Macbook Pro + my monitors.
So far, I have selected three potential candidates based on positive feedback and given my tight budget (around 300$/500$ tops).
- Focusrite Scarlett 6i6
- Focusrite Saffire Pro 24
- Steinberg UR44
- Motu Audio Express
Can anyone recommend me one of these interfaces based on his/her personal experience?
