Hello fellow musicians.
I’ve been thinking about for a long time to upgrade my old Soundblaster X-Fi Titanium HD to something better. My current Soundblaster has ASIO-support so I don’t have any latency issues and it has pretty nice sound quality, but one of the biggest reasons is that I cannot adjust the sound volume if I connect my monitor speakers directly to the soundcard. Also, I’ve noticed it takes lots of static interference for some reason from the computer (that buzz, whining noise)
So the question is:
Is UR12 worth the upgrage? How is the sound quality for example for music listening? Since I really don’t want to go backwards. This soundblaster cost me over 200 euros when i bought it and it is supposed to have very good “specs”.
I have BeyerDynamics DT880 250ohm headset, and I need audio interface with RCA outputs since my monitor cables are RCA-XLR. Can UR12 run those headphones? I think it should since even my Soundblaster can run them quite nicely.
Or should I rather get UR22 and switch to 6,3mm(1/4")-XLR cables for better sound quality? Does it have any benefit compared to RCA-XLR cable?
I also checked out some Focusrite Scarlett interfaces, I like the design better, but I was thinking about compability since I think UR-series support cubase better than other manufacturers.
