Here goes for my monthly thread.
I've been strumming guitars for half my life now, actually a little more, but haven't plugged my guitar into my computer since Win98. And as you might recall, things worked differently back then.
I am now really interested in learning how to plug my plank into my pc and record shit (using maybe audacity as I remember not being smart enough for cubase, back in the day).
Naturally, I have read around a bit, especially here on MG but have a bit of a dilemma.
To make a short-gone-long story short, I have the choice between the two following interfaces, for the same price, both in mint condition apparently, and don't know which way to go:
- M-Audio Fast Track Review & Rating | PCMag.com (m-audio fast track);
- TERRATEC - Products - Sound - External (USB) - TerraTec DMX 6Fire USB
The terratec looks like a good option because I could, if need be, use it for a wide array of purposes, whereas the m-audio looks more like a one trick horse. But that might not be a bad thing.
--> What is a man to do?
I've never even heard of Terratec. I'd lean towards M-Audio simply because it's a very well-established, reputable brand, and I've had good luck with their interfaces I've owned in the past (though I'm learning they have a reputation for taking their time with driver updates, haha)
