    Focusrite Vs M-Audio Vs Edirol Vs....

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I need a good Mic preamp, with a good resolution (24bit/96kHz), possibly Firewire.

    I will use it to record with Dynamic and Condenser Mics (SM57 and MCE530) and to connect electric guitar, etc.

    I like the Focusrite Saffire PRO 24, but I know M-Audio and Edirol and other brands produce nice equipment too.

    I need any suggestions about the device to buy...

    Thanks

    Certain electronic instruments allow the input/output of event data that triggers sound. So if you have a synthesizer / electronic drum set / other midi capable device, you can record the electronic equivalent of sheet music, instead of the actual sounds. Or output the sheet music and it does the playing thing for you. Not actually sheet music(midi events), but those MPAA / RIAA entities seem to blur that line of distinction.

    Any more details on what you're trying to do? 24/96kHz is what the converter does, which could have nothing to do with a preamp per say. Are you wanting to multitrack? Record on location, or just at home? Lots of options out there. Many of which can be highly specialized.

    I know what MIDI is, I don't understand what to do with those port on this device. I think it is useful with Midi devices without USB connection... The Saffire routes the MIDI signal to the DAW...

    Basically I want to record acoustic and electric guitar. Just for hobby...

    midi

    if you know what midi is, why are you asking about what to do with the midi ports?

    Because this answer, while 100% correct, doesn't answer his question of how to use the MIDI I/O on a pre-amp:
