Audio Interfaces

Last Updated on October 28, 2020 by Ryan Harrell

The audio interface is probably the most important piece of hardware in a modern studio.

After all, this is the piece of hardware that connects the analog, physical world with the digital world inside your computer. Without an audio interface, you’ll have a tough time plugging in a mic, MIDI keyboard, or guitar into your computer.

Connectivity is just one aspect of audio interfaces; you also need them to reduce your latency. While a number of things affect latency – including your computer’s specs – the audio interface has the biggest impact.

A good audio interface also has high quality mic preamps and robust signal processing to ensure that your recordings are the highest possible quality. The difference between a cheap $100 interface and a studio-grade $1000 interface is immense.
