how can i connect this to my pc and work on fl studio?. Soundcraft GB8 - 32 Mono, 4 Stereo Live Sound / Recording Console
Asked by: Tayo t.
An audio interface is needed in order to connect the Soundcraft GB8 to a PC set up with FL Studio. There are several options for interfaces. Ultimately, what you choose is dependent on how many audio tracks you would like to record at one time and the connection to the computer. You may consider the MOTU 24Ai as a starting point. The unit connects to a computer through USB 2.0, which provides more than enough bandwidth for the twenty-four analog channels, and when connected through AVB networking, supports hundreds of network channels.
