Re: Focusrite Scarlett 2i2. How to be truly mobile.

What is the best order to connect and disconnect the interface? Plug everything in and then to iPad and the power it? Reverse order to disconnect? Turn off IPad? Thanks I had not been online for a while. I think it is best to have everything powered up before connecting the hub to the iPad. And whi...

Re: Another method: USB Powered? Want to be mobile? No probl

and...the ipad is powered too? LOL. No. As far as I know, you cant power your iOS device with CCK methods. Only with some MFI devices. But you could try with a larger ampere power supply. I have not tried it because I don't have one. A 5V 3,5A at least. But I cant take resposibility if your burn so...

I'm interested on how the PreAmps sound. Would you have an original microphone recording that you could share? with some seconds of silence at Maximum and maybe near Maximum gain?

Re: Behringer Uphoria 404

Did you get this interface to work well?
Is it Auria compatible?
And would you know how many decibels you can crank up the MIC preamps?

I can't find the specs of the microphone preamps. Do you know the specs??? I mean, do you know how many decibels can you crank up the microphone inputs??? 50, 60, 70, 80 decibels???

Re: Focusrite 2i2 ipad connection

Try one of these two methods. No powered USB hub needed. I'm sure you have everything somewhere in your accesories except maybe the cables I recommend. Hopes it helps. http://auriaapp.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=12622 http://auriaapp.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=11150 The method from the first ...

Re: Is there a way to know if one ADC is better than another

So, in the name of science and in paper, which one of these two consumer products would offer a better Analog to Digital performance: - Sonoma Wireworks Guitarjack 2 with the AKM 4556VT chip. http://www.akm.com/akm/en/product/datasheet1/?partno=AK4556VT Documentation states: 24-bit ADC, 24-bit DAC ....

Re: headphone port default problem

Make sure the headphone has a normal stereo 3 pole plug. And not a 4 pole headset with microphone plug. Other than that, no clue.

Re: Is there a way to know if one ADC is better than another

Yes. But does it boil down to: "I like the resulting recording from this ADC more than the other"? Or, are there tests that one could do to the resulting recording to define that one ADC is better than another. I have read in forums that some ADC at 44.1kHz,16bit might be better than others at 96kHz...

Is there a way to know if one ADC is better than another?

Appart from the specs,

Is there a practical way to decide if one Analog to Digital Converter is better than another?

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 2i2. How to be truly mobile.

I wonder why the hub is needed? Is the iPad powered as well? I assume you could use this rig with a car charger or wall charger if you wanted. The point of my post is to let everyone know that you don't need to be tied to an electrical wall socket. If your Audio Interface is USB powered and your po...

Does your interface deliver true 24bit samples? Verify it.

Want to verify that your interface delivers true 24bit samples? I don't know if specific software exists for this. I myself would like to know if there is an easier way to do this. But until someone tells me if such software exists, this is how you do it with Goldwave -the non registered trial versi...
