Why so many inputs and outputs for such a small room? Could be real useful if you decide to do any drum mic stuff I guess. Seems like overkill for general production though.

I made a mistake, it's an 18i8.

I'm future proofing. Also, I have more stuff than just my mic and piano, it's at parent's home. I didn't count it in the list because it's not really essential, but I do have it. Also, most of the ins are only available through buying an additional extension, so the actual ins I have available are closer to the amount of gear I have.

Still this. *sigh*

At least you're not a victim of gear lust. That's super dumb that you have to pay to get more i/o out of a peice of pricey gear neblix. In app purchases for gear I guess haha

Sometimes having a lot of inputs is nice when you have a lot of gear. That way you can keep various things plugged in at the same time and just get working when the mood strikes you. I have a total of 9 input channels right now and a chunk of those are taken up by outboard synths. I actually used to have more i/o but I got ride of an 8 channel strip of preamps (light pipe) that I didn't really need.

Well, it's not really the same. It's a port designed to hold that kind of bandwidth, so the total input capability isn't listed dishonestly.

In order to actually use that port, though, I need to have a device that connects to it like that, and they just happen to sell such multi-in rack devices. It's kinda like saying "That sucks that you have to buy another graphics card to SLI them". Well... yes, but if that's what you want, the capability is there.

As long as it's economical to have to tack on more cash to an interface that's already pricey

It's actually fairly typical with a lot of interfaces. I have a Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 which has a total of 18 input channels. 10 of those channels are digital and require a separate piece of gear to use. 8 via ADAT and 2 via S/PDIF. These digital inputs are very common on a lot of interfaces including the Focusrite Scarlett 18i20. Right now I'm using the S/PDIF input for my ART Voice Channel.

Good old HD 201's they never let me down in the 6+ years I had them. But after switching to Technics RP-DJ 1200's it's hard to go back :P

No, but that's because I don't use Ableton. :tomatoface:

I've never gotten it to work the same way as my Launchpad Minis in FL, though. Not sure what I'm doing wrong and don't feel the need to figure it all out just right now.

Moving into new space in 3 months, then buying actual speakers, and then, yes, pics... :sleepdepriv:

We got some progress! When I get a new desk, then I'll have room for dual monitor set-up and some nice studio speakers.
