>>47662791 I own the UR-22, it's alright I guess, only use it for speakers, headphones and my midi keyboard. It does the job, but every few months it refuses to work and I'll have to fuck around with the usb cables until it magically works again, could be windows though (most likely).
>>47663152 Yeah, I think there are a lot of benefits towards having a small to mid (~20 Rack Unit) home server rack in any anon's room.
1. Rack-mount battery backup UPS are larger and more centralized. I got two of these in my rack feeding all my equipment, my computer, game systems, everything. http://www.cyberpowersystems.com/products/ups-systems/pfc-sinewave-series/OR1500PFCRT2U.html
2. You can integrate server grade rack-mount switches and manage vlans, etc.
3. You can put a rack-mount PC and use Microsoft's HyperV Manager to create virtual servers which you can remote desktop into to use for various services, whether as an SMTP (e-mail) server, a Ventrilo/Mumble/Teamspeak server, a Minecraft server, and lots more stuff. And you don't have to have a huge ass industrial PC to do those small tasks.
4. I put my A/V receiver (fits 19" rack shelves) which my PC directs sound to to get to actual home theater quality speakers. My TV is connected to this, too, so I can watch anime from my bed using the same home theater speakers I use when playing games or listening to music. Game consoles and such are connected to this, too. I can change video input to the TV with a remote.
5. You can lock your valuable electronics into the A/V rack and it's not going anywhere. It's anti-theft, even if someone breaks into the house.
6. You get to learn valuable skills which will look good to employers. You manage your own rack at home, cables, equipment, everything.
7. Declutters your desk and puts all your stuff into a well sized enclosure.
>>47663281 Don't. Just use an AT2020 which is usb-based. Network protocols compress audio streams a lot, so using better mics won't make you sound much better in Skype, TF2, CS:GO, LoL, or whatever. The most improvement you might see would be on a Mumble server, but mostly if you increase the bandwidth on audio streams and you host your own Mumble server for others.
There are severe diminishing returns for going XLR route for gaming. You may in fact shoot yourself in the foot by getting a mic that's so sensitive, people regularly hear and get annoyed by the clacking of your mechanical keyboard.
XLR microphones are more intended for recording music, podcasts, YouTube videos, etc. Not for live compressed audio streams...
In a sense, you can consider the network audio compression used by many of the games you'll play as the ultimate bottleneck, meaning you just won't get better audio quality than the game will allow.
I used to have a beheringer but it sucked balls. Super noisy, blue screened my pc, shit sound, shit overall. Weird since I tend to have a good experience with their products.
Now I have a scarlett 2i2, the tiny one. Since I only record guitar/bass/vocals, I don't need to many inputs, it works with everything, the pre-amps are fucking nice, it's tiny so I can take it with me when I travel, etc.
what do you all use for guitar input/recording? i have a line6 toneport ux1 which is great, i can get it down to about 8ms latency. but if i use it as a usb dac, often it will cut out audio for a few seconds which is annoying. this happens like every ~20 mins.
just wondering if there's something better for $100-200. i mainly use amplitube
>>47664396 I use a scarlett interface. I mic my amp.
For that price just get a decent small interface. If you have an amp with no line out or a mic to record it, just use an emulator for whatever you're using (protools or dunno). If it clips when connected directly to the interface you'll need to get a DI Box, but they are pretty cheap so it's no biggie.
>>47664464 the ux1 has xlr mic input but i prefer the guitar input. you can record a take in amplitube and it saves the dry signal so you can change whatever amp settings you want in the future. i mainly play metal with a modelled 5150.
