Audio Interface Suggestion for AU Plugin Heavy Productions


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

For some background, I've been away from producing for quite some time and I'm looking to get back into it. I make primarily electronic music ranging from house to trance to ambient. Although I used to have some external modules, I'm looking to keep my new setup quite simple this time around

 

Although I haven't purchased a computer yet, I'm looking at either a Mac Mini 2.6ghz quad-core i7 w/ 16gb ram, running two SSD's or previous gen. iMac 2.8ghz quad-core i7 w/ 16 gb ram running one SSD & one HDD. Both are pretty close in terms of specs.

 

I will be primarily using plugins and samples so a a ton of input and outputs will probably not be necessary. I guess I will mainly be looking to do "in-the-box" productions. Some units I have been looking at are, the Motu Ultralite Mk3, Motu Track 16, Apogee Duet 2, RME Babyface which is the $400-700 range. I would appreciate some input into any of these units or if anyone has other suggestions around this range. Thank you!

So I've settled on a Mac Mini 2.6ghz quad-core i7 w/ 16 gb ram.

 

I will only need the ability to output to studio monitors and/or a mixer. Perhaps a few inputs for a hardware synth and midi. I would greatly appreciate any input.
