im on the lowest of low budgets. Ive been scoping out studio monitors for a while, and now im finding out that i also need to purchase an audio interface. i was only trying to spend like $200-$250, but when i went to guitar center today, the dude told me that decent monitors are gonna be about $300, and a tascam audio interface is gonna run another $150 at least.
but would something like a "Tascam Lexicon Alpha Desktop Recording Studio" suffice?
(i tried to post the link but the site wont let me)
its the cheapest audio interface i could find. Obviously for professionals, something like this isnt gonna cut it. But for my home studio hobbies, can i get by with this? How much of a difference does a nicer one make?
