Although it's technically possible to work in a DAW with the computer's built-in audio inputs and outputs, a dedicated audio interface is a must-have for any serious audio production. Better sound quality, more audio inputs and outputs, and low latency monitoring, are just some of the benefits an audio interface can bring to your studio. However, choosing the right interface for your specific needs can be a daunting task. This is why we asked audio expert Joe Albano to create this course where he covers everything you need to consider when choosing your next audio interface.

Joe starts the course by explaining the differences between the various versions of USB and Thunderbolt as well as the type connections. You learn about class-compliant devices, drivers, and why you need to be aware of possible compatibility issues with your operating system. Next, Joe covers AD/DA converters, the different analog I/O configurations available as well as optional features like ADAT, S/PDIF, MIDI connections and expandability options. You also learn about mic preamps, monitoring options, DSP processing, and important points to consider when purchasing an audio interface for various studio setups.

So sit back and join audio expert Joe Albano as he covers the "ins and outs" of audio interfaces!
