I am currently looking into a project but there's one limitation that I don't know whether it's theoretically possible.
What I'm asking is - would it be possible, in theory, to create a cheap (say, < 50$) USB product that accepts about 4-5 microphone inputs. I'm talking about a slight delay and quality is not too much of an issue.
I know there are professional USB interfaces available, but those are rather expensive (200$+) and probably have more options / quality then what I'm talking about. I don't even need windows to recognize it as 5 different drivers, or even at all, I just want my own program to be able to get 5 different channels out of the connected device.
I haven't seen any such product, even remotely similar, so I'd be happy for your opinion if such a program is possible ot if there's any limitation that would make such a thing impossible / not-cheap.
