I have an EPM 8 mixer by Soundcraft. How could I connect the mixed signal in a stereo format? Is there any best way to minimize latency? Is firewire good to use? I have a Firewire input on my computer. I want to run it through Audacity. Thanks, Charlie
The EPM8 looks to me like it's an all analog setup. IMHO, the best way to hook this up is with a stereo adapter cable into a decent sound card.
To minimize latency, keep it analog as long as possible, then have a high quality sound board to handle the A to D conversion.
I use a Edirol UA25 (its about 10 years old now) but that connects via USB 2.0 to my MacPro which connects to my Soundcraft mixer.
I have all my sound kit, Mic, iPhone, etc connected to the mixer and the outputs to the inputs on the Edirol and the outputs on the Edirol to the speakers.
