I know this might be too broad or too subjective, but I'm hitting a wall here.
I record short videos from time to time and also produce music. I bought a Behringer Xenyx X1222USB to use the additional channels it provides. Sadly I don't know a whole lot about FX Sends and AUX sends, so I played around with the routing trying to get it to work as I want it to.
Do all USB Interfaces work with a stereo mix? It seems that way to me.
What audio interface technology (Firewire, Thunderbolt, ...) could be used to let a DAW use individual channels on a mixer? Does the mixer have to be digital in order to have that feature?
Maybe someone can explain to me how a setup like this is done properly.
Thanks a lot in advance!
Edit01: Maybe to be a bit more precise: My current understanding: I have a stereo mix of all my channels going via USB to my computer. At the same time I have Main Out (2x XLR) going to a second audio interface via 6.3 jack. So I can record a max of 4 channels at the same time. I have REAPER and FL Studio.
If we ignore that part completely, the important part of the question is: "Which connector to use all channels of a mixer individually? I'm willing to spend around 600 bucks on a new one if necessary.
