Audio Interface and the 10 Things Need To Know
The audio interface is a very great physical device if you love and learn about sound. You can learn more at Soldierstudio to learn about this device. In this article, I will help you with the basic knowledge to soundcard recording or Audio Interface is a peripheral device that connects to your computer, they can function as a bridge to transmit audio signals from the external to the computer and vice versa. An Audio Interface today perform many different functions, from pre-amplification function (Pre-amp), convert analog signals into digital signals and vice versa (ADA converter), digital signal processor (DSP- Digital signal processor), transshipment demand signal to the computer Midi (Midi Port) and to the phantom power supply for Condenser microphones operate. Looking at the key functions of an Audio Interface, we can imagine that our computers can do it, so why we should need them, let’s find the reason why.
Surely each of us who do not specialize in the field of recording beginning learn about the equipment in the recording are anxious and hesitated to buy the device for good quality jobs that fit mine. On Audio Interface device market is now very diverse to fit many business purposes, affordability, quality … low to high. So first we must see if it has any kind. Sound quality has been good to last or not it depends on many factors, but perhaps Audio Interface is most important equipment in the studio system. It is the audio equipment into the exchange between a computer with audio signals; audio signals turned physical waveform (analog) into digital signals (Digital). So the quality of Audio Interface is evaluated on sound quality conversion from analog to digital and back again, but the sound did not decline much, it depends on the technology conversion (DAC) of each component maker hardware, system processing, and chocolate chip sampling…
- Power for Condenser Microphones:
Large -Part today we use condenser microphones by high sensitivity and greater detail, this microphone 48V phantom power required to operate, and we do not have a computer of this power source. Most of today’s Audio Interface function 48V Phantom Power
- The Amplifier (Pre Amp)
Condenser Microphone cues from just the tiny electrical signals, to make it a normal signal before conversion into digital signals we need to amplify it to many thousands of times, our computers do not but this is an Audio Interface with integrated, most associated Pre Amp.
Function Gain (Pre Amp) of an Audio Interface
- The Process of Conversion and Decoding Digital Signals (ADA)
-Most Computers today have this function, but a professional Audio Interface to do much better, especially the transition to Digital Analog signal (the AD), we can imagine this conversion work is like drawing back a specimen of architecture, while this function on your computer comes like an amateur artist to work more errors and slow. It is another Audio Interface skilled artist quickly and accurately, for a fuller sound and much cleaner.
- The digital signal processor (DSP-Digital Signal Processor)
-In When the digital signal processing flow back and forth on the Audio Interface is an independent division and specialization then with our computer it is the burden of the CPU, having to undertake too many tasks from system operating software to make the CPU do not function well, such as increasing the index of the sound distortion like THD (Total harmony distortion), jitter, high slow..Vv
RME-famous audio company manufactured Audio Interface with DSP processor is very powerful
-In this article, I will not analyze further and Asio, the interface is always accompanied by the Asio for you to customize and minimize latency (latency), although with the computer we also have many applications to overcome known as hysteresis ASIO4ALL such software. But in my opinion it is only a temporary fire fighting plans never effective than using the Audio Interface is Asio.
- When you need more ports in / out
Live pseudo you want to collect all that a band with instruments from 2.3 or higher, you will need an Interface multiple ports Audio in / Out to cater to this demand; the computer cannot meet, but not discussed the sound quality of all recordings.
- The Midi port and port number.
A professional Audio Interface provides you with a lot of interfaces such as MIDI, the standard port number many different (optical, S / PDIF, AES / EBU) helps us a lot more convenient for the device pairing. A professional Audio Interface with lots of gadgets such as MIDI port and the port of Digital
* All of the above is what the analysis of the most basic benefits of an Audio Interface Sound Card recording and, certainly, but also much more limited in the article I just stop here, wish you would find a Soundcard Audio Interface and satisfactory record.
In this article, cannot even describe the 10 things about audio interface, but in the following article, I will help you understand more fully
