    I am looking to get an audio interface for my mac pro (So it could be a card or an USB or firewire interface, for specs see my signature). I need it to have at least two inputs, and one needs to be a guitar one but also it needs to be able to be an XLR port cause sometimes I may need to bring in two mics at the same time.

    I have been doing midi stuff for a long time and finally got into actually recording things. I have logic and am quite proficient in it so I'm not a complete noob, but looking through all these products I really have no idea what to pick. Originally I was looking at spending no more then like 150 but then I just kept looking and... Idk, I'm getting lost in the mass of these things. Anyway, I have the M-Audio AV 40s and a couple of nice headphones. What I would love is to be able to send whatever sound I like to whatever output so I could have singer one hearing... Himself and something else, and the guitar player hearing... something entirely different, I know how to do this in logic but I obviously can't because I only have one output.

    I was thinking of getting this although it only has a few outputs

    But I would be willing to pay a lot more for a better product. Somewhere up to 400 at most. Oh and also... Balanced and unbalanced? What is this? I have looked it up but..... ugh anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated
    Sorry I'm rambling but I really am lost here.

    Oh and I would pay more for a few more inputs then two

    look at the Presonus products i got a firestudio mobile for like $250.00 its only two xlr's.

    They have a firestudio that has 8 inputs but its harder to find and around $450.00 at guitar center

    most audio interfaces install easy on the mac with just a driver and Logic will recognize them when it loads us
