I’m looking at taking the audio from the MDX into a USB audio interface for further processing (using an iPad actually). I’ve cottoned onto the idea of using SPDIF to preserve quality. After a lot of research, I’m considering the following interfaces:
- Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 Gen 3
- Native Instruments Komplete Audio 6 MK2
- PreSonus Studio 68c
- Motu UltraLiteMk5
- Motu 4pre
- Motu Audio Express
I presume the MDX outputs SPDIF data at 24/48kHz. Is this correct?
Do I have to find an interface that samples at this rate, or will one that works faster eg 96kHz be backwards compatible and sample at a lower rate? Would doing so put the whole unit into a slower rate?
Does anyone have experience using the above interfaces, or would you recommend another one? Remember I’m using an iPad.
Is is even worth bothering with SPDIF? Should I just use the standard audio outputs with a decent interface at eg 24/192kHz?
Any info would help me greatly!
Thanks in advance!
