I got a Yamaha AG06 Mixer/audio Interface a couple of years ago and used it with a mx49 when I needed to record vocals.
I then got a Genos last year that don't have an onboard audio interface and found out that the audio was terrible when recording to the AG06.
There was a lot humming noise on the recordings and this was not an issue with the mx49.
At first I thought it might be some electric interference at my home, but then I found another guy with the same combination – Genos + AG06 – and the exact same problem.
That led me to think that the signal from Genos might be too hot, so instead I bought a Zoom audio Interface with spdif and connected the genos that way. No more sound issues.
Now when the MODX already have an audio interface, I am thinking about selling my two other audio interfaces. I am aware that the MODX don’t have phantom
power, but I have already an external phantom power supply. I will only use the MODX, and some VST instruments and record to Cubase, so do
you think that the MODX audio interface will be enough for my needs or should I keep the AG06?
