USB & Bus Mixers!

Post by MadDogRadioLive on Tue 20 Mar 2012, 12:02 am

Which type of mixer is better? USB or bus mixers? A USB mixer is connected to the computer, routing the audio from the computer back into the mixer by simply selecting the 2 Track To USB, etc. With a bus mixer, the audio is sent through a TRS Cable or a RCA Cable. TRS cables have a quarter inch end which plugs into the bus mixer, and a 3.55 end that plugs into your soundcard on your mixer. The TRS function will also work with a USB mixer if you do not route the audio via the USB cable. I currently use a Alesis Multimix 8 USB FX which sells for $149 USD. It has built in phantom power which is needed for condenser microphones, 4 RCA inputs, And 8 channels, as well as on-board effects. I will not go over all the features on this mixer in this post! Hope this helps, and happy broadcasting! Smile

I don't think this should be stickied due to only being the first post and not as much information to persuade people. I have read it and it doesn't really persuade me on how it is better. scratch

Sending audio via USB is usually slow, versus via Thunderbolt. TBH I use USB, because all I know about Thunderbolt is that it is for Mac.

Yeah but they are useful for purpose they are being used for. When I used to use the usb Logitech Microphone headset I used to use it only for talking on the air, not for playing the music, when I play music I would use a stereo mix so it would go directly from my computer to the live stream as well as other softwares mixed in such as Sam Broadcaster, Adobe flash media encoder and manycam.

But for the purpose I was using them for it was useful.

Well maybe it's not bad for broadcasting, but when recording music it causes latency issues sometimes.
