Mixer or Audio Interface? Have some choices but need help to choose from.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I can't decide which to get a mixer or an audio interface. I picked out a few and please let me know which would be the best to choose from. I'm looking for something I could get most out of my mic which is the Blue Yeti Pro. I want to use the XLR from it instead of the USB. I don't if I should get a mixer or audio interface. I just want something that works for twitch aka OBS or skype, teamspeak or any of those voice programs.

Here is what I found so far:

Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 - USB Audio Interface
Line 6 POD Studio UX2

If you have anything else that is just as good (if they are) as these, please let me know. Looking to pick one up asap.

Thank you so so much.

Nnn... I doubt you'll get much of anything by using the XLR , on the Blue Yeti Pro, over USB. Besides, all the interfaces you want connect through USB too... So it''s a moot point, unless you want to have more than the mic active/


Can't you set the mic as your input device for those programs?

You are not understanding the point of Audio interfaces and mixers. Your mic is going to sound pretty much the same dude. If you aren't doing any kind of serious audio work you do not need those products. Don't blow money on stuff u dont need.
