Until now, the devices that had both inputs and outputs were all we had to choose from for Hauptwerk. It meant that you were paying for a lot of features and capacity that you would never use. Now you can get an affordably priced audio output interface which only focuses on audio outputs. This is the LP-16
So What, Exactly, Does It Have?
For the purposes of Hauptwerk, the LP-16 has:
- 16 x 1/4" analog outputs (unbalanced)
- 1 x 14" headphone output jack with front mounted volume control
- MIDI in jack
- MIDI out jack
- USB 2.0 connection to your computer
- Top-mounted LCD screen to monitor line out volume levels
- Playback 16 tracks at 24-bit, 44.1/48kHz
- Compatible Mac OS x 10.8+ or PC Win XP+
One great thing about this interface is that the headphone output (L+R) are assignable separately from the 16 1/4" outputs. Basically, you have 18 assignable output channels. So, all 16 of those 1/4" outputs can have unique audio signals coming from them and you can still have a headphone output on top of that. You don't have to sacrifice 2 of the channels as a bounce down pair that is then mirrored out the headphone output like you would have to do on many other interfaces.
I realize that the reason you'd be looking at the LP-16 would be primarily for it's audio outputs. I have to say though, it looks and feels well built; especially for home use. Take that for what it's worth.
