A Beginner’s Guide to Audio Interfaces


For those of you who are unfamiliar with what an audio interface is, here's a quick run through on what an audio interface is and why it is used. An audio interface is a device that runs audio in and out of your computer or mobile device. You may be wondering why a computer or mobiles inbuilt speaker wouldn’t suffice. Let me tell you why!


One of the main reasons an audio interface is used is because a computer or a mobile device’s headphone jacks and speakers are not designed for the best audio quality. Recording music can be hard without the help of an audio interface. Audio interfaces improve the quality of sound going in and out of your device using what is called analog to digital converters on the inputs and digital to analog converters on the output. In layman terms, an audio interface converts microphone and instrument signals into a format your computer and software recognise. An interface also routes audio from your computer to your headphones and studio monitors. A good audio interface supports a 24 bit conversion at up to at least a 48KHz sample rate, with low THD%. Always ensure that you choose an audio interface with the format that matches your device.
