Audio Interfaces (Thunderbolt 3 vs USB-C, DUO vs DUO DSP)
Thanks for the mic suggestions in this forum, I think I will be going with the V67. For the final piece, I’m looking at the Apollo Twin Audio Interfaces. They’re all here: Apollo Twin – Audio Interfaces (uaudio.com). The only difference I currently see between the top two I’m comparing (Apollo Twin X vs Apollo Twin X USB) is the Thunderbolt 3 vs USB-C port, and the description of DUO vs DUO DSP. The prices are identical at $999. I will be using a Dell Alienware laptop to record with. Is there a meaningful difference between these two?
I know Thunderbolt 3 is compatible with Mac & Windows USB-C, but the reverse is not true. The DSP means the audio interface not only has two processing cores, but also has integrated digital signal processing capabilities. So, based on that, my current understanding is that the regular X is more computer-flexible, but the X USB has more processing capabilities. Is that the right way to look at this?
Thanks for any and all help,
