    ok but so would that mean if im micing a bass amp it would be bass>amp>mic>interface?

    i srry i looked at all suggestions just quoted the most recent one my bad, and thanks im still not sure if theres is a diff between di box and audio interface but ill burn that bridge when i get to it, the bheringer one looks best for me cuz alot of 5star reviews and a decent price point my only concern is durability but that shouldnt be to big an issue cuz i shouldnt be moving it to terribly much

    Typically a multi-channel interface will have drivers that make it, or will otherwise natively be, compatible with your multi-tracking software, which will allow you to specify that a specific track only receives signal from a specific Input/Source, meaning Track 1 receives from only Channel 1 and Track 2 only receives from Channel 2 of your interface.

    Each one is worded differently, so RTFM
