USB Interface/Mixers VS. Digital Recorders
One of the main differences between these two devices is how they actually reocrd audio.
USB Interface/Mixer - Plugs into your computer w/ a USB cable, connect to your DAW (digital audio workstation), such as Audacity, Garageband, Adobe Audition, and record onto your hard drive. Digital Recorder - Typically Records to SD Card in the Recorder.
Digital Recorders - MOBILE/PORTABLE USB Interface/Mixers - Not always as portable Outputs/Monitoring Digital Recorders - Typically one or two kinds of outputs: Headphone Jack, Auxiliary Jack Mixers - Multiple Outputs, good for live situations, livestreaming, monitoring, etc.
