BTD STUDIO REVIEW:
Here’s another very cool tool we have in our studio. We own several of these Behringer cables. Basically what it allows you to do is turn your analog mixer into USB so you can hook up any mixer to your computer. Very easy to hook up, low latency, we use Ableton in the studio with two older mixers. Highly recommended if you have older mixers around. Make use of them.
