    Hey drusif, It's difficult to recommend monitors (Pro audio speak for "speakers")... Most people would advise you to go to a pro audio store with a track you know well and test it out on different monitors. I use KRK Rokit 5's - which are very decent. Yes, the Audio 8 looks find to use as an audio inteface. :)

    yea i was told to do that. think ill go for the krks, ive wanted some for ages. as for the interface, i havent got a clue wat to do with it lol. i no how to use it for traktor but not logic. do i run my speakers into that? i no i can use it for a mic and it has midi in/out but my midi keyboard plugs straight into the laptop. think im gonna get another couple of tutorials as ur doin them half price again. cheers

    Hey Drusif Yes. You can connect the monitors to your audio outs and I suspect you have headphone outputs there too? Then as you mentioned you're good to connect your mic to the inout of the interface. You can try usibg it with Logic by selecting it in Logic's Audio Preferences /Devices tab. Hope it helps & enjoy the KRKs :)
