Questions about CI1

Post by chrodos » Fri May 18, 2012 7:05 pm

Hello,

I am thinking of buying a ci1 and i have some questions.
1) can i use it with skype?
2) can i connect 2 mics or line out xlr cables and get the sound of both mics (some sort of mixing sound)?
3) Can i connect both balanced and unbalance lineout on the 2 inputs?

Any help will be appreciated.

1. Yes, it can be used with any Windows application.
The interface can also be set as the Windows default audio device. (Control Panel > Sound)
2. Yes, or say one microphone and one guitar, or even a stereo source.
3. Yes.

Thank you very much for answering . What i have in mind is to connect 1 lineout from an amplifier (2 mics connected on that) and 1 xlr lineout from a wireless mic system (2 mics on that). Combined sound from all sources (4) should be transmitted through skype. Will i be able to do that?

Not having used this setup, I see no reason why this should not be possible.
