Best Audio Interfaces for Running Multitracks with Your Worship Band

Audio Interfaces are great tools because they allow you to send multiple groupings of instruments to your mixer so you can mix your multitracks live as if they are part of the band when you play.


The key to using multitracks is that they aren't meant to be the master of your worship band - they're meant to be a part of the band. The best way to make sure this is the case, and that multitracks aren't overpowering your band, is to make your own multitracks. Learn how to make your own multitracks with the Custom Multitracks Masterclass. The course walks you through everything, A to Z, so you don't have to worry about being 'ready' to take the course. If you're a worship leader or band member and are interested in making your own multitracks - you're ready for the course. We teach you the rest.


Choosing the right audio interface to run your tracks through is really important. Before shopping for the right one, be sure to decide how many outputs or how many instruments you want to send through the interface. This will help you decide what you need in an interface. Below is our comprehensive list of interfaces you can use for your worship team’s multitracks and a few of the pros and cons of each.


1. Play Audio 12 - $600

Pros:

  1. 12 Outputs

  2. Built in Redundancy so you can run two Ableton computers at once

  3. It is small, durable and lightweight

Cons:

  1. It takes a decent amount of skill to set up

  2. It's not incredibly easy to use, it requires extra attention to utilize all of it's powerful features

  3. The customer support isn’t great, and there are only a few instructional Youtube videos on how to use it

Here's one:



2. Presonus Studio 1824c - $500

Pros:

  1. An audio interface that is rack-able

  2. It processes very fast with USB C

  3. It can also be used as an audio interface to make your own Custom Multitracks.

Cons:

  1. If you don't have it racked, then it can be big and clunky and create a messy stage

  2. It's relatively expensive for the features it has

  3. Not optimized for live settings, it's designed for more studio-style settings





3. Focusrite Scarlett 4i4 - $230

Pros:

  1. Incredibly cost efficient

  2. 4 outputs for a simple tracks setup

  3. It can also be used as a recording interface for creating Custom Multitracks

  4. Uses USB C which processes at very high speeds

Cons:

  1. The interface isn't optimized for live formats

  2. Somewhat fragile and isn't built for the wear and tear of live formats



4. Radial USB DI - $220

Pros:

  1. It's really small and lightweight

  2. It is incredibly easy to use. A perfect starting place for a beginner in multitracks

  3. Cheap and incredibly durable. This is a great option for a mobile church

Cons:

  1. You only have two output channels for sending stereo audio out to your mixing board (which we recommend doing). You would need to find another solution for running your click track to your mixing board, which you could do via your headphone jack on your Mac.

  2. It is only an output device, no inputs so you can't also use it as a recording interface.
