Configuring Audio Hardware and Drivers

To get sound into and out of your computer, you must have an audio interface. An audio interface is a device that converts digital audio from your computer to analog waves that speakers can broadcast. In the other direction, an audio interface converts analog waves into digital audio you can save and manipulate on your computer. Either way, an audio interface has only one purpose: It converts sound between the digital and analog domains.

More Info

The audio interface that comes with your computer is sufficient for using Logic, but it offers only a stereo eighth-inch input and a stereo eighth-inch output. These connections are usually reserved for attaching headphones to your computer or for basic recording purposes. They do not offer professional sound quality.
