1/2, etc are audio streams that come across over usb. specifically 1/2 is a stereo stream, although you can split them up and record 1 mono and 2 mono to separate tracks if you wanted to.
don't forget that the x3 comes with pod farm 1 plugin for free!
for this reason i always recorded 7/8 because then i could change amps and effects without reperforming the track... sometimes it helps when mixing time comes.
pretty much any modern interface will allow you to use it for windows/media sounds as well as your recordings... so you'll be fine either way.Go to the full post
