1st question: Hi, I'm looking at new Line-level interfaces (MOTU MicroBook II USB Audio Interface). I'm wondering if it's possible to just go USB for using my synths in Ableton. I have a Prophet 12 and a Moog Sub Phatty, which are both USB and midi, but the interface I'm looking at doesn't have midi, only USB. Can I just bypass using midi cables now, and hook it all up via USB?
2nd question: With the MOTU MicroBook II interface, does it output to high quality studio monitors, like the Yamaha HS8's?
