Do I really need external audio interface?
In my live performance I use Live just for generate sounds: clips, drum rack and vst that I "play" using several controllers. I take the output of my PC and connect it to a mixer and then I play with my friends (VOX & Guitar).
I don't input any signals un my PC.
In this situation what an external audio interface (USB) can do for me?
I ask this because I tried to used a couple of external audio interface and I haven't noticed any benefits in terms of better sound (just more gain, that I can supply increase the volume on the mixer).
Instead I've noticed some momentary problems like latency (on the answer of the controllers) or noise.
Maybe with a very expensive audio interface I can have significantly better output sound.. but, up to now, I play in little club with a no-so-good P.A. system :-)
