Nice.

Hey, I noticed that you are using a MOTU 24IO for an audio interface. I have the same monitors as you do, and I you may want to consider upgrading your D/A conversion as soon as possible. With the amount of outboard you are using, it would be a worthy investment.

I had the 24IO for a while and upgraded to the 2408 mk3. It was a noticeable improvement at the time, but then I upgraded to Apogee converters and it made a massive difference, especially with the Focals. Your I/O requirements are much greater than mine are, but if you do get the opportunity, you may want to look into getting better D/A and A/D as well. I can tell you from experience, that you won't regret it.

I'm still using the 2408 for the digital inputs and PCI interface right now, but I'm doing all my conversion through the Apogee unit, and its a huge difference.

I'm fixing to ditch the 2408 altogether for an Apogee Symphony System, paired up with the Rosetta 200 and an AD-16X, which should satisfy my conversion needs well into the future and give me a lot more channels coming in. Eventually, I want to ditch the Rosetta for a DA-16X and run it into a Dangerous LT for some analog summing.

Anyway, just a thought for you.

I have both a 24IO and a 2408 both the mk3. I'm using the S/PDIF output from the 2408 into an Apogee Mini-DAC (in the middle of the desk). I don't use the MOTUs for Digital => Analog, just Analog => Digital from my outboard synths.

Ahh, I see. Didn't see the Mini-DAC.

surely that makes it worse than the other way around... I've always thought good quality conversion on the actually disk was more important, because you can always come back and remix later if you get a better output path, but its harder to re record stuff thats already committed.

I suppose it is but a higher quality ADC for all my synth would cost A LOT of money.

That looks exactly like the studio I'll have when I'm on vacation next week.

well my studio was just a desk, monitors and a computer in the other end of the livingroom (behind the couch u see there). i still have all of it but the desk is put away temporarly to get room for a dinning-table. it didnt fit into the livingroom with a studiodesk really, it worked terrible when having friends over etc. i just gotta move and then everything will be fine again. lol. if u wonder what happened to all the gear i used to have, i sold it all, it did nothing for me lol. i much happier using software only.
