Okay, if you're planning to do tape transfers I would scrap the 002 or 003 idea. No matter what you'll be splitting across different converters (8 of the digi ones, 4 of which you can't turn the mic pre circuit off for!). Although for reference you can use both SPIDF and Lightpipe (hence the 18 tra...

Ah I meant I wouldn't use the Digi converters off a Mix Plus rig.


If I were to get the 003R with BLA mods then I would use the converters. Obviously I couldn't get my IO requirements without using them.

If all I really wanted was 16 I/O with limited editing capabilities the Fostex LR16 doesn't look like it'd be that bad, and its exceptionally compact (no computer required!) http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fostex-LR16-Live-Recording-Mixer?sku=501674 That's one of the things I've been co...

I'll be the first to check in with a sort of annoying "None Of The Above" answer. If you're not planning on using Digi's converters, then don't be confined by using Pro Tools for the recording stage. Go with Reaper, Studio One, Garageband, or any other inexpensive DAW and then import the .WAV's int...

I have never owned an Arp Omni, but I used to owns lot of good analog synths. I would lookout for sticky/non working keys, tuning stability, scratchy pots, leaky capacitors... I would go into it knowing that you are buying quite an old piece of gear..all those components are well past their shelf li...

Mobile PT Rig Opinions?

What is a better deal...I want at least 16 I/o 003R with BLA mods (which mod..regular or signature?) Or 002R with BLA mods or Some kind of used Mix Plus system? What configuration recommended (probably not going to use the Digi converters.. I will want AES or ADAT...maybe plug in an old Apogee AD 80...

I like the look of the workflow of that thing, but you should really consider the Yamaha 01V96 (I think the new one is called the 01V96VCM but they're pretty much the same board). The workflow is more awkward on the Yamaha and you'd need an interface but I absolutely love mine. You should be able t...

I'm not pretending that I make any money off of recording, I'm in the same boat as you (audio school grad). I had a sound for film internshil for a month or so...it wasn't a scrub toilet/fetch coffee internship, I got to transfer DATs of remote recordings to Pro Tools and edit to usable samples, alo...

The Audix D4 is more natural on kick than a D6...I like them both for different things. The D4 isn't bad on bass amp or even heavy guitar. I do agree with others that in a perfect world I would prefer a condenser...though D112s work fine for both, Beta 52 is good but similar to a D6 sound. I like a ...

Define inexpensive? How much total playback time do you need? I think Korg makes a Kaoss pad that samples, and they also have a sampling keyboard that's pretty new in the same format as the MicroKorg. Or find a used Akai sampler? If you are okay with something crusty, maybe an old Casio? Maybe there...

Fostex LR16 and other live/mobile recording options

I did a quick search and I didn't see this discussed...has anyone used one of these? http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fostex-LR16-Live-Recording-Mixer?sku=501674 The price is very enticing (especially with the $400 MIR if bought by the end of the month), but for some reason I associate F...

Anyone else chime in on this? I'm really considering one around tax time as I think it suits how I intend to work (primarily live/mobile recording and personal use).

I personally would suggest getting the dedicated video card if only for the reason that at least you would free up resources from your CPU and memory allowing it to do other things like run plugins.. I know that Pro Tools says that it requires a dedicated video card, though I've never tested this re...
