I wouldn't bother unless you are A) doing the record below you regular rate as a favor to a poor band or B) doing the record specifically as the producer with the record label Otherwise in my opinion it's not really worth it to try to dig pennies put of the pockets of bands, usually only the labels ...

I'm not a fan of Gateway or Acer...but i feel that by the time you really will need 8gb RAM on the laptop the computer will be beyond obsolete anyway. I think hard drive speed would be a bigger bottleneck at this point, as well as having a dedicated video card (with it's own memory, not shared with ...

I'm almost thinking I might be expecting too much out of a BLA modded 003, maybe I should bite the bullet and get a Lynx Aurora 16. That's pushing my budget a bit for just a converter/interface, but in the long run probably a better value than buying a 003 and modding it. Five years from now the lyn...

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...
