I think you should go with another 8 ch mic pre like the presounous or the mackie. Mostly because I would like to hear those compared to the 896HD. I compared the 896's pres to the mackie pres in the 8 bus console (vlz?) and the mackies were way nicer, fuller lows. The motu's were bright and brittle...

You could use the adat lightpipe from the mx2424 into the digi 002. The digi 002 rack has spidf and light pipe for digital sources. I just noticed also that the phantom switches are on the back, thats lame! Using the adat in only gets you 8 more channels of input. I experienced a lot of issues using...

Ive seen a regular old lapel mic cliped onto an acoustic guitar with the clip you woud use to attach it to your tie or collar. Sounded terrible, very boomy, tons of extraineous low end. I would be pretty sweet, in a live situation, to have two outputs for your acoustic. I would put in under the brid...
