Anybody using motu and rme together?

I have a motu 896 and I'm looking to buy another because i need more inputs, but I've heard alot of good stuff about RME. Is there an RME product I can buy that will seamlessly integrate with my 896? anybody have the same issue???

Thanks,

fetter

It depends on your software if you can use both at once (if you buy a real soundcard, like Fireface), unless you connect one to the other via ADAT (in case of a convertor like ADI-8 or Fireface in standalone).

Thanks Dr.,
what do you mean buy "real" soundcard?" and what would it do? I was wondering about the software because the motu has nice virtual monitor software...does rme stuff have the same? I was thinking about connecting an ADI-8 into the 896, but i wonder if i could monitor....hmmm

With 'real' soundcard, i mean not just the AD/DA convertor, but something that is connected to your computer directly to interface with it. You MOTU is a soundcard.
In your case, a pure AD/DA convertor like the ADI-8 is the best.Yyou can hook it up to your 896HD via ADAT. It'd be just like if your 896HD has more analog I/O, the routing software of the MOTU stays the same.
RME stuff only has it's own routing software if it's a soundcard, not only a convertor.
