Hi. If you increase your budget to 4 thousand, then you can buy rme ufx + and rme 12mic. Convenience is that you throw 12mic on stage (up to 3 pieces in a cascade) and connect it via fiber optic to rme ufx + in the control room (by madi). You control the mix from Totalmix, the recording goes to a laptop + hard drive or a USB flash drive on ufx +, for reliability. It works like a clock, the sound is great. When more than 12 rme 12mic preamps are needed, 4 ufx + preamps can be added. One drawback, 12mic does not have analog outputs and control of preamplifiers does not work through totalmix (perhaps this function will be completed, since it is technologically inherent). To remotely control the preamps, I have to run the cat5e or cat6 cable for AVB, then the controls work.
Motu stage16 is also an interesting option. When I updated three years ago, I bought stage16 first. The sound was great, but I had no luck, after about 20 minutes of use, it began to click as if it could not find synchronization and the recording was interrupted. I returned her store, they sent her to the Motu service, but they could not quickly solve the problem. After 3 days of waiting, I decided to pay extra and go with rme.
Good luck

That’s an easy enough thing to work around.
My MOTU Ultralite gen 1 just randomly died on me one day, and I bought it thinking it would be "future proof." Shame on me I guess.
