Round One, fight !!

Greetings,

I don't mean to have a battle ground here for you guys to fight it out or flame each other. But, I would really like to have a better idea of why you stick to your convertor/preamp and not get the other one from "across the street" ?

If you guys read my previous posts, I was quite dead set on getting the apogee minime as a mic pre that will act as an A/D as well, but recently, I've been reading again, and thought there are MORE other makes to confuse me, like the RME, Mytek, ... HEDD?!!

Another Q: I have read that if I had recorded and digitised all audio into the computer, it is advisable to keep everything there and "mix inside the box" unless I have good multi-channel D/As..

What I'm doing now, is route all 16 outputs of my 001 into an analogue mixer, and then route the 2-channel MAIN OUT of the mixer back into Protools LE for BTD.

Am I doing something wrong here?

Thanks and Regards,
[Charles]
PS. don't u think this forum now look like PT|HD's colour scheme?

Seems like a good system you have there!

In the future, you might like to add one better qulity 2 channel A/D to use for

All overdubs
To add superior clock to your system
To A/D the mix output of your analog desk back into PT for mastering

I suggest you keep working the way you are already!

What else are you using to get 8 more channels of D/A into the mixer? And which mixer are you using?

Hmm, did I type my text wrongly? IF you were referring to the mini-me, I have yet to "acquire" it, because I begin to become "fickle minded" again, and therefore would like everyone to fight it out and see who's convertor is the best.

I initially thought of getting the mini-me to act as a better mic-pre (compared to my 001) and also double as a "A/D" convertor by patching the line-ins.

Oh, sorry I forgot to mention, that I am currently using the Alesis AI-3 as a 8-channel D/A from 001 optical to mixer IN 9-16.

I was wondering, should I get the RME-ADI 8 DS as an AD/DA substitute. Any comments from any fighters?
