I'm looking to get either a Lynx Hilo or Aurora 8 with FW. If I get the Aurora 8, i'll need monitor control. (Aurora-->Monitor Control-->Monitors)
I would REALLY like to get the Hilo, but I would also really like to be able to hear my 2 buss pass through my outboard gear while recording a new track, and the i/o on the Hilo can't offer me that option unless I splurge for another 2 channel AD/DA and connect them via ADAT.
So I think getting an Aurora 8 with the FW card and using that as a direct interface with PT is the best option I have....and it's an option that needs monitor control!
What do you guys suggest? Has anyone here used the Kush Audio Gain Train? Any better options? I don't want to go nuts moneywise, so i'd like to keep it not much over $1k if possible without compromising too much quality.
GOOD I WISH I COULD GET THE HILO!! I HEAR ITS MUCH BETTER THAN THE AURORAS!!!
