What to upgrade?
Hey guys. There's a plethora of these posts but what I really need is a logical order of which to get gear I guess, and what to get.
Currently my lame setup:
Macbook Pro 2.4ghz 4gb DDR3 RAM. 5200RPM Drive...
Firepod (NO ADAT!?)
Behringer Xenyx mixer (serving absolutely no purpose...need to sell it, I don't foresee a use for it)
I'm torn between getting maybe a profire lightbridge and then some nice ADAT capable pre's, or getting perhaps the Mackie Onyx-i mixers with PT8 compatability, or getting another firepod.
My goal is to have more than 8 simultaneous pres as well as having better converters and perhaps a good clock. But i don't want to spend 1,000+ for each piece of gear...
I'm pissed that my firepod is so proprietary. Only works with the EXACT same old model that is discontinued and overpriced. The pres are not bad but I want to integrate Focusrite or something else for live band recordings...
On top of all that I want better monitors. But before that I need room treatment. Auralex? Baaah! where to start?
I want pro tools 8 compatability...so thats lame too.
