i'm looking for new converters/interface.
running a focusrite spahire pro 40 at the moment which sounds okay
but i need more (and better
) ins & outs for OTB mixing /tracking.
my needs are:
-24 out / at least 16 in.
-no mic pres or 48V, line level only
-pci + box would be okay
-48khz/24bit is fine for me
-budget is around 1400-1500 euro
i read alot here in the forums and it seemed to be that the motu 24 i/o
does not have better converters and some people have issues with the internal clock. the option of a pair of echo audiofire 12 sounded okay for the price but i'm wondering if they are much better than the focusrites? maybe the profire lightbridge with ferrofish 16mkII and some used 8 ch adc?
i didnt hear many good mid-priced ones till now but the ones on my emu1212 pci do sound very open and good for me and quite better as the focusrites..this "quality level" would be absolutley ok for me! if you know them you could guess what im looking for quality wise.
hope some of you guys could help me!
sorry for my bad english hope it makes sense to you
thanks in advance!
