Totally hi end conversion after the mod. (with a bla mkll word clock)
I've been looking for a way to get a little more expanded i/o in my studio, and I saw the post above mentioning the BLA mods. I didn't even know they did them for the 2626. I've had mine since it was released, and it's always been good to me. There were some early driver issues with external clocking, but that went away a long time ago.
DR Music, do you think that the modded 2626 is a good companion/expansion to my Apogee AD-16x / DA-16x setup? I currently use the 2626 as i/o 17-24... mostly outs to the Toft console for mixdown. I've been dreaming about getting another 8 channels of output, and when I stumbled on the BLA mod for them, it made me think I could get another 2626 and get both modded to have 32 i/o that's all really professional. Am I day dreaming, or would the modded M-audio hold a candle to the high-end Apogees. You mentioned that it was better than your ensemble, so I figure it's worth investigating.
It would save me a boatload.
