Because I learned from a dealer of both that the HD interfaces will still be faster than thunderbolt. But that thunderbolt will be a close second.
No latency with plugins added to live tracking with the apollo, it's true, you missed the point!!
(No latency is actually 2m.s max according UA website)
The no latency thing WITH UAD plugs is THE reason i want to buy it!
Add a studer on my drum machine, a space echo on a guitar, an LA2A on a voice for a live show, comon!!!
Have you seen the video with Fab????
The plugs can act before the DAW or in standalone, without a computer.
Firewire will be enough to start with, no latency with firewire already, so thunderbolt is a bonus.
HD interfaces faster than thunderbolt? that doesn't mean anything, thunderbolt is PCIe... And even if there is something faster, who cares, no latency is no latency, you won't hear any difference between 2ms or 1ms!
