Talking Opinions for a portable recording rig

I've been doing some academic work, and I wanted to get some other opinions of a 'possible' future recording rig.

Standard Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 PC
M-Audio ProFire Lightbridge
2x MOTU 8pre's running at 24bit/96khz (total inputs at that rate 16 inputs)
Mics:
2x SM57s
2x SM58s
2x AKG 214's
2x Sennheiser MD 421 II

Rack Mount Case
Mic Cables

Total cost: Less than $5,000

I know its not the best (not an HD rig) but allows for more than 8 channels of input into protools at 24-bit/96khz.

I kept wanting to use a 003 console, however I'd still need to throw in somekind of 8pre (Motu or other) which would add another more cost back in.

Any positive suggestions would be appreciated.

We have this forum called "Remote Possibilities in Acoustic Music & Location Recording."

We discuss all things remote which includes opinions on all sorts of portable rigs.

I figured you never got a reply in the other forum, so I figured I'm move your thread to the land of Remote Possibilities.

Since your thread is dated I guess I should ask how everything worked out?

Could you offer us more information about what you are interested in...

Live recordings?

Sessions with school groups?

Recording local songwriters?

Generally, computers aren't ideal for live recordings.

Understood. My main goal is Recording Local Songwriters / Small Band Sessions.

I could have sworn that this thread was answered a long time (back in August) ago by some people that recommended a specific interface for this kind of work.
