Lately I have been recording drums on my G5 powermac using Addictive drums/ Logic Pro and now its time to record some guitar. I am the owner of TC Konnekt 24, but I am selling it due to the horrible drivers and the lack of decent support.
I will record guitar tracks through line in, and then reamp the line signal with 2 mics. I will therefore, as I understand it, need at least three outputs, 1 for routing the recorded line signal to a guitar amp, and two for monitoring.
This is my debut post on this forum, but have been watching and reading up for a while, about Apogee & Metric Halo. Apogee Duet provides with me three outputs, though one of them is a headphone output without its own DAC, I will have to hook it up, as described on the Apogge site FAQ:
(Apogee Electronics: Products: Duet
..using aggregate devices. A bit tricky for a newbie like me and I will have to us the low quality DAC (compared to the Apoggee) on my G5 but it looks dueable and is the cheapest option compared to Metric Halo . The Metric Halo, should suit my needs in this regard without problems but is more expensive.
Because of my lack of technical experience I would really love some input on this matter, is there something i have misunderstood?
How about the the Apogee Mic preamps, converters and overall sound quality, is it better compared to the Metric Halo?
Hope someone can help, thanx....
