Ok, so I just upgraded to an HD system (thanks to mckay aka BOUNCE for the 192 i/o!) in my studio and I want to move all my pre-production stuff into it's own room. The room will have a DIGI 002 rack in it to use for editing, some light recording, etc. It will also have all my pre pro gear which is an MPC 60, a some analog synths and sound modules, drum machines etc. It will also have a mackie 1604 mixer to hook all that up to while making beats etc. So my A room will have the HD set up, and my outboard gear for tracking and mixing. Now my dilemma is that I want to be able to track all my pre-production stuff thru the outboard stuff in my A room. Anybody have any tips on how I should snake it and patch it to make things easier? I would also have to run a long MIDI cord from room A to room B for MTC when i track the beats. And it seems like I would have to keep running back and forth between the rooms between passes of the beat. The only solution I have kind of came up for that would be a long video cord and switcher box so I could control room B's computer from room A. Any other suggestions on a good way to hook everything up? Sorry for the long post and if i posted it in the wrong section. This seemed the most appropriate, feel free to move it if needed. Thanks in advance for the help!
