When I started using both tape and ProTools, we couldn't use the 16 trk, but I'd do basics on the Studer, and using PT as the master, sending MTC to the Microlynx, make slaves onto PT to work from, until mix time, where we'd go back to the 827 chasing PT.

I don't know if any of that info helps anybody, but I'm stuck on a plane and over caffeinated, so I'm kinda chatty.

I was using an 827 slaved to PT last year. Beautiful machine. The control cable is a bit of a nightmare though.
I've always wanted to hear a 16track block on the Studer. I had one for our Otari which sounded immense.
A 16 track 827, with Pro Tools and an Antelope clock has to be about the finest sounding set-up money can buy.

I wont get one sat on here all day though. :/
