Is this a feasible solution?

Ok I'm going to be getting a H8000 which supposedly has Good converters, would it be a good choice to plan on using it for a sound card? And instead of getting some cheap (kind of broke after the H8000) preamp,ad/da combo ( just use the H8000 and get a decent preamp to go with it. I only need one input and I would also be monitoring with the Eventide H8000.

I was thinking maybe the onyx sattelite cause I see them going cheap and they have the same pres as the onyx 400. I'm not sure how the converters are.

Sorry about asking some many similar questions lately.

Soon I will have something to offer you>

i don't know how they do things in alaska, but it must be the only place i've ever heard of where you buy an effects device before a recorder.

if you want to learn to play guitar, you don't buy an amp first.

maybe reevaluate your priorities. before you worry about how many different flanger presets you have, you're gonna want a high quality signal path from source to mic to pre to whatever to recorder, and then you can fvck it all up with multi-fx AFTER the fact.

Would be cool if you would at least answer the question if you are going to assume things.

I use mostly software for everything, for industrial electronica music, I'm just now going to start adding vocals into my tracks, So yeah I do already now how to record, I use logic pro for that.

Im not very familar with the H8000, but normally on units of this kind it is not possible to use as a standalone converter.

If it is possible than you will still need a soundcard in your computer that has a digital input (SPDIF, AES) prefferably the same standard as your converter.

I would be hooking the H8000 up firewire style but my computer has optical spdif also.
