Are your final mixes stored in your Masterlink or ITB??

The way I have my studio configured at the moment gves me the choice. I'm currently mixing down outside the box through an Audient Sumo analog summing unit which has the digital output card option installed so i can send the mix directly into my Masterlink via AES port. I also have the option of sending the Sumo's output either via its analog out into my Lynx Aurora 16/AES-16 combination back into my Nuenedo-based DAW or the Sumo's digital out directly into the Lynx AES-16 card in my DAW.

What are those of you with similar equipment doing? Are you relying totally on the Masterlink for storage, storing in your DAW or a combination of both? ....and why?

All my final mixes are stored in my Masterlink ...... my typical final mix setup is Nuendo out into Neotek console....stereo buss out of Neotek into Smart C2 then into Avalon 747 then into Manley Massive Passive then into Apogee AD 16 at 96K via AES into Masterlink..........then make both a 96/24 backup copy on CDR and also a 16/44.1 copy as a backup. I have had zero promblem with my ML (knock on wood).....hope this helps.

I keep my mastered mixes in ProTools LE at 24/48 and record the entire album to the Masterlink at 16/44.1 through analog. This removes the need for dithering. I then cut up the songs in the masterlink ready to burn (No processing with the masterlink!). Also make a Masterlink backup disk (AIFF) for safety's sake.

I've tried the digital into the masterlink with a 44.1/16 bounced session and I think the extra D/A => A/D is just a bit cleaner for some reason. Maybe I just need to get better at dithering (actually, there is very little high freq in the source, so no need).
