Digimax LT vs. Firepod

I am extremely new to recording so please forgive my ignorance. I recently purchased a PreSonus Digimax LT to use as an additional 8 pre's (via lightpipe) for my 002R. I see that the Firepod is now out and a couple hundred dollars cheaper and has a higher sample rate available. Should I have purchased a Firepod instead? What is the difference? I'm using a 2.0 G5 running 10.3.5, PTLE6.4 and the Digimax.

I don't think Firepod will work as an input to Porotools - it needs other software to record with (I think!).

Anyway, I have the 002R/Digimax LT combination and it is really fine.. Don't even think about changing it! I have gotten some very good results with it - doing tracking for a CD for a singer recently, her producer was extremely happy with the tracks i did for her, so I have good authority on what it can do. Just learn to use it appropriately and you will be happy.

I love my Digimax, have the old 44/48 khz "full" version. The pres are on the clean side and they do it good I think. Today I use it when I need an un-colored sound fast in transients. The line in's are great to.

It's a keeper to me. Have other gear for that iron sound which is so nice sometimes.
