ITB masterring HW

Simple question I think will be easily answered there:

What hardware do I need to set up an entry level ITB mastering studio?

I'm speaking only about the computer itself, and whatever D/A I need to feed my reference monitors. And anything else I'm not aware of! (meters?)

I think the question of what monitors and room treatments I need is probably already answered in other threads.

Cheers!

Obviously, some sort of software that will produce the actual master. The Samplitude / Sequoia family is a personal favorite. I have WaveLab, but I can't get used to it (although it's a "Swiss Army Knife" of a program, so I'm in no hurry to get rid of it). Other than that, you already know the other stuff. Nothing is anywhere near as important as your monitoring chain and the space those monitors are in.

Thanks for the reply, John. What about the D/A? I've haven't A/Bed converters enough to have a sense of what would be "good enough". Are there any recommended entry level solutions, or is something I already have (x32) sufficient?

Cheers

I highly recommend an Apollo X so u can get great converters and the equivalent of a bunch of outboard processors in a 1U appliance. You can stick Neve channel strips and compressors etc.. and have your stuff sound like it was recorded in a console.

Assuming you plan on plugging in instruments, microphones etc.
