A/D Converter Upgrade PT LE


I've been thinking about upgrading my A/D Converter for a while now. I'm currently using a 003 running PT LE. I don't want to upgrade to PT HD because I don't really feel the need and it seems like a waste of money to me (I'm not a plugin kind of guy). I record mostly indie rock. Ideally I'd want to record to tape, but I don't have the money or space in my studio for a tape machine.

I'm looking for suggestions for a better quality A/D converter. I'd appreciate it if you could comment on the sound quality improvement that you noticed when you upgraded.

I also sometimes wish I could track drums with 10 channels instead of 8. Are there any high quality converters out there that do more than 8 channels for PT LE?

Thanks for the help.

apogee rosetta 800. It's awesome. 8 more channels of high quality I/O.

i'd also suggest the rosetta.
i bought the UA2192, 2 track AD/DA which sounds fantastic but sometimes 2 channels isn't enough. good luck, jeremy
