Lives for gear

cannot comment on the mci regarding noise: those i used were shielded off/ in a machine room.

if it's gonna be a studer (which i personally prefer: i don't want the tape machine to do much to the sound, i'm doing 'sound' elsewhere - but hey, 'all kind if beats for all kind of feets'!), i wouldn't hesitate to put it in the control room (punching in on my a800 works better on the machine than via remote) which also makes things easier regarding the cabling: repro head out (if needed, you could trim the two outputs differently for proper level matching or to leave some headroom for tracks which you may want to hit hard such as kick, bass, bass with comp etc.) into your a/d converters.
