The rosetta does have waaay better sounding converters than the 002 though.. but don't forget, a Rosetta is just an AD/DA converter.. you still need a mic pre to get analog to it. Cha-ching.heh
Totally agree; clocking the 002 from the 800 is a minute difference. When I track thru the Rosetta 800 I'll record scratch tracks into the 002's preamp/converter but they don't sound too good up against the Rosetta 800.

But a lot of that may be the fact that when I do that, the scratch tracks go via the 002 preamps too.

If you clock the 002 externally and use better preamps with the 002 converters it might be better.

But there's no real problem running the session that way, if that's the question.
