Need your input! Im looking for a little guidance/insight on how to upgrade my 'semi-pro setup' to 'all-Pro'. I've been recording clients for the past two years with this setup, and I've come a long way in skills, but its time to upgrade audio "quality", particularly with regards to conversion. I only use 8 microphone inputs at any one time. Currently have: Digi Rack 002 (as Interface, preamps and A/D conversion) (2x) M-Audio Audio Buddy mic preamps Imac 27'' 2Ghz Dual Core 2 GB RAM, Various mid-level mics Goals: More CPU power Better A/D conversion Pro level preamps Looking into: Mac Pro Quad core (faster CPU, probably used), or PT HD1 system (in conjunction with current Imac) Apogee Ensemble, Fireface 800 (preamps and A/D conversion handled) Affordable pro quality preamps... any suggestions?? I want to hear suggestions from those of you who used to be in my situation, have upgraded and been happy! Again, I have 6-7k to invest. Thanks!
