Howdy. In the next year I will be investing in a new front end for my daw, and I need some advice. I'm looking for a combination 8 channel mic pre, 8 channel ADC, a PCI interface, and cables able to handle distance with as little loss as possible. My biggest concern/problem is that I have to record 75 feet away from the source. I've been looking at the Grace m802, Crookwood iPre, Crane Song Spider, etc..., and I'm interested in RME as I hear they are most compatible with my daw - (Samplitude). So many choices! Any help, advice, friendly words, etc. would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance. D.
