I've got a Digi001 rig with a Presonus Digimax as my mic pre. I use the adat output on the Digimax into pro tools as to free up all the analog i/o's on the 001 for outboard gear/additional mics. My question is regarding converters vs. external wordclocks. It's no secret that the converters in the 001 are less than impressive but I don't have the money to buy a Rosetta (apogee) or anything comperable. I've heard pretty good things about some of the various external wordclock generaters like the Lucid for example, and for the price it sounds like a worthy endeavor. Is it safe to say that I would hear imporvements during both record and playback if I went the wordclock route, or would I be better off saving up for a AD/DA conversion unit? Granted, the digimax is probably a fairly weak link in the chain as well, and has it's own converters, but it will be replaced soon. Any suggestions would be greatlt appreciated. Danka!!!!
