Okay... so, I've got a decent second audio I/O for several days... a friend of mine is letting me use his Focusrite I/O while he's on vacation, so I thought I'd try mixing to a separate DAW. Questions... There will be no external analog summing involved, hi voltage or otherwise. So, without this step, should I even bother with mixing to a secondary DAW? If the answer is yes, should I be using the analog outs of my main I/O (The Presonus VSL) to the analog ins of the other I/O (the Focusrite), or ...should I be doing this all via SPDIF, which both units have? The second PC is a laptop, on which SoundForge 8 is loaded. I planned to mix directly to this prog, and then, instead of rendering it, or "bouncing to", or "exporting as", simply just save it as a 44/24 bit .wav file. Is there any reason I shouldn't be doing it this way? Or, once again, without the benefit of summing in between, should I even bother with this? Thoughts?
