I'm getting quite confused by this debate. I read Digi's response to it all on the DUC and I must say I thought some fair points were raised. I do think they should have made some clearer declaration earlier however. I feel confused about whether I have any real right to feel a bit annoyed about the situation, or if it's just sour grapes.... What do you think about it? Also I wonder what the real downsides to connecting my Apogee unit via the legacy port other than the 48kHz limit of course or through the AES/EBU at 96kHz are? Apart from the cost of the new HD interface which I know everyone's got to buy, having said that there is an upgrade policy at least for Digi hardware owners- not that I want to 'update' my Trak2. Maybe I should I be more open minded about that as I haven't even heard the new system..
