I am currently running a Behringer Ultragain Pro-8 Digital (mic preamp) which is going Digital Optical out into a Motu 828 which is then going firewire out into my computer. As for software, I am cheap, and I feel like an idiot saying this here but im running Cool Edit Pro 2.0. . Oh and BTW im running Windows 2000, so yes this is a PC. I know I should be using mac, I just dont have the money for a new computer right now, and my PC is very very fast! Now as far as I have gotten in Cool Edit Im almost certain that it does not support ASIO. Yet im able to get a Wave In from the Motu 828, and record 1 mono left channel, and 1 mono right channel. NONE OF THE OTHER CHANNELS ARE PICKING ANYTHING UP ON THE BEHRINGER!! Now im guessing that is just because COOL EDIT doesnt have ASIO support. Heck I dont even think it has WDM support. So can aynone here prove me wrong, or do I have to go and buy CUBASE????
