Hello RO, I have been given some Macintosh hardware (Dual 2GHz) G5 and have decided that this machine would be perfect for running ProTools. Looking to build out a simple either 8x8 or 16x16 in/out studio around this machine. My question is that given I'm used to working with analog and a inline console, what would you recommend getting that is somewhere in between the Digi 002 standalone system and the higher end TDM systems with the Apogee a/d converters. My budget for the gear is < $5K. All suggestions (other than competing DAWs) welcome.
