I'm looking to get off my vs-880ex and onto a computer based DAW. I have preamps and outboard gear just need a good ada converter. I was wondering what people would recommend under a grand. I would prefer to use firewire for portability's sake. Also, I would also like it to have atleast 8 ins and 8 outs and be able to COMPLETELY bypass the preamps so I can use my own and not worry about some cheap IC coloring my tone. In fact if there is just a decent line level firewire converter with NO pre's I would be happy Here is what i've been looking at so far: Presonus FirePod Focusrite OctiPre Motu 828 mkII Layla 3g Delta 10/10 Behringer ADA8000 with a PCI ADAT card (cheapest) but like I said, if anybody knows of a firewire based ada converter without pres that has 8 ins and 8 outs that would be awesome! Midi isn't important to me right now but would be appreciated!
