I'm looking for some help, What I want to do is get two 003s, get them modified by black lion audio, then ADAT those guys together to get a clean 16 (channels). This is what I know so far: - you can not daisy chain 003s via firewire - I was told the 003 does not have a stand alone mode that sends its outputs to ADAT. - LE can only record 18 tracks at a time So what I decided to do is to buy a 002, black line mod it, then later on buy a 003 and black line mod it, but what I need to know is once I get said 003, could I have 8 outboard pres going into the 002, then going out ADAT into the 003 and it will record into pro tools. I know theoretically this could work, the problem is theoretically a lot of things are suppose to work with pro tools, but it doesn't because, Digi Design always says, well if you want to do that you need HD, well guess what I don't have $15,000 laying around, and I want to record some demos, and not rent out a studio, is that too much to ask for Avid. If you have any information that could help me in anyway, that would be awesome, thanks guys and gals.
