Im reviewing my options for building an HD system for both tracking and mixing purposes. My question to all of you out there with more experience with the technology, is what is the best way to go about it? I now the differences between the different HD systems, the PCI cards, the interfaces etc, but, what is the most ideal? Also I am curious as to what a good setup for a multiple channel mic pre would be and what specifically would go well with say a 96 interface. Meaning more specifically, what type of connection between the two is good and is going to prove to be best for signal flow. I have been doing a lot of investigating, but advice from someone who knows the gear, and the way some of the gear interacts would be helpful. I just want to avoid jitter and digital errors in the whole process.
