  1. i was looking at getting a Radikal sac2.2 controller for my nuendo system.. i found one for $1500... but is just a controller nothing more.. i got offered a used D8B for $2100.. with version 5.1... to me thats the betetr buy not to mention it can still be a controller for nuendo 2.1 but it gives me a chance to expand a little more..

    what do you think? :confused:
     
  2. anyone?
    i think i'ma get the D8b for the hell of it..

    I recently acquired a Sac 2.2 and though I'm still waiting for a driver for MOTU DP4, I'm pleased with the purchase--I use it in Mackie emulation mode and it is functional.

    These are going for about $700 on Ebay. There's a guy who seems to have an endless supply of them and starts the bid at $1 with a $700 reserve.

    I don't know about the support yet. They guys in Germany are very responsive, but they've had problems with their US office. It seems the US support guy quit the job and forgot to tell his employers.

    I was just looking at the d8b myself. thinking I could get it to control sonar, and maybe one day get an HDR one day. Without the goal of one day getting a modular recorder, then I think it's way too much money for what you'll be doing with it, even at $2500(sweet price though).
    If I were using Nuendo, I don't think I'd consider a modular hardDisk recorder, even with the d8b, it's too much of a step backwards.
     
  5. i was trying to set my spot up like my boys. he has a d8b with nuendo..
    he uses3 motu 2408mkIII for tracking tdif through the d8b..and i know i'll expand soon.. for times that i don't wanna use the computer or can't.. i can have a hdr withthe d8b..
