Hi everyone. I'm new... at least to the Digi 001 forum (but not th RO) My name is Phil O'Keefe, and I own a commercial studio out in Riverside CA. I've tried to avoid PT for some time, but I guess I'm going to have to add it for compatability with some of my clients and with larger studios in Hollywood (I've been using hard disk recorders and Logic Platinum and more receintly I added Sonar and am using these programs with a Frontier Design Dakota / Montana card setup and a Tascam US-428). Anyway, here's my questions: 1. I went to NAMM, and while they had a working version of Windows XP capable LE software, it's probably not going to ship for a couple / few months. So I'll probably have to install ME or 98 SE on one of our PC's (currently running XP) - any preferences in terms of stability / reliability? Mac's not really an option right now... 2. Anyone using a Digi 001 on a Compaq PC? I'm thinking of installing it on a Compaq 5005SR (933 MHz PIII, 512 MB RAM, dual 7,200 rpm HDD's, Intel 810 E Mobo chipset). Should this be compatable? Graphics are on the mobo (AGP) but no AGP card slot... should I consider a different motherboard? 3. Track expectations on a system like this? Should I be able to get 24 tracks and a few plug ins? I really plan on using it mostly for editing, but I'm curious about how much I can realistically expect from this PC with the '001. 4. Can I use the Digi 001 hardware (MIDI port, audio / lightpipe connections) from within Logic Platinum? Anyone actually doing this? I'd like to continue using Logic for MIDI and PT LE for audio editing... 5. Sync is an issue for me. I understand sync pretty well - there's two forms of sync - positional sync (MTC) and word clock sync. I have read that the Digi 001 doesn't have a BNC connection for hooking up my studio's master word clock into, but I have heard it can clock word clock from an external device connected to the S/PDIF port. Does anyone know if it can lock to external word clock off an incoming ADAT lightpipe connection? If not, I guess I can hook up a MIDI cable from one of my hard disk recorder's MIDI out for positional sync, and send the Digi 001 word clock over S/PDIF from one of the other devices that are clocked from the master word clock device. Since the 001 uses MTC trigger sync, it should remain stable lockup for a considerable amount of time as long as all devices are running from a common word clock source. Comments / suggestions / opinions? 6. Does the 001 use .WAV format for the files? Can I freely exchange .WAV files between Logic and PT LE? Anyway, I'm sure that I'll have more questions, and I look forward to participating in the Digi 001 forum. Any and all suggestions and input are greatly appreciated! Thanks again, and sorry for so many questions at once.
