Just need some help deciding which one to buy. I heard good things about both. thanks...
If you use mostly plug-ins for your signal processing then i would say go with the project mix. But If you have alot of outboard gear that you use then you will be limited with the project mix. It only has 4 analog outs verses the 8 on the 002. The project mix doesnt have dedicated outs for monitors so you would have to use at least 2 of your outputs for one set of monitors. But like i said if your just using plug ins you'd be fine!
Id go with the 002. Also, if you plan on mixing in the box make your computer is reall powerful. PT le is a CPU whore especially when using plug ins. I use about 14 plug ins and the CPU starts to choke.
My next set, I am gonna get away from Protools.
Some sort of Mac
Im also stuck on which to buy.... the digi002 vs the projectmix I/o
Ive been researching both for two months... from what I hear the digi002 has awful preamps and shitty converters, and the projectmix i/o sounds like crap and is a bad piece of equipment in general.
But which is better?
I would not buy either of them.
I would be looking at something like a Motu traveller. Expansion, higher sample rates, better Pres and generally better build quality. then use samplitude or Nuendo with it. Motu's customer support is amazing too. If you have a question they are more than happy to help. Digital performer is a great software package if you are running a mac. Pro tools LE is not the be all and end all of recording software. Hope this gives you another "Better" option. Good Luck. :!:
