    What do i get to add more XLR's to this?

    Also if someone has it please tell me about it, quality ext. I have a 2000 dollar budget and want to record my band simaltanisly and also all tracked differently when i want to accually mix and master. If you think theres a better set up then please go ahead and tell me. I have a computer with fans that id say are about 20-30db loud should i put foam and deflectors around the case?

    Also what do you all think of the RME Fireface 800 FireWire, what do i need to add more XLR's to it and does it come with software and if not which do you recommend?

    you could use berhringer ada8000 that will give you 8 more xlr's.

    My set up is digi002 rack (don't need the hands on features) and ada8000 and it workes great.

    The fireface will be your sound card. If you have firewire ports in your computer already, no need to buy a firewire card. If you don't, you'll need to pick up a PCI firewire card.

    You should pick out what software you want to use first, and then use that to decided everything else.

    So my monitors connect to the fireface and playback from there? What speed of firewire card should i get 400 or 800? Can i use that setup with protools? If not which should i use it with because i dont mind learning a new software.

    If you want to use Pro Tools you have to use digidesign made Audio Interface, digi002,m_box etc.

    Your monitors and headphones will connect to the digi002.
    Digi002 goes to your cpu with firewire 400.

    If you need more XLR'S you can connect something like
    the ada8000 to digi002 via lightpipe(optical).
    That will give you 16 in and out, well 18 with the spdif.

    For the RME fireface 800 what speed of firewire card should i get 400 or 800? Which software should i use with this? For those of you that own the fireface is there anything i should know about them when i build my new computer for it, like is it not compatible with some hardware or do i need pci express ext.
