    hi there all...my first post.

    I found this group while searching for information about getting myself a fancy new capture thingey.

    I am radio reporter always
    looking to make the highest quality reports
    from all points of view -- including sound.
    I am planning to do some high-resolution
    audio recording and editing and want to upgrade
    my equiment accordingly.

    Ive looked at thing like the MBox, which as far
    as a device style is concerned is pretty close
    to what im looking for. Id like to get something that i can plug into my desk PC and also take with
    me for field recording with a laptop.

    The limits of that device (usb, 48khz etc)make me
    think that futureproofing requires a higher spec.
    Is there something out there that is firewire
    and deal with higher resolution audio?

    thanks in advance

    Luke

    Maudio Firewire 410 comes out in july.
    Its fully bus powered (portable). Hopefulyl the onboard pres are worth a damn, if not this will be useless... 400$ btw...

    Dont ever buy any USB2.0 audio interfaces if they make any. USB2.0 uses CPU. Firewire doesnt.

    SoundDesign makes a think called the USBpre for 450$
