Hey guys, I'm in the process of updating all my gear piece by piece (like most of us ) and I have a few questions. Right now I'm running windows 2000, Athlon 1800XP, with 2 internal hard drives and I use Cubase SX along with an MAudio Delta 44 sound card. Well, I'd like to update my converters and get something like the Apogee Rosetta 200. Has anyone seen one yet? So far, most of my recordings are done with only one musician at a time (that'd be me) so I don't need too many channels right now. Right now I go through the Maudio and onto the hard drive and playback all of my tracks (which is usually under 20) through the 2 stereo tracks on the MAudio and I use the computers soundblaster card for midi in outs. My questions are: What do I need if I want to get an Apogee 200 and run firewire? (Besides a lot of cash) Will I need another soundcard in my computer such as an RME to use the Apogee or do I do all the converting both ways through the Apogee? I know that the quality will be great when I record but will I lose it once I start mixing and burn to CD? How many tracks will I be able to playback through a 1 or 2 channel apogee? Does the Apogee determine this or would a card like the RME be the thing that controls all playback and burning? How does this whole process work?
