    well from reading these forums Im in the same place many of u have been in...I need an interface for my pc (P4, winxp) to record original music...all help is greatly appreciated! Heres what I want to achieve:

    -I have one adat that i will use so I can be compatible with a friends bigger studio (3x adats, 24 tracks).
    -I need adat i/o w/sync so I can transfer to my pc 8 tracks at a time (max 24) for editing/mixing.
    -I want something with midi (more ports better) to save buying a separate interface.

    Ive done much research on the net, here are some choices: frontier design, RME, motu...is pci better than FW or USB...HELP HELP PLEASE...of course budget IS an issue, around $500 or so??? Hopefully many of u have had hands on experience with these cards/boxes...

    Have you looked at the MOTU 828 mk IIs ?

    They are a pretty good all round unit !

    Not cheap though !

    if you don't need analog I/O the RME HDSP9652 will do what you need and more;

    3 x ADAT digital I/O, based on RME's reliable Bitclock PLL
    1 x SPDIF digital I/O, based on RME's reliable DIGI96 technology
    1 x Breakout cable for coaxial SPDIF operation
    1 x Word clock I/O (BNC) on included expansion board
    1 x ADAT Sync In (9-pin D-type) for sample accurate transfers
    2 x MIDI I/O, 32 channels high-speed MIDI via breakout cable
    HDSP Meter Bridge: freely scalable level meters, peak- and RMS calculation directly in hardware
    TotalMix: 1352 channel mixer with 40 bit internal resolution
    S/MUX poured in hardware: 12 channels 96 kHz/24 bit for record and playback on ADAT optical
