    I need advice. I'm looking for something small, portable, and clean that I can use to record on the road. I don't need multiple inputs, just a clear and strong signal. Any advice? :p:

    hi ive been using my new setup and its insane

    dell inspiron 5150 (check the specs from dell )
    roughly 3 gig
    512mb ram
    glyph fw drive

    motu 828 mk2 for multitrck
    and indigo io for quick recording no digital io

    i use the cuemix through the motu system and by far this is the best monitoring system ever.

    I have the motu and a TC m300 in a 2 space rack and honestly it has mad recording a JOY not a pain in the ass

    hope this helps

    Thanks Hemal,

    I looked at the Motu, and it was PRICEY. Seems REALLY nice but I can't afford it :( so i may just go with the indigo io. how has that thing sounded on your machine? Incidentally, I'm typing you from an Inspiron 5150 (i'm on the road).

    Thanks for the reply!

    Apple Powerbook plus a Metric Halo 2882. Doesn't get much better sound than that.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll keep my eyes peeled for deals, but I'm thinking about that Indigo. Seems to me to be pretty cost-effective, and money is a concern at the moment!
