Logic Pro 7 audio I/O? Best choice.

    I'm using Digital Performer right now with a 2408 setup but may be able to purchase Logic Pro very cheaply. I'm thinking of using it for mobile recording and wanted to know what is the best non-Digidesign audio interface to use with just Logic Pro (no Pro Tools involved).

    Feel free to throw out any Mac solutions (PCI or Firewire).

    If you are not changing to a laptop, the 2408 should work fine.
    (you didin't say what hardware you would be running on)

    I'm currenty having good results with an original 828 an my Powerbook.

    I'm not sure whether it will be mobile or not but I am looking toward Firewire audio units. I eventually want to go mobile with this but right now it will probably be on a G4 tower.

    You should be ok, be aware that if you can only get a G5(G4 towers are out of production) only the low-end model has standard PCI slots.

    The other G5s use PCI-x, and you would have to do the card swap with MOTU to be compatible.

    I have two MOTU 828s (each has 8 x ADAT, 8x line, 2xSPDIF 2 x super inputs (with phantom power and a dedicated pre).

    I use them with logic and at the moment the only problem I have is that Logic will (unlike DP) only let me use them one at a time.

    I have heard that this situation will be remedied with the New OS (Tiger) / upgrade of Logic (7.1).
