I know this way somewhat discussed in another thread, but not exactly. What do you guys think would be better quality? 32 tracks to 16 PT bused D/A via AD8000 to a Mackie, or 32 individual D/A channels (no PT bus) of 888 to a Mackie? What I am trying to figure out is at what point does the busing on ProTools start to mess with the sound. I could afford two new 8000's or 4 used 888's for the D/A. Mixerman had stated that the busing ruins the sound, but he didn't say whether he was talking about the 2-bus, or 100 tracks into 6 buses or 64 tracks into 16 buses, or what?
