Hello, everyone I record classical music for a long time and already had a setup for recording. But recently, the radio station where I was working has stopped working and some equipment left with it. I've been using this setup: Digidesign Digi 003 Mackie Onyx 800R Macbook pro with Protools software Genelec speakers 8020 Some more mic pres... Sonosax SXPR (2), Schoeps VMS5U 16 channel analog multicable. So, with this setup I was recording 16 channel (24 b. 48 Khz) Now, just this equipment left: My own Digi002, Macbook pro, sonosax sxpr and schoeps preamps, pair of Genelec 1030A. Do not have any more 8 channel mic pre with adat link and multicable I have a dilemma, I want to renew my setup but cannot make a choice. Well, the budget is not big. I just have 1700 usd. and I want to have 16 track recording. Of course, I can buy focusrite octopre mkII and a multicable and continue recording as before. But I wonder if there are some more options. I want my setup to be based on Mac and Protools. My last choice was: Focusrite liquid saffire 56 plus focusrite octopre mkII, plus protools (9,10 or 11) and multicalbe. But I am afraid my budget is too low for such setup. May be someone could give me a better advise. Thanks a lot.
