Opus, Son of Smawg sent me to you for help designing a DAW system based on the ANUS platform. I know little about it except what I've seen posted in this forum, and I have about $2K-2500 to work with. SOS said to give you a list of what I have currently, so here goes. Kurzweil K2000 and k1200 Alesis RA150, 3630 compressor, nanoverb Acoustic 3311 monitors Mackie 1202VLZ Rode NT1 condensor Tascam 202MKIII dinosaur cyrix 6x86 166Mhz, 32RAM, 2.5Gb HDD Cakewalk Proaudio v5.0 I have been looking at the Digi001/PTLE set up to go to my next step, but SOS said the ANUS will do so much more and be righteously expandable. This being the case, and being able to come in at the above mentioned budget, what are the specifics? I especially want to know, what kind of I/O's, the sonic quality of the A/D D/A converters, can I get two MIDI I/O's, mobo specs, CPU RAM etc. to get the best bang for the buck. I sure would appreciate it!
