    I cannot afford to get ProTools HD, I need at least 24 analog out in order to mix outside the box on analog mixer and using outboard gear

    so my question is, is MOTU HD as good or nearly as good as PTHD? or at least is it way better thatn using a Digi002????

    Thank u so much!!!

    Despite its price and its following, I'm not a fan of the sonic qualities of the DigiDesign HD I/O, and you won't get that number of channels out of a Digi002R!

    The MOTU HD192 is probably fine. For myself, when the contract specifies mixdown on an analog desk and/or use of particular outboard gear, I use one of my Alesis HD24XRs as an ADAT-analog interface. You could do worse than consider that route. It's very cost-competitive, even factoring in the need for a PC interface card with 3xADAT ports, and matches anything else I have heard in the price range for conversion quality.

    thank u very much Boswell, the thing is that as I already use Protools LE with the Digi002, what I plan to do is transfer the session to mix, to DP and use the HD192 as multitrack outputs... is not that xpensive, I think

    talking about alesis, would you recomend the Masterlink 9600 as a mixdown recorder?? like if it was a half inch tape of some sort???

    thank u

    I'm not in a position to recommend the Masterlink 9600 as I've never used one. There could well be a reason for that.

    I had assumed you would be re-digitizing your mixer outputs with the PT rig. Doing this would give you more options for generating mix files to send to your mastering house than using a dedicated 2-channel recorder.

    yup, that's what I've been doing actually, recording the mixdown in a stereo track in the same session, but I don't know, I feel like I'm missing something

    thank you for your advise, I apreciate it alot!!!
