For some years I have been using a Roland VS2480. All of the digital pieces in my control room are synced by a Lucid clock; all audio equipment in the studio is on Equitech balanced power. I'd like to think that I've given the Roland converters the best opportunity to do their job. I don't have any complaints. Nevertheless, I have been thinking of changing platforms, and moving to one of the recording software packages; perhaps the Nuendo II that I own, but that could involve a hefty investment in a computer and A/D/D/A converters. So, I am also thinking of tracking with the Roland, and moving .wav files into the computer for mixing. This, of course, means that I continue using the Roland converters. Does anyone have experience in having used VS2480 converters as well as converters from Apogee or Lynx (and a comparative opinion)? I trust that these stand-alone converters are terrific, but are they that much better than the Roland converters? Thank you.
