Hey guys, I would appreciate anyones opinion on a pro sounding converter. I'm new and I am buiding my own studio to record my bands records to sell on our own. (I will definately get a pro engineer, but I would like it to be done at my studio so that I can save $). I have Sonar 4 and I am currently using a Fostex 812 mixer, Delta 44 and Event 20/20. We play rock with alot of synth basses and hard guitar. I am looking at the RME Fireface or the RME ADI-8. Is Firewire just as good as a Card? Wish I could afford an Apogee 800 but not there yet. I want 8 inzandoutz because I eventually am going to buy different types of pre's to build a quility studio. Any suggestions 500 - 1000 price range?
