I'm in a little bit of a pickle.... I have the opportunity to purchase a Tascam MSR24 1" machine for about $800. It is mint with zero troubles. I was thinking of picking up this machine and in a few months getting the Toft Audio Trident ATB 24 channel board. My plan was to record and start mixing analog and then dump to digital for all of my edits, automation, reverbs, and delays. Then I got to thinking.....what if I spend that money on really nice preamps and stay digital?!? I'm stuck here....any suggestions? What would you do? Any info on this tape machine? Would I benefit the same as just getting really high end pres?
