I have a friend that owes me money for side work I did for him, he's an ex music engineer, he's pretty broke so he's willing to cut me deals on mint condition gear from his now closed down studio. I'm in the market for a new interface and pre's, since my old setup has ran out of life. Here's the deals he's working to hook me up with. Focusrite Saffire 56 & Octopre MKII $750 for both of them or I could buy his high-end setup which would be TWO Daking Mic Pre IV and a RME UFX all three pieces for $4800 I would have to save up money for 5 months to afford the more expensive setup but I could buy the cheaper setup today. What should I do? Is it worth the price difference for the better gear? Will I really hear a BIG difference? I'm not running a commercial business but I do record local bands and already have a great rep for making great sounding records for cheap, with my old budget setup.
