Sitting here annoyed by my latest and greatest problem with my MOTU 828 MKII, and trying in vain to think of an alternative solution to my needs. I feel backed into a corner. What other company offers that amount of connectivity in their price range? RME? theirs is twice the price. I'm looking for a solution and the only other company's that offer : at least 5 analog stereo pairs spdif adat wordclock midi : is MOTU??!?! It's lonely here in the corner. Someone please come over here and let me out.
