I'm supposed to figure out what I want for xmas with a $200 budget. So much for surprises. I was interested in getting a small interface to use here at home. Nothing fancy - one or two mic inputs, quality DI, headphone outs, MIDI optional. I've boiled my choices down to the Tascam US-122 or the M-Audio Firewire Solo. There will be times when I'll need to work here at home on sessions created at my studio, so it could be 30+ audio tracks and possibly some MIDI/VSTi tracks. With that in mind, my question is whether or not the USB connection create any problems down the road? Can the US-122 handle high track counts? This question arises from the soundonsound.com website: I trust Tascam quality and the US-122 has more features, so I would really like to go that route but that USB connection seems like it will be a definite hinderance. My computer is a PC, AMD XP 2500+, 1.5GB RAM, two big harddrives, running Nuendo 2 (maybe N3 if I upgrade.) Thanks!
