Hello all!! I am a new member and have to say that this is such a great board! You all have put some great tips out here for amature audio guys like myself to use. So here is my deal. I have finally decided to build my first DAW. Ya, it has taken me a while to put down all my analog gear. Just looks like two much damn fun to be missing out on. I am fimiliar with PC recording and editing (Nuendo) but have never built my own PC for audio. Opus, I am going to follow your ANUS. HA THAT JUST CRACKS ME UP!!! I ordered my Asus P4B266 MOBO tonight with a P4 1.6a CPU. My next choice is what audio interface to use? I was looking at the Delta 1010 and the DSP2000. Both are real affordable (under $500). I like the DSP2000 because you can buy their interface with TDIF for Tascam connection. I have a large collection of DA-88 tapes and would like to transer them over. The only other interface that I know I can do that with is the Motu but I also know I should stay away from them with the PC. Also, Motu is twice as expensive. What do you all think is the better interface for me? Also, which OS should I be running with the ANUS system and Nuendo? Opus, I am sure that I will be returning soon (with a little less hair) with some questions for you as I start building my system. Hope you dont mind. Thanks all!!!!
