Howdy, This is my first post ever, so please forgive any unintentional tramplings on etiquette. I'm trying to decide which digital recorder to buy. I have a few general criteria: 1. The capability of producing pro-studio quality masters. (Whether or not my skills develop to that point is still to be determined.) 2. The ability to take what I've recorded to a pro studio for them to import, re-mix and master. 3. Twenty-four tracks minimum. 4. Lots of input/output choices 5. Easy interfacing with a PC. 6. As self-contained as possible, so the necessity for other devices, plug-ins, etc., would be as minimal as possible. (Ssuggestions about any other necessary devices would also be much appreciated.) I've narrowed it down to the following three models: Roland VS-2480cd Akai DPS24 Korg D32XD They all look great in the brochures, so I'd sure appreciate any insight , comments, suggestions, etc. as to which one to buy. And by all means please let me know if there's a different model I should be considering instead. Thanks in advance.
