hey guys I have been doing tons of recording research, and the most confusing purchase of everything seems to be interfaces, there seem to be things such as tried and true classic mics and pres but people have wildly different opinions on interfaces. anyway I have 2000 dollars to buy one piece of really nice lasting gear for myself. Because I have no way of getting audio into my computer that would have to start with an interface compared to a nice mic, or top shelf pre. I record everything myself, and never use anymore than 2 inputs at one time. I hear that the duets 2 inputs pres and conversion is pretty much the same as the ensemble. And I also read that you can plug in an external pre as well. My question is this, if I bought either, would be conversion needs at least be taken care of for a long time? None of the other interface names really peak my interest since many guys end up running a rosetta with them anyway, a lot of roads go back to apogee anyway. So if I intend to get really nice mics and preamps down the road are these good routes? If alls I record is myself and don't need tons of stuff going on, what would I be missing out on with the duet compared to the ensemble?
