Hello, At our church we are currently running a Yamaha 01v96 w/ two outboard devices that expands our channel capacity to 32. We are looking for a recording solution for live sound as well as some "studio" recording. We've looked at the HD24 by Alesis quite a bit and are impressed with the reviews and other info, but we aren't sure how this will integrate with the 01V. I spoke with a few retailers about the two and got mixed information. One retailer said that the 01V would only output 16 channels via ADAT digital w/ an 8 channel expansion card. He said the 16 channel card would not work with the 01V. In addition, he said we would not need a wordclock to run things. The other retailer said that they could provide accessories to get us 24 channels out of the 01V to the HD24 digitally and that we would need a word clock. Also, one of them recommended against the HD24XR saying that the 96khz sample rate was not necessary. Is this true? What are the advantages / disadvantages? Thank you so much for your help and input, we greatly appreciate it.
