Oh yeah this all for working in the 16bit/44.1 domain...

I dont neccasarily need 24bit/96khz recording at the moment...

I know I could go laptop and firewire i/o etc, but id rather not use a laptop in the field...

I like to work on audio at home... But of course a lappy for the road would be nice to use for editing if im far from home. Recording would be too time consuming
