Just upgraded my studio with a brand new Focurite liquid Saffire 56 and an Octopre MkII.
With every changes to my gear, I try to better myself. I band project is coming soon, they're gonna track in my studio and mix and master at another place. So, I need to export wave files at there best.
With my last setup (with m-audio delta cards) I used 24bit 44.1khz because it was hard to get a low latency tracking otherwise.
Option 1: Portable Recorder (Zoom H2n)
I want a configuration solution for just stereo recordings (piano). I would submit the problem here.
Rack 003 Digidesing Fireware
Apogee Mini-Me (S / PDIF) 24 bit-96 kHz
Apogee Low-DAC (S / PDIF) 24 bit-192 kHz
I need to register to 24 bits-96 kHz and use the clock of Mini-Me (much higher than the rack 003).
I need 16 IO and an interface. The Prism ADA-8RX or less expensive RME are in the running for me.
I mention mastering because I know you guys are the end result and could save me grief. You may have some for-warned advise that I should hear before I make the plunge.
Does anyone know why this happens: e.g. I record a note (D) on my flute at 24bit - 48KHz, it plays back as the same note in Cubase 4 LE then when I mix the track down to 16bit - 44KHz and play the new .wav file in windows media player or VLC the sound is much sharper in pitch nearly a F.
I dont know why this is happening. . I use a sm58 + Lexicon Alpha studio to record audio (as recommended here 'and I love it' ).
