Routing analog & digital audio between two DAWS

Hey all,

I'm doing the planning for my new system.
I have magix Samplitude pro x, and I'm considering Pro Tools HD12.

Magix would be the main capture/compose/edit system due to high track count and clean coding.

PTHD would be primarily for mixing (mainly volumes and panning). Since it does 10 video tracks and 7.1 it's the unfortunate (expensive) choice.

Basically id like to pipe the edited audio from Sam into PTHD via the digital outs RME babyface -into- Focusrite Scarlett 18i20.

How to Embed Data on MP3/Digital Audio Files?

Basically I want to know if there's a way to write info to digital format music files. I want to put in the artist/song/isrc code/album art and possibly even lyrics. I've heard talk of this but am actually to where I want to do it now so any insight would be much appreciated.

I know I can add at least some these to a CD using CD design software like CD Architect 5.2 (which I have); is there a way to add album art or lyrics to a CD, as well?

thanks so much!

is dishing out thousands on Digital audio equipment a REAL investment

I mean... like does it really make sense?
What's the real point in spending 5k on an interface.. when theres just going to be a "better" one later?
I mean how clear can audio REALLY get? Or is it about having the most options?
What is it that they found a way to make that much less hiss on the audio track? its MORE crystal clear?
