    Wanted 2 knno from others about which end is more improtant 2 have(if u have 2 have just the 1)?

    We are a hip-hop production team/company. We make beats using mostly samples and keyboard. So we dont do any live recording. No special outboard gear(yet). We track using our beat machines(MPC/Triton) patched directly 2 our Digi 002. Thats it.

    We do have a Benchmark DAC-1, just want 2 kno which end is more important 2 hear whats goin on... before and after goin in to our computer.

    And do u think we need 2 have an A/D converter?

    I'm not too sure what you're asking. Your digi 002 is an A/D converter, as it converts the analog inputs (whether TRS or XLR) into digital to be sent into the computer. What are you trying to accomplish?
