Re: OT -- USB audio interfaces

Hi. I would steer away from usb audio interfaces. The ones I have tried
seemed to be really unreliable and cpu-heavy. To make live recordings I'm
actually buying a RME Hammerfall (it is a cardbus device + external
half/rack module). It gives me the possibility to record at a really high
quality up to 24 tracks on three adat In and Outs, with the Digiface 
and I know that there is the Multiface module that has balanced I/O + adat
I/O + SP/DIF and midi. It is really reliable and it has Asio2.0 drivers for
a real low latency. Plus, if you want you can connect with a PCI card the
same modules to your desktop, too. For informations you can take a look on
the www.RME.com site. It is cheaper than the various MOTU devices.
Or, if you have a firewire interface, you could take a look to www.motu.com
, since they have various Firewire devices.
