    Guys, I need your wisdom…

    I’m in the process of updating and reconfiguring my studio… I need to do full orchestra mockup arrangements/compositions using sampled libs.

    Would you guys recommend using a hardware mixer with this setup or mix entirely within the computer with a DAW? What do you think would be the best solution for this application?

    Config #1:

    Computer A: Audio Sequencer (SX, Nuendo, Logic…) w/ RME 9652 card.
    Computer B: Gigastudio w RME 9652 card.
    Connected both RME’s w lightpipe cables.
    Use a good A/D-D/A card for analog inputs/outputs and monitoring.
    Use a Mackie control w an extender to facilitate the mix.

    Config #2:

    Use a Digital console (Yamaha 02R96, Mackie DB8, DM-24….?)
    Computer A: Sequencer w RME 9652 card.
    Computer B: Gigastudio w RME 9652 card.
    Connected both RME’s w lightpipe cables to the Mixer.

    Config #3 ?????

    What works well and sounds good? Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    I\'m going with a computer set up.

    Mixers are just about the same as a computer interface, and you can keep expanding the computer.

    I\'m going with MotU 24I/O setups.

    You\'re going ADAT lightpipe, everyone seems to love the RME\'s. I think they\'re great too. I\'m jsut looking at my budget, and I get better prices on other output sources for my upcoming gigamachines.

    Thanks for sharing your wisdom. You\'re confirming the direction where I\'m heading to. I agree, today you could definetely mix virtually inside the computer.
