I'm going to be adding another computer to my studio setup to function solely as a Virtual Instrument host.
I'd like to have at least 8 channels piped into my main recording computer.
The lowest latency possible for real time playing with a band is a big concern....as is budget.
I have an opportunity to buy an original MOTU 828 FW interface for a song. I also was originally considering FX Teleport which is very budget friendly.
So the question is will the 1st generation MOTU 828 give me lower real time playing latency then Fxteleport?
If i only used the ADAT lightpipe out of the MOTU, what kind of latency could i expect on a either a 2.13 core2duo PC or a Dual 2.0 Mac G5 (PPC) as the VI machines?
Thanks in advance.
