Default About to take the leap. Your thoughts?

I moved my studio from Washington State to Nashville. While out west, I used PT7 etc. With that, I also used a Command 8, 003 RACK. The COMMAND 8 being USB and the 003 being Firewire.

After reading about compatibility, I am understanding that
1. The 003 RACK is still supported with the latest PT version.
2. The Cmd8 is NOT supported but still works.

QUESTION: If I upgrade to the latest PT, do you think I will have any issues? Or should I try to get a version like 10 or 11?

I thought it was the other way around. 003 Not supported, Command 8 is supported. At least it's still there in the Peripheral setup as an option and mine works fine. It is definitely EOL with no tech support but the software still supports it.

AFAIK, both are not supported, but both still work with even the very latest PT(running a 003rack on Windows 10 with PT2019.12 here). In Nashville, you probably will need more inputs so plan to add an 8-channel lightpipe preamp to your setup. The Behringer ADA8200(the red one at around $200) is a great budget option. The Midas XL48(around $879) is absolutely killer on drums! I did a lot of recording in Nashville with 003, a lightpipe preamp and a DBX386 on SPDIF for 18 inputs Also, you'll need a way to get some good headphone mixes(happy players make better music)

The better I drink...the more I mix.....
