Default Digi 002 Support/Protools

Hi All,

I have been thinking about doing the black lion mod to my digi 002, but i'm wondering if it makes more sense to upgrade to the 003 to stay current? I noticed that digi has removed all references to the digi 002. Which makes me think they are about to stop supporting it.

I am running 7.4 on vista and have not had any problems. I would however like the cleaner sound of the hardware that you get from the black lion mods.

This is mostly rumor, but word seems to be that the BLA modded 002 sounds better than the stock 003. Now if you are talking about the rack versions, you can get the Tweakhead mod that cannot be done to the mixer version(not enough room inside the case) but both 002 and 003 can be upgraded(the 002 being a cheaper purchase now). As for the mixer versions, the 003 has way more control and functionality as a controller. Of course, either unit allows you to bypass the stock preamps with a Lightpipe and/or SPDIF pre. Check out the pricing and maybe write it out your options with dollar figures and see what makes the most sense for your setup.

With the exception of the 001 Digi is still supporting all of the LE interfaces...If I was buying new I would get a 003.

Having said that the 002's stand alone mode lets me use it as a small mixer for practicing and jamming and being able to simply luanch PT and have the system already configured is nice. While I might upgrade to a 003 at some point its doubtful that I would ever trade the 002 in. If the 003 had a standalone mode I would have upgraded some time ago.

003 vs Black lion modded 002....The 003 is considered to be better than a stock 002 and close to a BLM 002, the 003 has more potential over modding a 002 console. Unless you need the 002s standalone mode than I would say get a 003 and give it a whirl for a year until the warranty expires then get it modded if you feel its still lacking.

For the rack versions of the 002 and 003 there is the Signature Mod now available. If you don't want to mod and have an 003, use the BLA Micro Clock to clock the 003.
