Default Best way to record 24 tracks

I am thinking about getting an Alesis HD24 just to be able to record 24 live tracks to later dump into PT. I have a 002 with a extra 8 tracks for recording via an ADAT 8 in preamp which gives me 16 live tracks. I was wondering what other options I might have for capturing up to 24 live tracks. Cost is a bit of an issue.

Thanks

Jerry

The max you'll get is 18 simultaneous inputs with a 002/003. 8 mic/line, 8 ADAT, 2 SPDIF.

Is there any cheaper 3rd party option other than the Alesis HD24

Thanks

Not sure about this but I know people are using Reaper in Rewire mode into PT. Maybe you can use another interface for Reaper (like an inexpensive Firepod) and record into it (Reaper via firepod) and PT at the same time? If not in rewire mode, can you midi sync them so start and stop under 'midi control'?

the cheapest option will probably be 3x firepods and reaper.
