Default DAW choices - help!

I may be interested in 001, but have the following concerns
>- I know ome of you TDM/DIGI experts can help me:
>
>I have a songwriter/project setup based around a Mackie 24x8 desk and (2)
>TASCAM DA-38 tape machines, and have been investigating a DAW for the
>purposes of MIDI (currently sequencing via hardware seq); and editing audio
>tracks. I am buying a G4 400 256RAM in the next month.
>
>I seem to be stuck:
>
>..... between Logic Platinum (+card); the new DIGI 001; and MOTU 2408/DP.
>
>The DIGI 001 piece looks great, and I am sold on the PRO TOOLS 5.0 LE interface and the PRO TOOLS concept as "industry standard".
But, it will be harder for me to import tape tracks into this
>config. (ADAT lightpipe only - I am TDIF)
>
>I like the idea of the TDIF's on the 2408, but it seems a Logic/PRO TOOLS
>combo is a more often used/common standard setup in pro studios - however
>it does not offer the sleek card/interface of the 2408 (great for dumping
>my tape tracks for editing!)
>
>Am I best mixing and matching (a la Logic sequencing, plus 2408 interfacing
>tape tracks, plus pro tools LE for RTAS plug ins/editing)? ....Wouldn't it
>be best to keep it all under one "brand"?
>
>Is host based processing/editing there yet? I cannot deal with crashing and
>burning - I like tracking to tape - i hear too many horror stories around CUBASE, etc.
>
>Should I just get a sequencer (LOGIC) and wait til I can afford TDM/MIXPlus?
>
>PLEASE HELP! Your thoughts and insight are greatly appreciated. thanks in
>advance.

Here's the setup I'm thinking about going with. I have a 2408 right now. I'm thinking about getting a Toolbox XP (which has Pro Tools LE software) .
Here's how I'm going to get it to work. Run my ADAT (or TDIF) tracks into Audio Desk software which comes with the 2408. Save it as an OMF file to transfer into Pro Tools LE software and then do all the editing and mixing in Pro Tools LE. The Audiomedia card comes into play, because in order to use the Pro Tools software you have to have either the Audiomedia card or digi001 system for DAE. So basically it's just there to run the software. I'm guessing that's the best way to do it, plus Audio Desk supports Sample Accurate sync, so it's all good! And Toolbox is at a great price of $595!

Digi, am I correct? Can this work?

Oh yeah...and I forgot..in regards to Logic. The latest version of Logic is very unstable. I used to use Logic alot...and the latest version crashed on me too much. It's a great software program, but just to damn unstable. I'm sure it'll get better over time, but this is the main reason why I'm switching to Pr Tools LE. Plus it's got MIDI sequencing now, which is why I'm sold. Way to go Digi!
