Should I buy a DA7?
I am a digi 001 user for now (Mac), hope to upgrade to mix+ when it's more affordable.
Currently. I hate the complexity of my Roland 168rc!
I don't have a lot of time to monkey around trying to get gear to work.
I want to record!
The contol surface...pre's, authentic studio and room to grow
sure look tempting.
Should I just get an apogee rosetta, mic pre and a mini hui instead

Re: Should I buy a DA7?
The DA7 is a little bit complicated to get going. You have to change some internal settings to get it to emulate a HUI on the first eight faders. It's like any other piece of gear, you have to learn how to get around it, but keep in mind that the DA7 does a LOT of stuff, so the learning curve might be pretty high. Good converters though, and the price on these things has gone SOOOOOO low!

Re: Should I buy a DA7?
Thanks for the input about the DA7. I have been reading through all the documentation
that I can find on da7.com. Manual, upgrades etc and I feel as long as the manual is acurate
I can figure it all out. They have a users forum so thats a big plus.
I fought with that Korg 168rc manual (it might as well have been written in Japanese)
I must admit that I get confused with that digital I/O section of the 001 too.
I'm gonna have to read it a few more times I guess
Yeah the DA7 is a great value! As long I can use it for some basic functions to start out
(mic pre's for the digi) I should be pleased.
