settle this please 001vs2408

>I have a songwriter/project setup based around a Mackie 24x8 desk and (2)

>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

I'm quite in the same situation of investing in a DAW A.S.A.P. Will the Digi001's MIDI sequencer be so powerful that I won't need to buy the (so called) top sequencer LA Platinum?? Could I have more details on it?
I'll be in NYC in about 2 weeks. Will I find one of these new machines to play with??

After seeing the 001 on tour -

looks great, all inclusive. if starting from scratch, this is a great system and you probably won't need logic....if you already use logic, i understad that emagic will be supporting the 001.

from the look of the system and its feature set, you would be best suited using it by itself as a stand alone, studio in a box. if you are just doing music (not synching to video/external tape decks) in the MAC, it will be a great, cost effective home studio solution...which I think is what DIGI had in mind.

This is not the gear to buy to try to integrate into a full blown, intricately designed setup, with too many different pieces talking to each other.

Think of it as the DIGI/Pro Tools MAC User interface version of a Roland VS1680 - you buy it for what it is and use it for that...when you are ready for more, you upgrade to TDM, add mic pre's, midi interfaces, etc.!!
