Q about mobile recording and Core 2 Quad?
As you can see in my signature, my system is quite old. A Digi001 hanging on a P4 3.06GHz machine.

For me it works ok, but what I want is mobility and many Inputs (for drum recordings for excample).

So my possibilities for the sound side are:

---M-Audio FW 1814


What would you prefer? IMHO Digi´s interface is too big for mobility but it may have better converters, right?
LE is included with its IF, MP not...

Or should I use my Digi001 for drum trackíng and after that, for Bass Guit Vox-tracking, should i take another, smaller Interface with better sound and lower price and less inputs (at least 4)...???
next thing - i threw an eye on a Macbook. I´m a PC user, in work PT runs on a Mac, so i know AND like "the other side" also.
And now I come back to my subject: should i wait for Macbooks with Core 2 Quad´s (whether they come or not)?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Q about mobile recording and Core 2 Quad?
I would go with a 002R or 003R. This way you get a current version of Protools LE and don't need to spend more money to buy M-Powered. It is a little big for mobile purposes but since you'll need to bring your microphones, cables, power supply, notebook, external firewire hard drive anyways, you're not really saving that much stuff to carry with a smaller interface anyways. Folks here really like the Macbook Pro's for Protools so I guess that's the way to go if you're planning to upgrade. I wouldn't wait for the Core 2 Quad PowerBooks since it hasn't even been announced yet. Go get something now and make music.

Hi Clausiii,

I don't think either of those interfaces is very good for mobile multi-track recording. The M-audio thing only has 2 preamps, and the digi002/003 only has 4 preamps and costs $1000+ (it has 8 simultanious inputs, but only 4 of those inputs have preamps, the other 4 are "direct").
