Default settle this please 001vs2408


>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 ASAP
>I seem to be stuck:

>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
