Default Can I use a vox preamp as an interface

I have an Avalon mic preamp that I want to
Use for the 96k A/D converters to transfer my stereo mixes from studer 1/4 inch tape to digital to master.

I have other interfaces, but no
Other 96k I don’t think.

Am I able to use the Avalon as an interface or will this create problems? Or alternatively, if I use my digi 003, will the 48 A/D not suffice for tape transfer for mastering through software?

Avalon doesn’t make audio interfaces, so no, you can not.

I'm not exactly clear on what you need, so here is some general info re the 003. The SPDIF IO can operate at up to 96K. This might allow you to run the Avalon thru high-end converters at 96K to feed the 003 SPDIF input. You can also connect the Avalon analog output to one of the TRS line inputs of the 003. This allows you to record thru the Avalon into a 96K session(or lower sample rates). The 003 converters are adequate and you will still get the flavor of the Avalon. Personally, I see no reason to record at 96K and have had many commercial releases at 48K with happy clients

BTW, probably best to refer to it as a vocal preamp as most of us think of guitar amplifiers when someone mentions Vox
Gigabyte X79/intel i7 3930K, 32GB RAM, HD/Native, 192 IO

The better I drink, the more I mix
