Default Re: digi 001 vs. MOTU 1224

Not quite Dan, Just a few things to be aware of. AMIII is NOT a host system. it runs off the card. That means there's NO latency with 4.3 AMIII. There is a TC ruler and you can pull the frame rate up or down. And 4.3 AMIII Locks to REAL TC not midi TC.

With 4.3 AMIII you can have 128 virtual tracks. this is very important if you are trading with a PT MIX system running more than 24 tracks. LE can only have 24 tracks and NO duplication of voices. So If I want to create a 25th track to store muted tracks forget it.

LE also can't select dis connected regions. In 4.3 you could get around this with the nudge. Not in LE, When you nudge into a new region - it will write over it.

I think 4.3 AMIII users will find some of their favorite ways to work gone in LE.

Thanks for all the responses. I especially appreciate Digi's giving me a detail post regarding MOTU vs. the 001. I kinda wish they had discussed the 1224 vs the 001 more specifically, since that was what I was most interested in. I know the 001 compares very favorably to the 2408.
Alas, I have decided to go with the 1224. I did a lot of research, and came to the conclusion that most of the boxes around the $1000 mark where comparable. So, I choose MOTU since I'm running their software and I can take advantage of hardware's features more fully than if I ran the 001 as a direct I/O. Also, I already have an 8 in/8 out MIDI i/o, so the 1 in/1 out on the 001 was useless to me. The only real advantage of the 001 are the preamps, but I can deal with that.

If I made a bad choice, you'll all be hearing from me.
