Quote from: Elantric on October 31, 2012, 08:35:20 AM........play 3 hour gigs....Later I can import all the separate Wave files from all the above recorders into a DAW, Line up the tracks - and have a good multitrack recording.
Quote- i know to lineup audio tracks can be tricky, unless you have a click count-in on all the tracks.....so do you do anything when you are recoding to get such a reference point?
Quotealso, this might sound like a silly question, but theoretically there should be no time drift, even over 3 hrs...is that your experience?
Quote from: Elantric on November 05, 2012, 09:34:49 AMI still view these as Toys - not tools, since by the time I lug an iPad 64 3G($865) +CCK ($40) +Powered USB Hub ($20)+ multichannel USB Audio Interface ($499) - its about the same cost and setup time as decent laptop running a real DAW. (Lenovo W520 + MOTU 828MK3 running Reaper DAW)
QuoteI'm just wondering though, if you go away from the traditional desk type mixer and used the rack-mount audio interface and a laptop DAW to control... am i right to assume that with rack units (like the Moto 828 or presonus 1818, etc) that the actual audio is processed in the rack, and does not route back to the Laptop (so that laptop is only a control device), and therefore you'd only need serious grunt if you are recording to the laptop at high quality... have i got that right?
