  1. my guess is that Clip 2 is the Apogee, Clip 1 is the Soundblaster... but i must say i'm baffled by the similarity.
  2. yes! wow, so that's a lot more cumbersome than i would've imagined - a TRS lead for every channel i want to re-route. oh well, makes sense. thanks for the help
  3. okay then... wouldn't the preamps in the ProFire (assuming that's the interface) colour the sound as well? it was my understanding that anything connecting via the XLR inputs on the back of my ProFire would be utilizing the preamps in it, thus being coloured to some degree, thus negating the use of better quality preamps in the first place.... i'm sure i'm wrong somewhere here, but i don't know where! thanks for your patience
  4. wow, thanks for all the great info here guys! i may look into getting some nice preamps down the track then. i'm still hazy on something though... when you refer to a "standalone preamp", do they include converters? If i buy one of these preamps, how do they connect to my interface - ADAT?
  5. hi all. i'm currently using an M-Audio ProFire 2626 for all my recordings that require more than 2 simultaneous inputs... it does the job, and sounds acceptable to my ears. what i'm wondering is how much of a difference is there in terms of sound quality, stability and other things between a consumer interface (M-Audio ProFire 2626) and a higher-end "prosumer" model (perhaps and RME Fireface 800). I will be expanding my array of studio gear in the near future, and want to know how these more expensive interfaces make up for the steeper price - is it just the preamps? the software? i want my future purchases to be long term, and i would like to invest in gear that will be at home in a professional studio... ...some guidance would be great
  6. bugger that, transportation would be a massive bitch
