wantazi Posted July 6, 2001 Share Posted July 6, 2001 Hi all! I'd like to know if I can realistically use a 2408 mkII in place of a digital mixer. The unit has all the I/O that I need, but I'm concerned that the inherent latency be a showstopper. I want to hook up my active monitors directly to the MOTU so that I play and monitor everything through the MOTU without any outboard mixer. I would consider buying a digital mixer, but there are very few under $3k with enough digital inputs for my needs, and the price of the MOTU can't be beat for all the connectivity it offers. The upcoming Tascam D24 looks promising, but I'd rather do without a bulky mixer if I can help it. I also figure that all digital mixers exhibit at least some latency of 2-3 ms for the A/D D/A conversions, processing, and the like. I would like to know what kind of latency and monitoring performance I can realistically expect with the MOTU. My studio is modest with a number of hardware synths (no softsynths or plug-ins) with various forms of analog and digital outputs to be run directly into the MOTU. I will be using Logic Audio Platinum running on a 1GHz PIII PC dedicated to audio applications only. Any comments/feedback would be much appreciated.
