I posted this suggestion thread, but since then, I've realized I have no idea if the Studio 24R is actually capable of everything I was suggesting already, so I'm just going to ask point-blank. Is the Studio 24R good for studio DAW recording?
My old setup several years ago consisted of microphones going into a snake, the snake going into an ancient analog mixer, and then outputting into an audio interface and on to the computer. I record everything in 24-bit 192 KHz so I'm editing the cleanest, most pristine material I'm capable of getting.
My idea for a new setup would be to use the StudioLive 24R as a glorified snake, running ethernet from there to the computer (or router, or however that works), and then using the computer as the console, recording live tracks in Studio One. But I have no idea if this is possible. Am I limited to 24-bit/ 48 KHz? Or can I still record in 24-bit 192 KHz (or better)? Will I need other hardware? Should I just get a StudioLive Series 3 and an audio interface? Am I better off just using my old system?
