So I am about to have a major studio makeover and I would love your advice.
Currently, I am running a Toft ATB24 with an Orion32 into Studio One. This has been a great setup for some years but since my PC upgrade last year my Orion32 only now works in 24ch mode and after many hours with Antelope support, I have been told, there isn't too much they or I can do to fix it.
My plan is to sell the Orion32 and Toft and go down the path of an all PreSonus setup. The thing I am having trouble trying to figure out is which would be a better option for my needs? I have been tossing up between the Quantum, a couple DP88's and faderport16 or a StudioLive32 Series iii.
I do a lot of tracking in the studio with live bands and a lot of drums tracking as well so I would like to have at least 24ch, with the option of being able to insert outboard equipment if I need/want.
What are your thoughts between the two setups? Latency issues, preamps, converters, advantages, disadvantages, etc.
Any insight would be much appreciated, thank you.
