I had that same burner, it takes .00005 of a second to reach over and hit the record button to split .. but i had mine close to my setup.. that burner produces some good sounding mixes IMO. Only thing I didnt like about it (as mentioned earlier) it skips easy.Originally posted by Pascal
I've just recently started recording my mixes to cd (Get with the times Homer!!!!). I use a machine called (I think) HB Burn It 830.
It allows me to record my mixes the same as I would to a cassette tape and to me, the only downfall is that unless I have someone there, I don't indent my mixes track for track. Besides, I like leaving it as one long track anyways. My mix tells more of a story then.
I wouldn't use USB, it's not fast enough. Firewire soundcards such as motu 828 is the way to go. I've used this with my mac powerbook and bias peak 4.0 at several live shows and it is rock solid. just make sure you have plenty of extra HD space.Originally posted by beaker
i think your usb interface might be okay too since you're just recording a stereo signal.
Not exaclty. Although by the specs USB2 is indeed > FireWire400, in practice there is far too much overhead with USB. Firewire is superior, especially when dealing with anything time sensitive (Video/Audio/MIDI).Originally posted by DSV
USB 2 is faster than FireWire.
