The wife and i are moving, selling the house, and will be renting a much smaller place for a spell while we figure out the next big move. Downside: my studio will be tiny Upside: I've been running a "downsized" version of my studio for a few weeks in preparation, and quite like the stealthier approach. Hell, i hadn't even turned on most of my outboard gear in months if not years. More upside: I'll have the cash for a few tasty purchases. I want to replace my increasingly unattractive old MOTU 2408 Mk II with a kickass interface. Leaning toward Lynx, but not sure I "get" the lack of a breakout unit, hardware metering, etc. Feedback and advice would be appreciated. I think Scott, for one, is running Lynx. Also looking at my options in a stereo pre, Vintech and Universal Audio units are both speaking to me right now, but I've yet to demo either. Thoughts? Also looking for a lean, mean, SMALL compute workstation. Tips appreciated. Whatever solution i go with for an interface, real-time/flexible monitoring is desirable so i can pack up my Mackie SR 24 (which has basically been an oversized monitoring station for years here). Whatever i end up with, i'm looking forward to generating better audio in less space, and digging the challenge.
