Just wondering if anyone had tried the 828 vs the 828 mkII. Ive been recording with a pci audiophile 2496 in my pc for awhile. Its now time for me to move on up to multiple inputs. I know the mkII has adat, and the original doesnt, but i also heard that the originial wont go up to 96khz sampling. anyone know if this is true? My setup will be an 8 mic preamp running into the MOTU, then if i get the mkII, id eventually pick up an 8 mic xlr-adat preamp, taking me up to 16 inputs, which is prolly all id ever need at this level. im primarily going to be recording on my pc where i have cubase and reason... but i will also be using an iBook im buying in a few months, of course the only app id have would be garage band, since i dont really have the cash to buy logic or any of the other mac programs after i get done buying all my nifty hardware. also, has anyone here ever tried an 828 mkII as a mixer, run into an amp, and then out to speakers, im thinking about doing that and i just want to make sure im not missing something...Id like to be able to have my own pa, and this seems like the most equipment efficient way for me. anyways, any input, suggestions, other options would be helpful. thanks.
