In brief, I’m new to Ardour (semi-new to Linux) and I’m just now getting it with the Ubuntu Studio distro. I’ve used ProTools a fair amount in the past, but not for a few years now. Trying to get back into more serious audio stuff now.
Anyway, I have a PreSonus D8 that’s pretty old (probably 2010-ish) that I used to use with my Digi002 rack. My hope is to get a simple 2- or 4-channel interface that works well with Ardour so that I can:
a) use it for recording demos/rehearsals
b) hook the D8 into it for 8 extra channels to record full band performances
My first question is: does this setup sound feasible or am I missing some important consideration?
My second question is: if it sounds feasible, I would love some recommendations on a good interface to choose.
Thanks in advance! I’m looking very forward to getting into this world of non-proprietary audio software.
