I’m teetering on the edge of buying an iDR32 as well, just looking into the recording setup…the Dante card sounds like the best bet, as long as I can get a laptop/PC/DAW combo stable enough to track 32 channels – would love to hear thoughts from anyone doing something similar with the mixracks (via MADI or otherwise).
My current recording medium is a Fostex D2424LV hard disk system which has been almost perfectly stable, but is getting on, weighs much more than the iDR32, and takes an inordinate amount of time to transfer files, so I’m hoping I can find a way to unclutter my life with this rack solution!
PS I’m initially not planning on getting a control surface, but mixing via a laptop/PC (separate to the one that will run the Dante recording setup I’d imagine)
