    I am a sound a sound engineer for a local church and we will soon be upgrading our old gl3300 to an ilive t112 (probably with an idr48 but we haven’t decided this yet) and I wish to do multitrack recordings of live events. I have my own acer asp[ire 3680 laptop and a more powerful custom built tower both with ardour running on a jack server in Ubuntu studio. what is the best way (for low cost and high quality) to do multitrack (anything from 16 to 40 tracks) with this setup

    Dante add-on card for the iLive. $1700 for 64 channel, 48@24 bidirectional recording. Will pipe it right into your desktop via Ethernet

    … my recommendation: m-waves card [:)]

    you get superbly programmed driver from waves (asio+coreaudio) and can record/play back 64 channels w/ 24bit/48khz

    take a look therefore …

    Why would you pick Waves over Dante? Cost is identical but Waves is less compatible with other technologies?

    andy95 ask for a solution on Ubuntu/Linux.
    how many Driver are aviable for Dante on Linux? zerro!

    BTW: the discussion about SoundGrid/Dante is
    tedious. Both are Proffesional and reliable.

    +1 Dante

    Unless you are actually going to use WAVES plugins, I would go DANTE too. Alot of expansion options come with it.

    Indeed. Unfortunately, I don’t think DVS is supported under Linux. Nor have I heard or read about any plans to do so.

    Your choice now is to either suck it up and install Windows, or look at using a 24ch ADAT connection instead. As much as I am a Linux fan, my preference is strongly for the former.

    actually, MADI is probably the way to go with andy95’s setup…..https://ardour.org/realFAQ

    Apologies. I totally forgot this approach! Definitely the best one for Linux. RME have probably the best supported platform for Linux out of all the pro audio interface manufacturers. I should know that, being a DIGI96/8 owner myself..
