Topic: will the ADI-2 PRO fit my upcoming home studio setup!?
currently i am using the HDSPe AIO PCIe card but as i am experiencing some serious issues with the card
i'd like to replace it with an USB solution. Even i am having issues with the card i'd like to stick with RME
as i am still very convinced about the quality, driver stability etc.
I am looking for a very simple Setup that will allow me to record my Fractal Audio AXE FX II/ Great RIVER ME-1 NV Preamp
using the analog XLR Inputs and monitoring everything with a pair of active ADAM P11A speakers.
My DAW is Cubase 8 PRO and i will soon be upgradfing to version 9.
Additionally i need to have at least one headphone out and a built in monitor controller section.
Right now most things seem clear but i am not sure if i can use the big volume knob as a "monitor controller"
and adjust the overall level for the analog XLR output.
Will the ADI-2 PRO work in such a setup or did i miss something!?
I am also looking forward to improve the overall sound quality, i guess the ADI-2 PRO should
be a step up from the AIO, or are these about on the same level?
I do understand that the ADI-2 PRO offers insane sampling rates but i am not sure how this
comes together in a "normal" 24bit/48000 recording setup.
I am also using my PC for streaming Video, listening to Music and especially gaming.
Will the ADI-2 PRO run flawlessly within any of these applications?
I almost forgot the most important part. I am aware that the ADI-2 PRO is not primatily designed to be
an audio interface but as fart as i understand the ADI-2 PRO is more than capable of this,
though i am not sure how it works latency wise. Is it possible to use sample libraries etc. without
a significantantly large latency?
Thanks in advance!
