Re: still on the interface quest...

With a decent audio interface (multiple channels, good inserts, software 
mixer, etc), and if you were using a VST host or MAX/MSP, you could record 
directly to hard disc. I know Chainer did this. Not sure about EnergyXT or 
Plogue. In my max/msp system, I record directly to wav format, 32 bit. I 
record to aif as well.  It's a beautiful thing to have a wav file of your 
performance immediately after you are done. :)

....speaking of my max system, I've been going hog wild on building new 
patches. I have several granular patches now that kick ass, plus several 
pitch, filter. mod, and ring mod patches that have code that generate 
changes to parameters of my choice. It's amazing.  I chane the rate at 
random changes are made, plus the range in the parameters.  I'm getting to 
the point to where I can do everything on max that I originally did with 
my sophisticated VSTs, like PSP84, Hipno, monster bag, etc.
