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.
