Hi everybody,

Happy owner of an uln8 3D and 2882 3D, i need more inputs now.
It's not clear for me to know what is the best way.
My first idea was to take a new interface, lio8 probably.
But I think I could also use the AES inputs of my uln8 and take a preamp/converter device.
For example an Audient asp800.
But I think the Audient quality of preamps and converters will be under MH and if I want to take a high quality preamp/converter (with AES outputs), it will cost at least the price of a new MH interface.

What do people do when wanting to add some inputs?

I am interested if you wanted to share your experiences and opinions.

Best regards,

Jean-Philippe

I would go with the Audient or the Focusrite (I had some issues with one of those Audient units) 8 channel pre/with digital outs and get the corresponding card for your Mh unit. Will be the cheaper way to go and will most likely not be the limiting factor in your signal chain.

Keep It Up!
