Anyone running a Ardour+console setup?
I suffer badly from RSI in my arms and have for a while thought about getting an analog console to work with despite having worked with computers for music all the time. My thinking is that I'm going to get a good board with good EQs and dynamics section so I don't have to reach for many plug-ins and thus preventing further injury to my arms. With this in mind I realized I could might as well make it a Linux DAW, something that I've been wanting to run for some time now. I'm thinking about getting one of the RME HDSP cards for this as they're in fact rather cheap and I don't know a lot of high-end cards that work under Linux.
Anyone running a setup like this? Or just a nice Linux/Ardour setup with a console or a nice board? What's your take on it? Everything playing nicely? Etc, etc...
