New gear

Hi Peter


The M32R is actually not much bigger than the 01V, just a bit taller. Of course, it's hugely more powerful and especially flexible, hence I could replace two 01V with one M32R. The two stage boxes occupy 5U total in the rack. You’re probably referring to its big brother, the M32 – that is a different beast…

Hey Martin,


> I just retired two 01V, replaced with the Midas that I recently mentioned plus two stage boxes - saved a bit of space, but also replaced the MOTU PC Interfaces that had served me well for many years... I case somebody is interested, there's a 2408, a 308 and two 1224 to go (plus one PCIx424 interface - the catch is in the name: It needs a PCIx slot, which is hard to find in a new system these days). I haven't used the Midas much in the new studio setup yet, but I definitely prefer a hands-on interface to mixing over any computer interface.


I recently got a Thunderbird 3 interface for my PC. Either I get a MOTU 16A, or an 24Ai. The latter only connects via USB (or Ethernet, but that's not really going to work). Both are rather pricey, but not nearly as pricey as the competition.


That 01V never really worked out for me.


The M32R looks nice. Very big, but nice.

Should you ever do so, asking prices on Ebay are €1500+, and one recently went via auction for €960.


The Microwave has asking prices that start around €1500 as well (and also much higher), and one recently went for €1300. There's one ending soon, like today or tomorrow, sitting at €811 last time I checked. But I actually prefer the brighter sound of the MW II.
