Looking for some advice, I'm in need of a new recording rig and I'm considering getting an iMac.
Does anyone know of any rumours a new one is one the way? Should I wait?
I think my current pc system will have to do if a new iMac release is not too far off.
I'm a bit torn between a fireface UFX, MOTU 896mk3 and a UA apollo. Please help!
I've been reading reviews of the three interfaces the last days, but can't really decide since I have no experience with either of them. I guess pricing is a factor but not as important as reliability/driver issues.
Edit: Is getting an iMBP a viable solution instead of the iMac?
I was in about the same situation with you 8 years ago. I can't believe it's been that long I was torn between the Fireface 800 which was just released back then and the motu 828, either the mk1 or mk2, I can't remember.
I went for the fireface in the end and it's still running strong after all these years. Like I said before, I had ZERO issues with it. I went through 3-4 computers with different OS's and the damn thing worked perfectly on all of them. I cannot recommend it enough for its reliability, RME is renown for that. It's really solid, like a rock.
I don't have any experience with motu or the UA so I can't comment on them. What I can tell you is that motu supposedly works very well with macs, at least that was the deal back then
