Topic: Switching from Babyface Pro FS to MADIface Pro
I have a Babyface Pro FS, but I hit the limit of its' inputs and outputs. I have an external AD/DA converter connected via ADAT, which is also capable of talking MADI. It has 16 Inputs and 16 Outputs, so at the moment I can use just half of it. My idea is to switch to a MADIface Pro, but comparing the technical specs, the Babyface Pro FS has slighty better DA converters on the phones out. One of the main reasons I went for the Babyface Pro FS were its' phone converters as I am working with (high-impedance) headphones most of the time.
I wonder if it's worth waiting for an update of the MADIface pro, or if this will not happen in the near future (next 12 month or so).
Another option would be to go for a Digiface USB and continue using ADAT. However, using this solution I would have to create an Aggregate Device on macOS (Babyface + Digiface), so I would not be able to mix all the channels in TotalMix if I'm right, which is not ideal either.
The last option would be to just use the MADIface Pro and live with the slightly worse DA converters on the phones out.
Any comments/ideas/suggestions on that are appreciated
