Topic: MADIFace Pro, UFX III, and 12mic for remote recording rig?
I have a MADIface Pro and 12 mic, connected via MADI optical. Works great. I do some remote recording where it's useful to set the 12mic on stage and then run 100 feet of MADI to the MADIface Pro and laptop in a separate room. Then the MADIFace Pro itself is great on its own for simpler remote recording and performance projects.
I've been waiting for the successor to UFX+ so I can add more I/O.
Now that it's here, what I'd like to do is stack a UFX III and 12 mic in a 2u enclosure to use in my studio and also as a flexible stage box for remote recording/performance, with the MADIface Pro as my interface.
Before pulling the trigger, can someone confirm that this setup will work--basically that I can use the UFX III as a standalone MADI device?
Here is the chain:
Laptop (USB) <---> MADIface Pro (MADI optical out) ---> UFX III (MADI out) ----> 12 Mic (MADI optical out) --> MADIface Pro
I guess I wouldn't have access to Totalmix FX, since that is not available on the MADIFace Pro, but that's ok.
I haven't used DURec but I would like to. If I understand correctly, I would have to manually start/stop recording directly on the UFX III rather than via Totalmix.
Anything else I should consider?
