Topic: Fireface UFX Direct to USB as redundant recording?
I am currently looking into purchasing a Fireface UFX as a mobile recording setup for festivals, etc. I just wanted to confirm something... My hope is to use the UFX as a standard USB interface going into Pro Tools and at the same time be recording to a hard drive via the front panel Direct to USB port. The manual doesn't quite confirm that this is possible.
Beyond that, is there anyone specifically using this same setup? Thoughts about stability, etc? The idea is that although the UFX itself is not truly redundant-- at least if the computer (which I think is most vulnerable to error) goes down, the Direct USB drive would still be capturing.
Thanks very much! Hoping to pull the trigger sometime this week.
