can you not just use the RADAR as a set of converters, with the inputs relayed over ADAT/MADI to an interface? I've not used a RADAR that way (and not used one for years!) but I can use my Alesis HD24 like that, for example. You'd need the right RADAR card of course...
That is a perfectly good question (and a philosophically good one!) - but if I did that, it would be symptomatic of gear obsession and I need to concentrate on what is important - and that is what happens on the other side of the glass and how to convert that into an end product for the punter!
The customer is always 100% of what I have to think about and we are moving from catering to musicians, producers and labels, to producing end product.
Our new business model is to worry about the end user and not the business user. The end user cares nothing for what you used to get to an end product.
All that matters is to get to that product.
By getting rid of the Radar, I can get to that end product a bit quicker!
Over the past few years, I have seen companies like Avid, Apple, Adobe and others, expect me to pay them money and simultaneously jump through hoops of their invention. That ain't gonna happen!
The digital nerd community seem to think that I and everybody else has nothing better to do than install this, configure that, and download the other. What I need above all other considerations is speed and simplicity.
I employ someone to deal with finances because I do not have the time or the inclination to pratt about with bookkeeping software and rubbish like car insurance and dealing with pin-headed officials. Similarly, I have two accountancy firms on tap to deal with the likes of HMRC and the German Finanzamt. The last thing I need is for our core activity to be polluted by complication.
(More than a bit of a rant - but who knows! Maybe some tech developer or exec will read this and learn to keep things simple. We do not need more pointless features and protocols outside of WAV and USB. And don't get me started on the absurdity of film/video formats!)
