Current Situation: I have a complex studio system based on a pair of RME Raydats with a lot of external routing and headphone cues and 3 speaker system making full use of studio control room features. The studio is completely patched in using multiple adat converters.
Problem: I am wanting to pick up an Apollo Twin because of the near zero latency monitoring through efx that it offers. This should be helpful when I am adding mono or stereo tracks to projects that are already partially mixed… but I can’t afford to convert my entire studio over to the Apollo series of interfaces. This would mean that I would have to alternate between the RME interface and the Apollo Twin in the middle of a project.
Question: 1. Do any of you currently alternate between interfaces in your studio for similar reasons and 2. do you have any tips on how you manage Cubase preferences and routing when you do select a different asio device?
Any further comments on this would be helpful.
