Background: My work in my studio is nearly all mixing and latency is not an issue. For the occasional overdub, I have an MR816x which works well, but otherwise the interface is a MOTU 2408 mk3 with Apogee converters connected through optical lines. It’s all running on a Mac Pro, and normally when I need to track a session I usually just book into a well equipped studio. Now I’m looking at a couple of projects that could be tracked in my setup and would like to have direct monitoring through the MOTU for more convenience, but Mac somehow doesn’t allow direct monitoring except through the MR816x.
Question: If I create a drive partition on my Mac for Bootcamp/Windows and open N 5.5 in that environment, will I gain PC style direct monitoring?
If so, which Windows version would be best?
Thanks for your help!
