<tt>The way to go is through FireWire or dedicated FireWire-like interfaces. 
 Look at the RME Hammerfall DSP system (8 channels, 96 kHz) that is composed 
 by a cardbus and a small I/O box (either full analog or full digital). This 
 is the most compact system I know of. Other similar systems, MOTU for 
 example, come in rack size units and require AC powering.</tt><br>

Subject: lab equipment questions

question. I have recently been hired to set up a sound lab to 
 acquire and play back primate vocalizations. We have an iBook 
 from Macintosh for processing, but need advice on whether to go 
 analog to record then convert to digital for analysis or if we should 
 record digitally forgoing the conversion step. We will also be 
 getting a PC so use of Raven or Canary isn't critical except that we 
 prefer to have the one that will allow us to create play-back files. 
 Could you give a preference and justification for going analog or 
 digital for recording and would you kindly recommend a particular 
 device or point me in the general direction. 
 Many many thanks!
