I recognize you from the LAB boards, particularly since we both run own and use the EV QRx speakers.
It's a shame there's not much traffic on this forum. I also do live tracking (direct outs to an Alesis HD24XR disk recorder), and bring the tracks into Protools for mixing. I've also done some full recording projecs in my home "studio". For what its worth, I charge clients $25 per hour for these projects.
I'm curious about your use of the Dante interface, though. I just sold one of my clients an Allen & Heath GLD-80, and we're considering putting a Dante card into it, with the idea of tracking directly into Protools version 10, which is now open architecture. Unfortunately, I haven't found many folks (vendors) that know much about this yet, and from what I read, we may be limited to tracking 32 channels concurrently in Protools. Their band uses 37 channels.
Any thoughts you can share on the Dante approach?
