Hi Stephen,

Do you mean ADAT cables?

If your talking about transfering a file rather than
doing a realtime record pass then you are correct;
assuming your using ADAT cables. I'm not aware of an
alternative cable for the 4416 and the RME cards are
ADAT. You can't use those interfaces for file

I would estimate less

The AW4416 has a SCSI interface, it runs Linux
(irrelevant for this issue but see Tux during the
boot) so you could figure out the AW filesystem
format, build and mount a drive for both systems and
use that to transfer files. I suppose. Try fat32 or
whatever is used in Windows. There's a Windows
application for extracting files from AW archives. I'd
try running it in Wine.

Otherwise, I imagine Ardour to be the most intuitive
solution for realtime recording. The AW will slave to
Ardour MTC which works well as master for multiple
passes of eight track groups. My last tests of Ardour
as the slave weren't's been awhile.

Are you using an HDR because of mobility?
