Default Presonus DigiMax D8 with Presonus 1818 VSL

Hey all,

I know the Presonus 1818 VSL was mentioned, but I also wanted to add that I have a Presonus 1818 VSL with a Presonus DigiMax D8.
The Presonus DigiMax D8 is an ADAT unit that adds 8 more pre-amps, giving a total of 16 preamps through the 1818 VSL ( the 1818 VSL only has 8 pre-amps ).

I connect the DigiMax D8 to the VSL with an ADAT cable and a BNC clock sync with VSL as source. I record 16 channels connected on my Lennox ThinkPad.
Recording our live sessions of our bands( 16 tracks: drums 10 tracks, bass 2 tracks, guitar, sampler, synth, vocals ). 44.1 kHz, USB 2.0 from VSL to laptop.

I also am running the Native Linux version of reaper. Latency is about 6 ms roundtrip, using JACK/Alsa. I will post latency and comp specs in the other message.

Thanks so much for the Linux version! I am running Ubuntu Studio with a Low-Latency Kernel. I have some interest in the Gentoo studio for even more latency, but am fine with what Ubuntu is giving me currently.
