I am looking through the delivery requirements of a project that's a feature film with a 5.1 mix.
In the past I have always sent stems as separate wavs and any OMF's/Sessions to boot.
The client would want the m&e 5.1 mix as a DA88 tape.
I know it is/used to be common practice to send tapes from a DA88 to clients for archival/M&E purposes, so my question is:
Is it worth investing now in a DA88, especially still for 5.1 bounces? How will this integrate in my ProTools system with a Pro Fire 2626 (I presume it can utilise the Tascam connector?)
Theres a few here in the UK for £150 so initially it wouldn't be a huge investment-like this one-
Cheers for any help!
