I already own a SQN4S-II with a PCM-D50, but would love to record 4 track. Right now I'm in the position of buying a second hand 744 for a reasonable price, including a MixPre and a CL1+MiniKeyboard.
I was only looking for a 744t, so I was wondering if the MixPre is the best match for the SD? It's smaller and is from the same company, but wouldn't my SQN4 suffice? On the other hand, I could always sell the MixPre.
@Tim Prebble: you combine a 302 with your 744, does this have advantages I'm not aware of?
