Exactly :)

Haven't actually gotten around to doing yet, but I started asking about how 
Mike C. had put together the ns_kit so that I new a little about the 
background to the sounds I was messing with before I started changing the 
foreground :)

Hmmm, I suspect that is _well_ out of my budget, but I don't quite see how 
it works.  I see it will take MIDI channels from the Mac via Firewire, but 
what about audio?  Did I just miss that in the list of features :)  I mean, 
if I somehow made 8 different drum track outputs for a song from Doggiebox, 
I've only got a stereo-out jack on the back of my laptop, so I certainly 
can't send 8 tracks through it simultaneously.  Does the MOTU 828mk2 let 
you do that via a Firewire connection or something like that?
