Until they come out with something with these features, at this level of quality, that works so well with GarageBand at a lower price, ... I'll be happy.
I'm EXTREMELY happy with this interface! Very low noise, clean signal from my AKG C2000B condenser. Also used it with my acoustic electric... I LOVE this thing! It's not an MBox, but it's pretty d@mn good!
It came with Cubase LE... haven't even unwrapped the disc... I use GarageBand on an iBook G4. This thing has more features than I'll use. I just needed an interface for getting vocals and guitar into my iBook. I'll probably experiment with the MIDI i/o but I don't have any need for the S/PDIF at this time. All I cared about was 2 channels, XLR's with phantom power, and guitar/mic line in.
Ease of Use
I took it out of the box, plugged it into my iBook, opened GarageBand, and immediately started a session. Haven't introduced it to my PC yet... don't really care... but have heard that it's not much more involved.
Seems pretty solid. Aluminum casing... what else can I say? Feels a lot more solid than my Mbox.
Well worth the price! Knowing what I know now, if I'd had to pay more, I'd still think it was worth it.
The Wow Factor
Looks great, knobs are in a good spot, I love the placement of the XLR inputs.
