It's a good machine. It uses pro tools, which is what I know. I'm not willing to use any other software. For the price and for the features, this thing is the best.
The quality is great, but I use an octopre through adat on this machine. It passes the sound through great. :)
It's got some great features, including two separate headphone mixes, several inputs and outputs, drivers for most systems, etc.
Ease of Use
I had been using a G4 with a digi001 and needed something for my laptop so I could do some live recordings if I needed to. It took me about a month to finally understand how this thing worked. I had my adat setting wrong and I was getting all kinds of clicks and pops. It's fine now though. I should have just listened to the troubleshooting.
I got this used, but it was still in good quality. It's a metal box with cheaper knobs. I don't plan on throwing this thing around, and most of the time it's sitting on my desk.
I had been looking at getting a digi002, but I just couldn't afford it. I picked this up for half the price of a new one. It's given me everything I need for recording.
They've got a great FAQ and other troubleshooting help on their website. Sometimes setting everything up can be difficult and they seem to know how to fix it all.
The Wow Factor
I NEED it for my job.
musician, recording engineer
acoustic, rock, punk, etc.
