"3 years old and still kicking!!"
i,d sooner get my self a bigger multi roomed setup first than stepping up or replacing the project mix,even then,i ask my self, "would i need to replace it"
Sound
i progressed to the project mix from sound blaster 1080, was blown away by the sound quality,bearing in mind i only had earphones when i set it all up (which was a breeze!!)
Features
the i/o came with ableton live lite,various power adapter cables(i guess to suite different international sockets etc.)It looks so pro like,and gave my little room a real lift.my only gripe would be that they could have added a fake leather or vynal padding along the bottom of the unit,because leaning on my hand, using the jogg wheel for long periods causes numbness!!
Ease of Use
so easy to use,you never forget either or loose interest. ive had mine for 3 years nearly,still as good as when i first plugged it in.Still need my p.c mouse on occassion,i couldnt go back to a sound blaster type card again!!!
Quality
looks very good!! maybe could do with a more colourful lcd for meter display etc.But for sub 1000 euros already too good :).
Value
well worth the money i payed!! put this way:if someone was going to offer me the money i payed for mine, i'd advise them to go to a store and get their own!! i havent had the need to look a similar items either cheaper or more expensive.
Manufacturer Support
support bang on!! no problems over the near 3 years!!!
The Wow Factor
ive still got it!!,(say no more!!)
