Amazing - just buy it
by Mike Vee from LAThis thing is my studio workhorse. 2 headphone amps and talk-back make easy and professional vocal recording at home or in a small studio a reality.

Lastly, my Apogee Rosetta 800 into the summing section is amazing.

by Shaun from Los Angeles, CAI've been using a digi002 for about 8 or 9 years now. I have always liked having some faders to mix with, but have never been a fan of the hardware itself. A month ago I decided it was time to upgra... read more [+]de, so I purchased the D-Box along with a Lynx Aurora. The difference is staggering. I already had nice monitors, but man, I'm hearing things I never heard before. Most noticeably, the stereo field. Deeper and Wider. When I used to pan things there was a void between hard panning and center, where I really couldn't tell where I was placing an instrument. Now I can hear exactly what I'm doing.

Another noticeable improvement was my ability to hear reverb. The tails sound so much better. I can now make much better choices when mixing.
The bottom line is that being able to accurately hear what's going on in a recording is one of the most crucial steps to creating a great mix. This is why I purchased the unit, and it allowed me to do just that.
As far as the summing goes, after hearing what 8 channels can do, I immediately wished I had more. To put it simply, it helps to glue everything together, creates a more cohesive sound, all while enhancing the separation between instruments.
It's not a magic box, in the sense that it will fix a bad mix. It won't. It will definitely make a good mix sound better though. close [-]
All this for under $1500
by Czar from Nashville, TNI was looking at getting a X-desk for summing and my sweetwater rep introduced me to the Dbox. Analog Summing, monitor selector, talkback, headphone jacks, d/a conversion all for under $1500. Half the... read more [+] price of the X-desk, and its 1U.

As far as the sound, the summing surely does remove digital harshness, and the d/a conversion sounds better than my lynx aurora to me. My ONLY complaint is that I would of liked a dim switch, and maybe a way to run both my monitors to the sub. But I guess thats what Dbox mkII can add. close [-]
