I was very surprised to find all the options that are integrated with this interface. I used the FW-1884 to control a Digital Performer setup for recording and mixing, although this can control virtually any DAW software or MIDI device. All my essential shortcuts and functions are one button push away, and I can automate it all from the control surface. I could also mix all my projects in up to 7.1 surround sound with no other hardware. And talk about expandability; you can add up to 15 FE-8 modules for 128 physical faders!
“Versatile” is an understatement when it comes to the FW-1884. Not only does this control your DAW, but it works on its own as an 18-channel digital mixer! With insert points on all the preamps, you can turn this into a powerful all-in-one rig for your live shows, and turn it back into your recording console with a mere push of a button. It feels good to know you’ve got it all, and it feels even better in your hands.
