PERFECT FOR MY USE
It was well past time for me to get a little more serious about recording my music efforts. I'm only a home player these days and my primary instrument is ukulele. I spend immense number of hours playing at home after being burned out from gigging so much in the past.
I did my usual online research in the hunt for a product to suit my needs, which are at most, three condenser mics will be used in my situation. Two instrument mics and one one vocals large diagphram figure 8 mic for a couple of acoustic instruments and vocals.
This unit fell well within the needs and further beyond for my needs. Well built, smooth operation and solidly understandable functions that make sense. This unit does it all then some for small recording purposes.
The Pro Tools Express software that is packaged with the unit is plenty sophisticated to suit even the biggest button freak for options and toys. The software requires some learning curve efforts but isn't that the case in all things music ?
A good looking unit that doesn't try to run off every time you make an adjustment, stays put and means it. I'd recommend this PRo over the other unit simply because of the 24 bit recording capabilities and the Pro had a more updated USB connectivity.
Sweetwater did a fine job in getting the unit to me.
