This unit is awesome! I always loved the sound of analog equipment but I also love the convenience of mixing in the box, fast recall times, easy and deep automation, no noise.. etc. and the sound of the hardware emulations is getting better and better.
This box is what I needed to be able to do proper mixing in the box and still benefit from the depth, width and high dynamic range of analog. It doesn't color the sound but it becomes big, wide, open and tight!, the separation of the bass guitar and kick drum is awesome and the harsh edges are removed.
After testing plenty of summing boxes I chose this one, it's a definite buy! I'm thinking of getting another Apollo 16 and another Mixdream XP to get my summing rig to 32 channels!
