I've been producing through the computer for many years, but have always used outboard gear, like a mixer, etc. Going totally digital was a little scary, but I knew I had to do it to keep up. So, I got this little interface, and am still on a learning curve. My problem is deciphering between what is going to actually be put on CD, and what I am hearing on the speakers. Going from one virtual mixer to the next is a little hard for my brain to envision. Turning virtual buttons on and off is nice, but I'd like to understand it better. It would help if I understood hardware sends and such. But, overall I like it.
