Very easy to use with the principle of "everything under the fingers", convenient to save time.
Control panel to very clear to view the tracks live, you can easily edit as precise, based automation to the mix.
Numerous possibilities for monitoring, and finally mastering this possibility is very important for the level of the CD.
Full manual, but sometimes not very clear, but good once you understand the logic Roland, we hardly need the manual!


Very good quality preamp for a semi-pro, a very good converstion with 0 latency, which is most important to record (unlike some sound cards adding a little faster processor!).
This device has a true analog sound which is quite surprising.
The effects are good quality (reverb, delay, chorus, compressor, multi-effects guitar, pitch, compression, etc. ..) and ls EQs that are quite precise and are available for each individual tracks.

In the end it was a mix of good quality and especially good DEFINITIONS notament good momentum in the lower.

All indispenssables synchros are available (3 or 4), and parramtrables.

18 tracks is a vritable read (16 if the tracks are used for the 17/18 mastering with the drive in optional SCSI) / 8 simultaneous recording.


The device is simple plutt that complex if one wants to use the bottom, with the usual major functions - they are many dja - fall under the fingers!
The usual functions are all shortcuts must prvoir for some hands and 3 or 4 fingers!
As the manual is comprehensive but badly screwed trs. Vraimment must be read to leave nothing to spend ...


The converters are so good that the machine will ring analogue plutt right, but extremely good quality, it has the sound!
Although the vibrant trs is good, be careful - Especially the recording - and do not abuse levels rise too high, even when ca saturates rather quickly. Despite this margin is enough to get what you want.
The effects are trs professionals and complements parameter. Their quality is not inferior to the racks honreux utiliss good studios. In addition, the panel offered my opinion covers all applications and all styles!
The machine is sold with a card SERIES Indeed, it is essential to afford the deuxime! That means 4 effects simultaneously stro with some restrictions on the effects of insert. This is the bare minimum to work and get a comfortable rsultat vraimment tweaked ... Especially with such effects may have "make a sound" and save with.

This is an ultra comprehensive, excellent quality and allows gnrale srieusement to make a record at home of A Z - A condition of being well quip in instruments and micro (s) of quality that go without saying - and get a rsultat vraimment PRO! Provided information to use it well, and to work mixing and arrangement worthy of the name.
There is nothing to throw, and it's rare even for devices in this range!
I had to make real pros - Hear by true connoisseurs - for his purchase, he said that my all in the similar range of other manufacturers, no one sounds like it - and yet some of its most Chres.
Euros/17000 2600 francs for such a machine - With two cards effects and RW writer - I find that it is not carrment CHRE! And I have a good approach trs REPORTS qualitprix regarding the instruments and musical equipment.
If you have a project seriousness, the tools you need and the possibility to offer such a machine is not worth even rflchir, go ahead!
