Long live the firewire, sound Motu, line converters of high quality mic Pramp not bad, 8 i / o ADAT, SMPTE sync, the big mac orientation ...
Use: registration of my group dub on DP4 (midas venice loc in Pramp mic, direct exits out to the 828), mixing movies, music and sound hacks a basic sampler xternal, moog modular in AU ...
does not record in 192kHz, "only" in 96/24 ... but ...


On my G5 no worries, the sector is plugged, firewire, we put the cd and presto!


If I do not count tien small bug DP4.12 (updated on 4.5), AC drives, not a bug!
maximum recorded tracks simultaneously: 10 with 3 playing at the moment, it seems far from the limits of bbte!
with moog modular, 4ms latency in 48khz, cb ...
to use, what I like least, it's the little knobs too small ..., nicks METERS has LED ridiculous spacing among jack in front too just back, do not rely connect 8 large jack enrobs like "yellow cable" no pass, prvoir multicore with a small "fine" jacks.
The standalone mode is convenient, ca dpanne.


I use it for 6 months, it is beautiful, it sounds great, it's big sound, the price is reasonable.
Today j'couterais E-mu cards before buying, having said no regrets, I love it!
