    Anyone know anything about it? Reviews? For $400, it's looking like a good deal.

    X... yes and no... it IS a firewire interface, but they're not all built the same. I think I'm just gonna bite the bullet and get a MOTU 828

    all i know, is i love my 828mk2

    just fuckin sits there and does its job

    the mackie onyx rack looks fuckin dope though. if drivers are stable with that, then i'd go for that. has 2 headphone outputs and seperate volume dials. looks higher build quality too.

    only annoying thing about the 828 is the dual-use volume/headphone volume knob

    but something cheap like a behringer 4 way, rack headphone amp will help you if you're recording artists and need different headphoens outputs

    i will get a presonus central station eventually

    Is PT M-Powered the same as PT LE? How about compatibility between M-Powered and LE or TDM?

    Im only tracking beats at home, I record at larger studios so I can have more than 32 tracks, cause LE only give you 32 and thats limiting when you doing vocal production with a singer. so basically its just a M-Audio 410, and Yamaha MG/12 mixer with my power book to track my Motif ES, MPC 4000 ATC-1 and Reason 3.0
