- An amazing value Review by bFunk
- The very best sounding Fast Track devices. A super-low noise floor (as in, where's the noise at?) and great sounding pre-amps. Multiple outputs are great for juggling between two sets of monitors, or go out to a headphone amp and set up two different headphone mixes (the built-in headphone jack mirrors outs 1-2)
- A full version of Pro Tools 9. Plenty of tracks, lots of instruments, tons of power. Yes, 10 is out there, but Avid keeps calling it a "transitional" release. You're not going to be missing anything until PT11 ships with 64-bit support.
- An ilok. Yeah, not everybody likes them, but it beats internet-based or phone-based activation when it comes time to fix your PC that died a horrible hard drive death. I always feel like I'm going to lose it so I have it taped with packing tape to the interface and I have a USB extension cable that I plug into the computer. Stupid? Maybe. Secure? You bet!
