- Great sounding interface! Review by Operaman
- Satisfied. Review by Tom
2 separate headphone jacks are a nice feature as well as the midi inputs and phantom power. The combo jacks are great! So convenient and, thus far, reliable. I've had it for about a month so this review is an early one, but I've heard good things about this product and so far I agree.
I found out, after chatting with a focus rite rep., that the system is expandable through optical cable to connect another PRO40 yielding 16 inputs (that's 8 combo jacks on each plus a set of midi in-outs on each unit) so for another $370 I could set up a much larger project and really max it out. The rep. said that, while you could chain 3 of these units together, it's not recommended because latency issues and other problems could arise.
I haven't used this feature yet, but it is also rack-mountable. This was another selling point for me because down the road it will fit in with other gear in a rack and make organization of space as well as transportability much easier.
PC users and users of older computers may be dissatisfied (from what I saw reading various reviews), but with my up-to-date computer I am pleased with my set-up.
