PICS!!!!!!! (albeit shitty webcam ones)
I've had a duet for a while now. Have been very very happy with the quality of the converters and the preamps are surprisingly good. I'm taking a semester off of school so I won't be able to use the studios there but will still have access to all of the microphones and preamps as well as my teacher's mic and pre selection. ( I do have some mics of my own as well). Two inputs well just didn't cut it and I'm using more and more outboard gear as well so two outputs wasn't exactly ideal. Had to borrow a bit of money from the rents to swing it before I headed back but it made a whole lot more sense to get it while I was home now and pay them back in a few weeks.
Most of all I'm stoked now that my roommates and I can record our jam sessions and could do especially well once I get some pres for the other 4 inputs. (Probably used SSL. Maybe a used benchmark mps if I can find one.) I just can't swing for a 3124+ anytime soon.
