I'm interested because - it looks like a much better solution to the I/O issues I have than a patch bay or a digital mixer. It seems to be feature laden and is USB too - supposedly the USB version of the Pro 40... The F/rite pres have always been ok by me, but thats secondary to conversion quality. You can bypass the pres on all of the inputs just by using 1/4 inch jacks instead of XLR's according to the promos- but there are no reviews around to speak of. Anyone?
