Don't do that, now I want this one too
One thing is, I'm a synth guy (sorry for posting in the High End Forum, but I didn't want to receive all the 'there's plugin X+Y for that' responses...) doing a lot of sound design, weird non-danceable instrumentals and soundtracks for some low-budget short-movies, all with hardware. I don't have a commercial studio and don't record/mix vocals, so I'm no big time mixer or producer.
I'll like the Prime Time because of the direct access to most of the features and the sound character, which I love together with some analogue synths.
I tried the PCM42 last night and it sounds great and to my ears the sound is cleaner/more transparent compared to the Prime Time, which would be a nice thing to have around too (and my first impression could be very wrong too, only worked with it for an hour yet).
So, if I can get a fair price for both units, I'll probably end up with both of theme (and sell my TC D-Two...), the seller is in no hurry.
