Do you guys think I should get it? I can get an MR816x for about the same. I was thinking of getting something a little smaller too. Like an impact twin or even the scarlet 2i2 by focusrite.
Thats a good deal IMO for the FF800
MR816X sounds better and has better pres. Thats what I have here
RME FF800 kills my MR in terms of input and output options though. Also, the routing options in the RME kill the MR816X as well, no comparison. So if you need a lot of routing options and
I/O options, it would be the better deal
I chose between the FF800 and the MR816X and the cost for the FF was too much at the time. Ive been happy with my MR816x
However, Ive been looking at this guy:
