Solid Drivers and great mixer software: total mix. The firewire interface has been replacedby USB in the new model UFX. My main criticism would be the DAC but tis card's life could easily be extended by purchasing an external DAC.

Lumpy room nodes? Got the low-end blues? This could ease your problems but it's not a replacement for acoustic treatment. Great little interface and monitor controller that can fine focus your audio like a camera lens.

The Studiologic VMK-188 plus looks promising but fails to follow through. Feel of the keys are great but lacks too many velocity values. Knobs and sliders are dodgy but does work and have full range of MIDI values.

There is a reason why most studios have a Avalon 737; the french vanilla sound is good for many applications. They don't scream charater like some of the newer units out there, but it is still a useful channel strip.

The R84 is a ribbon mic from AEA. I did not really like the sound samples I heard on the web, but my dealer insisted it was fantastic. They were right. I use it to mic guitar cabs and sax with a DW Fearn VT-1. Really, really fantastic and true to life with warmth. Can't recommend enough.
