I used it once to fly in some vocals I had on the hard disk recorder into pro tools. When I went to overdub with the same chain, I missed a little bit of presence. This was before 24 bit PT. I noticed if I when analog into the Akai and via AES out into pro tools, it sounded like 1 db hotter. I can't explain this, other than to say everyone in the room liked the Akai convertor sound better. I could also hit the reds on the akai, and it didn't sound as effed up as if you when into the red on a 888 (remember, this was back with the 16 bit opto mixer)...
