You must have confused my screen name with a different one: "grumphh". He is the guitarist in the GS EMI&EMPgroup... not me, I'm afraid.

?? Knock on wood, I don't have to worry about that. My reason for downsizing is purely what I have stated - I'm overwhelmed by too much stuff.

I'm not claiming this out of having experience with either interface - it's just a matter of financial caution.

Besides, chances are that you're going to leave enough gear in there to fully use those 24 channels anyway heh're right, I bought that SSL recently, but - as I do with most of my gear - I bought it used for a really good price... so if I do sell it, I might actually make some money on it You're right though, I'd probably not get much difference with an Apogee, but I like the total integration with Logic.

I've got a K2500 with weighted keys for that And have you heard the Quantum Leap pianos included in CCC? I think the combo K2500 controller + QL Pianos would be pretty much fantastic and good enough for me. Actually it wouldn't be a pain to move a real piano in there at all (it's a walk-out basement with large door). I might do it in the future. Plenty of free pianos on Craigslist...

Luckily (and due to my hard work and earlier life choices) I don't have that problem. Like I said... my downsizing stems from being overwhelmed by too much gear that I accumulated.
