Digidesign's 003 mixer Audio Interfaces

Here for the gear

Digidesign's 003 mixer

Who has one? Is it worth the money? I might be able to apply for the Exchange program and get rid of my aging MBox. It is a lot of cash though, but I have no idea of the quality of the M-Audio mixer alternative.

Then there's Mackie Universal Control.

Do you really need faders and the handy transport control? I think it's too much $$ for the amount of use it would get. 002R and some microphones/pres would be a better investment, IMHO.

Yeah, I'm looking at that bad boy too. So far I've read that the pre-amps are good but not the greatest and the layout of the control surface can be a bit confusing. However, I've also read that it's intuitive to use and that some professionals have been impressed enough to add it to their setups.

I think it just depends what you want from it. It's not a professional studio standard piece of gear but it's not priced like one either. However, alot of people have said it's too expensive still.

I was going to get a 002 since I figured (in my economic genius ) the prices would drop a lot with the 003 coming out. But then I started to take into account that eventually, the 002 would be outdated and have no more updates available, be less compatible, etc. So I am saving up the little extra money and sending in my Mbox 2 to get the 003 with Music Production Tool Kit. I was actually surprised that Digidesign did something as cool as this trade-in offer!
