Out of the two you posted earlier, I'd go with the Fast Track. Haven't really heard much about the lower-end Fast Tracks, but the bigger ones are pretty decent. Not a big fan of the Line6 ones.

The Icicle looks like it's only an XLR input. So if you want to DI your bass, you're SOL. The Fast Track includes both an XLR input and a 1/4", so you could either use a mic or plug right in.

So, anyone here used 8 inputs at once over USB2? How well did it work?

How about 12 (via ADAT)?

So, was doing some browsing on interfaces coming out, ran into this: http://www.behringer.com/EN/Products/FCA1616.aspx

Either Behringer is going to make one of the best affordable interfaces ever or its going to be a total flop. The rumors are the pres are improved ADA8000s which are pretty damn good. They're going to be $250 when they come out, I may risk it to see how well it works

USB and Firewire? This could be good, provided the drivers are good.

Save for there only being 4 pres Although considering the price you could just ADAT an ADA8000 or a focusrite Octopre...

Though I think for $1000 the absolute best option for 16 I/O is a Saffire Pro 40 + an Octopre II ADAT'd in.

Yeah but 4 Pres for $250 with the ability to ADAT in 8 more? You know its going to turn heads. It looks like they're trying to model it after the RME Fireface UFX (At least design wise). For $450, you can have one of these and an ADA8000 and have 12 ins. This is more than enough for a home studio.

Like you said, a lot of it is going to come down to the drivers. Behringer has been making strides to establish themselves as a budget with quality company. Considering I dished out $450 on a pair of Truths which way exceeded my expectations, I'd be willing to risk $250 on the FirePower.

Me too, assuming the drivers are good!

Seriously I'd kill to have 12 inputs for $450.

Interesting.

Mic pres from a Midas board would be pretty sweet at that price!

I want to note that I just bought a new Focusrite Saffire 6 and it now has USB 2.0!!! (not stated on their website yet but the box and USB output say USB 2.0)

This should be a big advantage because of the so called latency issues people on the internet talk about.

Tomorrow I will test the thing!

Can you guys help me out? I started this thread yesterday http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru....php?p=30431618

I want to know what would be better for us, a good interface like the Focusrite Liquid Saffire, a multitrack like a Tascam, or a multitrack with a built in interface like the Alesis Multimix 16 USB 2.0?

There's a huge post on Multi trackers amongst the first posts. Pretty sure that ways up the pros and cons of such things.

Well, it leaves me with two options still, an interface or a multitrack with built in interface. Which hybrid multitrack can I get with $900 USD that has good quality inputs like the Focusrite Liquid? We want the best stuff quality/price wise. Alesis? Tascam?

I don't have any experience with Alesis, but Tascams kit is very good so I'd always recommend them. I don't think Tascam make a hybrid multitrack DAW / interface, but the 2488 and the DP24 are worth looking at as standalone DAWs.

If it definitely has to be a hybrid, the Zoom R series is the best recommendation.

Yep, it definitely has to be hybrid since we are gonna use midi and plugins (or maybe you can tell me if going to a stand alone interface is a better option).

Unless you're planning on moving it around a lot, without using a laptop, the preamps and conversion on a computer interface are going to be quite superior to anything you'll get in a multitracker.
