Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The control surface is awesome and the number/variety of I/O's is just right for small gigs/home studios. The unit does more than I even know what to do with at this point so it's more than I probably need. What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? This product has more features than I need; however, the best feature is that the sound you play into the unit is exactly the sound you hear during recording and playback... I've had other recording units in this price range that just didn't capture the sound precisely. The number of I/O options is great for a home studio or small gig environment. My acoustic guitar runs into the unit with an XLR cable and playback sounds outstanding. I love the basic Sonar DAW software that comes with it. I run everything through the unit... my Boss eBand, Akai MPK61 controller, DR880 and I run the sound through a Yamaha mixer... I'm in a music creation/recording heaven Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? The manuals this item comes with are outstanding and make getting up and running easy. One of the best features is that I could have an idea in my head and record it without having to be a menu master, computer programmer or DAW Master Engineer... it really is plug-n-record. If you're not made of money, don't run out and buy a $500 DAW software package... this thing comes with a pretty sweet software package. How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Those familiar with DAWs and basic MIDI controllers will breeze through the learning curve... newby's like myself have to read and go through trial and error, but hey, we all gotta learn sometime:) Value Was this item an overall good value? I'm a little bitter about this because I bought this just before 1 March 2012 and there is now a $100 rebate running through 30 April 2012. I still say it's a 5-star value because the drivers software and manuals make this thing easy to use. I recorded an original song on 6 tracks today and it sounds like a professional studio recording without any post-editing work... I'm not complaining about the $599 I spent on this unit. Was this item an overall good value? Better now that there is a $100 cash rebate... I wish I had know this the week before when I bought the thing... it's still worth the money at full price.
