Yeah I heard the apogee and liked it especially on rock stuff, not so much on jazz. don't recall exactly why now?. might have just been the material. I've also heard the Burl which is really cool. But since I got a killer deal on the avid it won out.
@LEE HAWKINS - is the 1ms latency referring to a low latency mixer built into hardware? Not the round trip through your DAW?
@nhamiel - are you analog summing then going through the 2ch adc?
@3rdstone - yes those apollos are quite popular. And you get the dsp for their plugs. I'd love to try out those plugins but a satellite at $1000 just seems too much cash for just the hardware. They should give that thing away for a couple hundred bucks to easily get more people hooked on them.
