Is this the next step in recording? I'm always spending a lot of time with mic's on drums and other instruments which is part of the fun. But it can also be a struggle. Looking at the video from Slate it will make a recording project a lot easier. You can choose type of mic after recording and change to sound completely. The interface is also interesting. 0.7ms native latency...and high quality preamps.
If you're into recording, check this video:
i started a tread on this very thing ...im already very happy at the tools i have tried from slate .when funds are available im gonna try the ml-2 ? if this is even 80% close to 421 d12 it would be worth it for me for drums
so i remain hopeful of this leap in technology
i believe you can achieve any result given enough time a mackie board a sm57...given enough time
however with the right tools i feel you get there faster
