    I use an RME Fireface, WOW! Before that I had used a Firepod, which is a great unit, and also a Tascam 1804, also a great unit, but I had some problems with the driver stability at times. RME has been amazing however in comparison, both with drivers and sound conversion.

    BTW Amonte: I would go with a Firebox over the 410 probably. I think with the 410 you can only use 2 analog ins at once, and the Firebox you can use 4.

    Damn, you're right! There's actually only two analog ins - you can use either the XLR inputs or the 1/4" on the back.

    Well, that makes it a pretty easy decision!

    I'm gonna go with my MOTU 828. It's the first one, not the MKII, so its missing a couple things that would be very nice to have, like being able to monitor ALL the channels without latency instead of just 2. But hey, $350 for 8 analog ins with 2 preamps, plus lightpipe and S/PDIF; I can't complain! I love this thing!

    I've been using a Motu 828mkII for the past five months (on a PC Windows laptop) and have not regretted spending every penny for it.

    Zero problems.

    (BTW: "almost useless" S/PDIF???? I have a TCElectronicsM300 effects box hanging off my S/PDIF ports on my 828..... not useless at all!!!
