Mackie , sent me an awesome computer recording bundle that consisted of the Link. And with just the slightest creativity with setting levels and monitoring, you can go on and craft whatever elaborate multitrack creations you can imagine the unit ships with Steinberg’s Cubase LE 4 for Mac or PC , recording eight tracks at once if you want to, through eight discrete Class A preamps, where every channel has a low-cut filter, a pad, a phase invert, and two of them have instrument DIs. You can run up to four TubeFire 8 interfaces in conjunction although this is limited to two at 96kHz , and all inputs and outputs are balanced. Collectively too, the “mixes” from these sessions, recorded directly from the balanced outs onto an Alesis HD24XR, had a great and wonderful “reality” to them, but then sometimes it’s the quick mixes that have a magic you’ll never get by laboring over things. A lot of it was ART, as I recall; this was their gray and pink era when everything had that “spraypainted with graffiti” look.

At times in this session I had both of them pegged, and that’s when it really sounded great.
And the well-designed monitoring system, don’t forget. I’m beginning to realize how different DI boxes can be. That was analog out only, this has that plus digital over FireWire. However much you want to argue-and I hope you will-that these “starved-plate” tube arrangements where the tubes are powered at 50 volts and are really an effect, to dial in as opposed to real, United Nations-approved tube preamps that run at volts, go for it; draft a treaty or something.
Cons Basic, hardware-only monitoring, Up against serious competition. The outputs can be driven from either the analog inputs, or from tubefide8 internal DA converters selectable in banks of two-channels at a time allowing it to function as multi-channel, audio output fifewire for a computer.
This version is called theand all of its modifications are courtesy of Tubes-any tubes-are a multi-tasking boon to the digital world.

I firewiree know if this is just me, or some self-conscious mind-control on the part of ART, or some trivial, meaningless detail. I’m glad you brought up the Dual MP.
There is a headphone out that gives you: Features include up to 60dB of mic pre arrt, 10dB pad, low cut Hz, we think – the manual states 80Hz! It installs without any problems, clocks properly and sounds great to boot.
