Thoughts? David is against tascam, and I'm a fan of cheaper. If he has the cash I'll recommend the presonus fire..thing but if 100$ is about it I'm just curious if anybody has used 'em.
apologies if I hijack the thread but I thought if anyone had used 'em it'd be a good add to the talks.

Hey, maybe it will work just great for you. I don't recommend them, not because I've had bad experiences with them, but rather because there are a few brands I've trusted for years, who have been doing that stuff for years, way before Focusrite decided to get into the audio interface market.
