Don't let the price fool you. I own the #1 production company in Los Angeles and completely endorse this pre-amp. Each of my staff at World Press-kit Productions also endorses this pre-amp and loves the warm tangible tone that comes from it. The PreSonus is perfect despite being a home studio pre-amp or hundred thousand dollar studio pre-amp.
I use two of these for live recordings at church and they have been excellent. It is very easy to set up (hardware and software wise, simple firewire) and implement into Cubase. I have used the 1/4 inch inputs with inserts from the mixer which works great but I don't think I've actually plugged anything into the microphone jacks. It also has a pretty small profile and the cost is pretty good.
I use this as an I/O expander via ADAT for my Yamaha 01v96V2 digital mixer. This gave me enough capability with selective submixing to do a live recording of a stage production that had more than 24 mics in use. The new clock in da box is rock solid,based on 5 sessions each more than 2 hrs long. The unit is very solidly built. I will buy a second one and an ADAT card for my mixer. I had one small problem. The remote power supply has a threaded locking ring to secure it. My power supply ring was not threaded, and the supply had to be taped in place. PreSonus FedExed me a new supply. This level of customer service is a big part of why I am giving this unit 5 stars.
After several years working with some of the most prominent names in the music industry and being required to use nothing but the absolute best!, I had the opportunity to use this on several occations on a live recordings with orquestra concertos, jazz big band, choral concertos, drums in the studio, etc.. and let me tell you this device is FANTASTIC!!!. We all know there are lots of brands out there and they are ok devices, Presonus really hit it this time with the Digimax FS, there is no need to spend more, or to go with same brands just for the name, DIGIMAX FS WORKS!!! Amazing preamps, extremely simple to use, feels, sounds and looks at least three time it's cost! This is best invention since the internet!!!.
