Hi there, I've been deliberating on getting myself a firewire interface for a few months. I've pretty much decided on a Presonus firebox based on recommendations from friends. I just noticed what looks like a good deal at a local store: $300 (CAN) for an Alesis MultiMix 8 Firewire. From what I can tell, this would do everything the Firebox can do and a lot more. Meanwhile the Firebox sells at the same store for over $350. Should I jump on this deal for the Alesis? Anybody have any experience with Alesis gear? Here's the product page: http://www.alesis.com/multimix8firewire Thanks for your thoughts!
