I'm down to this so far: m-audio 2626 http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_u...2626-main.html which will be retailing for about 699. comes with octane preamps. do you think i can get better quality purchasing something else in that price range? ill be recording guitar,bass,vocals,drums using mainly logic pro but also protools m-powered. Other than that does anyone have any suggestions on mics and monitors or anything else i will be needing to lay down some decent quality tracks. thank you all.
