I have a chance to get a great deal on one of these, but I am kind of torn. I mean yeah the sony would be more compatible with other formats instead of the tdm control 24, but this is for an expansion to the studio, which already is using DP3, so we are trying to get a pro tools rig. So I am at a crossroads. So many people are telling me the Sony, the Sony the Sony.. but the fact of the matter is, we are only going to be using this rig for pro tools anyways, so why wouldnt I get the control 24?? Its cheaper first of all. I dont know. You guys tell me what you think... :? Thanks ..
