    OK, this is a crazy busy week for me. Graduation ceremonies Friday and Saturday, remote recording yesterday, live gig on Sunday, taking Alice to check out a grad school next week. And of course, the UFX arrives yesterday.

    Well I just couldn't resist plugging the damned thing in. I used the USB 2.0 connection. Plugged in, installed the drivers, started protools, and after a few minutes figuring out the dance between the PT I/O setup and the FF TotalMix, I'm good to go. Didn't do much more than open an old session and listen to the output (trying and failing to keep my confirmation bias from telling me that the DA conversion is a LOT better than the old Digi 002R).

    I've got to go and get to work. I have to read all of the names of the math graduates on Saturday and I have to practice pronouncing them.

    I'll report back some day, but it may be off and on for a few days.

    Cheers, Bob

    Right on Bob, I think we're all excited to hear how it all sounds and works!

    I'm quite interested as well. When the UFX first came out I considered selling both my FF800 to buy one. I opted for the convenience of the daisy chain and my modular rack setup instead but am not above being convinced otherwise.

    I'd certainly like to hear more. Finally, PT 9 is what AVID should have done a few years ago. Nice to know they have finally wised up and joined the real audio world. I'm not high on their proprietary circuitry hardware. They are just trying to catch up to all the other software manufacturers who make more sense. Of course there's going to be a lot of hard-core long-term ProTools fans that will all probably now get upset when their not great sounding hardware when compared to something like a Mackie.All I have to do is get some other converters and that I have a 36 input, 1970s, all transistor NEVE audio interface for ProTools 9 when I come up with the extra cash to blow on it. I'd probably do just fine even with a Barringer line level only converter. What a thought... NEVE & Behringer in the same sentence. Horror of horrors or is that whores?

    I hope you graduate the ceremony with honors Bob?
