So I have a presonus Eureka and an Art Pro channel. They're ok, but all of the true professionals I know are telling me to stop wasting money on these prosumer gear, and instead buy a couple real pieces. I'm considering purchasing the Focusrite ISA 428. Am i really going to hear a difference in my mixes send stuff through this instead of the Eureka?? I'm curious and want to find out if something is fact or myth, so here goes. Is it true that by sending your tracks through true hi-end pres and converters make songs practically mix themselves? Is it safe to assume that my mid level pres are making my tracks fight for space in the mix? Just so you know, i'm doing mostly hiphop and r&b productions. This purchase is mainly to enhance the music, not the vocals. I already have RME converters, and I hear those are pretty good. If you want to hear the music that i'm trying to improve apon you can hear some at http://www.Somobe.com I guess i'm just looking for some verification that I will hear results and improvement from my $1700 investment in higher end pres. Thanks for any help.
