ok. I spent a hour or so searching through the posts about the Presonus Firepod, but I didn't necessarily find what I was looking for. Currently, I'm recording with an old Yamaha M512 mixer, through my SoundBlaster Extigy, into Adobe Audition 1.0. This means that I have to EQ, Pan, and mix drums (and other multiple miked intsruments) before recording, and then I only have one stereo track to work with. I have been looking for a way to do multiple tracks for drums and other stuff, and the Firepod looks like a good option (or at least much better than what I have now) I guess I have a couple of questions: 1. Is the Firepod even worth buying? I have about $900 that I could spend. If there is something much better, around or below that price, I'd be willing to buy it. 2. Can I use it with Audition? Nothing against Cubase, I'm just comfortable with Audition ater using it for almost a year.
