New Interface - Need Help Choosing One

    So I used to have an Alesis IO26 Firewire Interface which worked great... until I got logic 9. Now the Alesis isn't compatible at all and I need to find a new interface. I've been looking but I can't find any that separate phantom power into 2 channel blocks as opposed to 4 channel blocks. I do a lot of live recording with dynamic and powered Mic's in addition to doing studio overdubbing/engineering work so it's pretty important to me to find an interface that can run with all my needs.
    Any Suggestions?
    Much appreciated

    Hmm, pretty nonexistent right now, I'd say from about $200-$700 at the most in the near future. I'm right now looking at a Motu 8pre that looks pretty amazing for $500.
    Any thoughts?

    AT that price, you don't have that many options. The only other interface I could think of is the Firestudio but it only has Phantom power in sets of 4. The 8 pre has individual phantom power which is pretty good for the price.

    My Firestudio Project switches phantom power in blocks of two channels.

    The firestudio project is an amazing piece of equipment for the money.
