I've been thinking a lot lately about investing in an fw-1884. Since the demise of tascams forum, I haven't been able to find anyone who may know much about it. I saw that tascam also just released a new usb control surface with more faders: the us-2400. I can't seem to find much info on it either. (how many inputs?) Anyway, if anyone has any light to shed on the subject, I'm all ears.
