I've heard that one of the G4 models is quite noisy. I'm thinking about buying a used one to get my foot in the door recording right now. I can get one for @ $1000-$1200 . That would work better with my budget right now instead of $3-3500K . Any thoughts or things to look for ? i'm planning on running through Motu828 mk3 & digital Performer,and using Presonus M80 mic Pre's. and some other things. But anyways your feedback would be appreciated. i have a friend thathas a full blown studio so I've recorded on this gear alot. AGAIN ANY FEEDBACK WOULD BE GREAT.
