    i was about to purchase an aardvark direct pro q10 8 channel pci interface, having heard a few recordings done w/ one. I liked what i heard, but the company has since gone bust, eliminating customer service. i would like the motu hd 192 of course but dont have the loot.
    i can get 2 q10's for that price. Any suggestions or alternatives? Any horror stories? Thank you.

    wrong place to be asking for horror stories. this is a recording forum. visit the campfire stories forum for those...

    For 1 grand you have alot of options man.
    MOTU 828 MKII, Tascam FW1884 or 1804, RME Multiface II, M-Audio 1814, Mackie Onyx 1200F are all around 1k.

    All good products.

    Do NOT buy an Aardvark.

    The company closed shop a few years ago without a trace and they never released any drivers that were not bug ridden...

    All the other suggestions in this thread so far are good choices.

    I have a Tascam 1884 and i love it. it is very useful for recording and mixing. I have to say though that the converters and preamps suffered a little(i imagine to keep costs down) but i might have to pick up a Rosetta 800 to compensate. HE HE :lol: --CK
