    we are planning to open a new studio (with $15,000 worth of equipment and furnishing). The Tascam DM 4800 looks like the best bet. We want to use it as a front end that we will digital out into a M-Audio 2626 into Pro Tools. We also want to use it as a mixing control surface for Pro Tools. Anybody use this before and have any experiences on its usability, quality, and A/D converters?

    The studio I'm an independent at just installed one. So far it's pretty nice. Sounds good and the built in fx are useable. Not fantastic but worth the few $k. A utility piece of gear more than a money piece of gear.

    The biggest downsides is that it has somewhat of a learning curve with the digital routing, and the way it is packaged by Tascam almost guarantees a damaged unit. We had two show up at the studio with the same damage caused by insufficient packaging. Make sure you inspect it thoroughly....especially the rear panel.

    same here... we're about to install one, I've never used it, but was wondering the limitations with protools.
