I've been a Digi 002/03 guy for a little over 20 years. It finally became clear Avid and Apple were never going to play nice past Mojave so it was time to give it a nice sea burial. The FP8 is a nice little device. It's feels scaled down, lighter, maybe even a littel cheap if you're,used to the 12 pound Digi. But you quickly shift your attention back to the work and stop comparing and you find whatever you're doing on ProTools is going just fine. I sure as heck was not going to pay as much as I did for the Digi, and get the Artist Mix (Avid proprietary console) and have it feel just as small and cheap. So affordable, and it works. The best of both worlds.
