This is such a killer board for the money. I'm using it right now as an audio interface. The Ghost Preamps are quiet and clear. It goes through Pre EQ which is totally awesome, I can EQ my instruments in the DAW. The raw audio that hits my DAW already sounds exquisite, it's just a little tweak from there. There is almost ZERO latency between the board and my DAW, so my recordings come out fantastic. As a mixing unit the EQ is so responsive, it takes only a small tweak to get the mix where you want it. This board will blow your mind!
