Comments about Focusrite OctoPre MkII 8-Channel Mic Preamp:

I originally bought the Focusrite Liquid 56 and had linked it up to a Digimax D8, which worked...sometimes...with Pro Tools 10 on my Mac. Unfortunately I seemed to keep struggling with the two interfaces syncing properly and me having a hassle free recording session. I made the decision to match the two brands in hopes that I could just start up Pro Tools and go without fiddling with settings every time so I bought the Octo Pre. Took me less than an hour to get everything locked up, Pro Tools up and running and sounds going through both interfaces. Not to mention I now have pads and 48v for more channels. Very excited about this setup and here we are over a week later and still just starting up Pro Tools and going to town!!!
