I am running a laptop recording setup. Using a Motu Ultralite and the Powercore compact. It delivers the goods quite well. I am running Nuendo and sometimes Cubase. The plug-ins that come with the Powercore are solid and extremely usefull. I really like the character plug-in and the guitar amp simulator works nicely. I did have one problem with the Powercore. It does not like to be daisy chained to any thing. It wants its own seperate input into the computer. I tried to piggy back it from the extra Firewire port from the Ultralite and the Powercore started doing unusal things. Once I purchased a seperate Firewire card the unit ran flawless. I give this puppy 2 thumbs up.
