Garbage - avoid

By Greg Martin

from Edmonton AB

Craps out constantly and is sure to ruin your mixing sessions. TC Electronics support is non-existant. Check the TC users forums if you need confirmation.

Defective Product

By Ike-geuRD

from College station

The theory of this would be sweet, but sadly it never works. After several reboots it will work for an hour or so but most of the time only 4 dsp chips will show up instead of 8 dsp chips. I thought I was alone in this however after reading user forums everyone is having the same problem. Do not buy...
