First point. The 500mA I suggested was:
1-A guess or vague memory. Don't quote me on it.

Another point, if buying new- My usual sources have liberal return policies and great sales help. So its like demoing the unit......
If I run the midi board through the interface, I can attach an external power supply to the midi board so that the interface won't have to handle the load.

I'm just starting out, but I can tell you I picked up a basic Midi keyboard, so I would like to include that(keyboard has one USB and one midi out port). I can also tell you that my needs are not likely to grow too significantly as this is just a hobby. So 2 or 4 I/Os would probably suffice. As far as budget goes, I should really limit it to under $200 to be safe.

Thomas wrote:That's great to hear! The Audient's are great looking units. I think I saw AMS advertise Free 2 day shipping. Maybe you are close to the warehouse. I really like the idea of supporting a music only company, especially if their service is good. I think the ones who specialize in a certain market segment deserve our support if they can deliver competitive prices and good service. Why should the Amazon's take such a big slice.

Agree to disagree. I notice little if any diff between that and the units (or similar) mentioned above. Heck the iD4 is more expensive than all the others mentioned, yet only has one input and doesn't even have MIDI. More expensive doesn't mean better. No thx!The Audient pres are the best in their class by far.
