This is not my first Audio interface, i've own Motu 2408 mk3, and also the Apogee Duet, while they all were great. The Tascam fx1884 out perform them in functionality and expandability. Now i can't really say that the Tascam offer a better sound, but it is in the same league....So if you are trying to decide.... do like "NIKE" and "Just Do It" (it is worth every penny). p.s I am using it with my Macbook pro 3,1 (4gig of ram) Logic Pro 9, It is an amazing controller..
