    It looks like no one really knows when they are going to have the 400f in stock, so I'm thinking of jumping ship and finding another unit. I don't need a lot of channels; even 2 would be enough for me. I'd like good quality converters. Any suggestions?

    Thanks! :D

    Tyler,

    Check your local Guitar Center. I walked in off the street, and they had two in stock. I walked out with one for $650! It's awesome! I plugged it into my Mac, loaded the Tracktion 2 software, and the control console, and was recording tests through my mics in 10 minutes!

    I haven't had much of a chance to play with it since. I have a newborn (two weeks old), and he has kept us very busy, along with our three year old.

    More to follow.

    I'm gonna try that. We're headed by a GC this next weekend. I'll just grab one there. Thanks for the tip Blueser because that's really the one that I want.

    I got a 400F that should be in tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest. I'll make some clips of some stuff I've been promising to make clips of first! Fun, fun, fun!!!!! :D

    Hey Tyler,

    Did you get it yet. I really like mine alot so far. It is so much better than my M-Audio Omni Studio! I also really like the Tracktion 2 software, but I wish it came with all the plugs that are included if you bought the retail version of T2. That is a bit of a bummer!
