Propellerhead Balance

I'm in the market for a new soundcard.

Inexplicably, Balance is now selling for dirt cheap here in Japan. Is it worth picking one up? Also just wondering if anyone has had any experience with the Roland Quad Capture? Cheers in advance.

Absolutely worth picking up, unless you need to record more than 2 channels at the same time.

Sounds good. How's the latency? I'd also like to use it with Pro Tools. Any experience in that area? Thanks for the reply.

You should find latency to be as good as anything else you can find. The only downside to using it outside of propellerheads is that the clip safe feature wont work as it's software dependant.

I'd say the downside is that you use Balance "outside of propellerheads" anyway ...

Thanks for your 'balanced' views, chaps. (Sorry, couldn't help myself).

It's excellent, especially if you're a laptop user. Works an absolute charm with my Macbook.

I bought one today. Registered Essentials, installed drivers, plugged my audio-technica headphones into it and goose bumps has thorn the t-shirt off my body!
I am not an expert in external card subject really was just hunting for one like yourself and decided to go Propeller.

I already have MIDI in out box so I did not hunt for card with it and in terms of sound quality for this price it is excellent. I have been slightly disappointed with how my ATH-M50 sounds when i first bought them and have been using with Realtek HD onboard ha!Balance just made them awesome.

I am not trying to advertise this interface, just writing about my first impression from around 30 minutes ago.

I also bought one in Japan! The price is ridicolous
Anyway I guess there is no way to shut it down right?
I had some problem outside Reason (I mean, outside music software)

Yeah! I thought for 14,800 yen, it's crazy not to buy it. So I did.

Oh, well... I'm using mine with Pro Tools with no problems. What other software are you using?
