Call me crazy but why don't you plug them in and try them
Yes yes, but what I wanted to know was if I would be getting the best out of them. Obviously, that's hard to know when you have nothing to judge it against...
But I'd get used to the Nucleus first and decide whether or not it does what you require before looking for alternatives. I suspect you'll be quite happy with it.
Ah, thanks Hugh. That was the answer I was hoping for!
So, onto my question - am I right in thinking that the Nucleus also uses the ethernet to connect to the DAW as if so, I can't use both by the sounds of it
It does indeed use the ethernet port for the control surface functions, whereas the audio interface functions via USB.
I could afford it but doubt I've got the talent to make such an investment justifiable!
I'm not sure I have the talent either, but I landed a couple of lucky punches and scored a couple of ad jobs. This one earned me the equivalent of £12,500, so the missus couldn't complain too much about me spunking two-and-a-half on the SSL
