I am looking to get an inexpensive simple interface to start doing some digital recording. I just noodle when I record. I have a little Fostex tape unit now. I was wondering if anyone has tried the new Mackie Spike unit? If so, would you recommend it? Also, if anyone out there has recently upgraded and has a small unit that I could use with my Mac PowerBook G4, and you are interested in selling it, let me know.
