    anyone have any experiance with these: http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/PS04/

    my boss has the ps-02 and it was freaking cool. this one is supposed to be better. is it worth it? does it have a ton of options and what not? my boss more or less explained it to me that its an "entire recording studio except for the engineers and all the fancy s*#&". but he had nothing but good things to say.

    what do yall think?

    I just got one and am still learning how to use it. It seems like a really decent unit. Nice and portable. :)

    If you haven't checked out this site yet ( http://www.2090.org/zoom/bbs/index.php ), do so.

    You may find that there is a 'hiss' when you have guitar/bass plugged in. Read this... http://www.2090.org/zoom/bbs/viewtopic.php?t=1369 to see.

    That was the only issue I had, and I fixed it using the prescribed method (opening up the case and installing a ribbon cable to shield the noise that the led screen makes). Mine was passed warranty when I did it though.

    It's a great unit for portability. One of the best out there for the money.
