"The 1608 is an important tool in our curriculum. It allows our students to have the opportunity to work with an audio signal path and analog summing that is of exceptional quality. In our mixing class we have our students mix a project completely 'in the box' and then mix the same project across the 1608 architecture using 'real' EQs and compressors. The 1608 wins every time."
