Yeah, I don't know how I could justifiably recommend buying this if your DAW has any equivalent. It'll like likely get you 80% of the way there. This is a stand out model but...meh, think of the listener. Do they give a fuck? Likely is not. If you're an idiot like me who go a big ol' bundle cuz Cyber Monday? Yeah, still...don't sweat this one. Get something else. Nice to have & use it a lot but I dunno if I'd buy it again.
