Another thought I'll share: after using the FP10 for a few years
(okay, when I bought it it was called a firepod) I bought a Mackie
Onyx 1640 w/ the firewire option. Using Jack I was able to daisy-
chain the two together to get 24in/12out. For $1300 (refurb) the
preamps on that Mackie sound awesome. It's also possible to string
together three FP10s to do basically the same thing (just more
outputs). It's a perfect set up for mobile live-to-multitrack if
you're into that sort of thing.
