Couple of days ago, I’ve received my Propellerhead Balance. After some tests, I can say it sounds really great and preamps are very VERY good!
The front input selector buttons are very easy to use. You can have multiple input sources permanently connected, and then choose which you record with the input buttons. Love the feeling, It’s like using an old school hi-fi amplifier!
Clip-safe is also a great feature, a back-up against clipping distortion. When it’s enabled, sections of audio clips that have clipped are shown by red areas. All is not lost — just click the clip’s ‘CS’ button or choose the ‘Heal Clip Safe Clips’ menu item and it’s substituted with a distortion-free version. Very cool and it might become handy. It also works as an Ignition Key for Reason, so no more usb dongles.
Plus it looks fantastic!!!
