Has anyone ever used it or know much about it?
I have Adobe Premiere Pro, the latsest version. Will it work easily with it?

Thank you

Seems like a pretty capable little box at first glance.
I didn't see a chart of recording times for the different size media.
The gig + cards ain't cheap. It could be more expensive than analogue tape depending on sample and bit settings.
I really like the balanced inputs.

If theres a way to genlock and send time code out of it, I might have to look into one of these things.

M-Audio sound cards have always worked flawlessly for me. If the marriage to AVID hasn't changed anything, I would imagine this will be a solid little tool.

I don't get these "does X replace Y" threads. Of course it does, but no it doesn't.

The DAT format works fine for what it is; a small, portable digital audio capture medium. So does M / X / Y / Z audio. Modern digital formats can be transferred and archived at faster than real time, so they have an advantage in post shops set up for them. DAT's are self archiving - you put 'em in the box and onto the shelf until next year or decade, long after you've lost the cue sheets for this production, or the software you're using has gone obsolete. So which is better for your needs? You decide.
