All requests and remarks posted on this blog, have been shared with the developers of the concerning products. The Feature Requests blog is my independent way of sharing, and recording both ideas and annoyance about software. Improvement is the main goal.
There is really no good all-in-one solution for the home pruducer who needs 1 mic input, 1 or 2 guitar inputs and 3+ stereo line inputs for drumcomputers and synths.
I currently use my Edirol FA-66, which unfortunatally lacks extra line inputs.
Available products have multiple microphone inputs, that no homeproducer needs.
Personally, I would love to see a product with the following specs:
-1 high-end mic pre-amp/channelstrip
-2 hi-z guitar inputs
-4 stereo line inputs
-an onboard 24bit/ 192kHz AD converter
-inputs selectable from within any DAW
-output mixed to direct monitoring, combined with USB input
-optional a compressor, and reverb for direct monitoring
-optional a mixer for channels, with a switch to select which channels are output via USB
