The sound quality of the Focusrite preamps is excellent. The one knob compressors work very well and sound smooth even when driven hard. Great for Drums. The Octopre is a great companion/expansion for any audio interface with ADAT I/O. Operates up to 96khz. Most other similar units are 44.1khz - 48khz
