Audio-Technica ATH-M50X Review.
I can honestly see why these headphones are rated so highly. The style, comfort, and overall great sound is what makes these headphones a great buy. During my time with these headphones, I actually purchased some for myself. I had let several people wear the headphones, and I never heard one negative thing in regards to the comfort or the sound. Price considering, these are the king of over the ear headphones. There is nothing within this price range at sub $200 that even comes close.

Roland-Studio Capture Review
I've been looking for a long time for an interface that made sense for my setup. I was never able to get everything I wanted until I found this unit. It is robust, sounds amazing, has MIDI, lots of flexibility, lots of inputs/outputs, and it is still very compact. Its easy enough to use given its power. If you like having everything plugged in like I do but don't want a rack unit taking up a lot of space (yes this unit can be rack-mounted if you desire) then this may be the perfect unit for you. It was the perfect find for my current studio. It is the heart of my studio and is a class act recording interface.
Here are the specs.
16 audio inputs and 10 audio outputs, including 12 premium mic preamps (VS PREAMP)
16 XLR / ¼” TRS combo inputs
10 ¼” TRS outputs
High-performance USB 2.0 audio interface for studio and mobile production
VS STREAMING delivers ultra-stable, low-latency driver performance for Windows and Mac
AUTO-SENS intelligently sets optimal input levels for all preamps
Individual input/output meters and input channel buttons
Four independent, software-controlled monitor mixes
Expand your I/O by using two STUDIO-CAPTUREs together, both controlled with a single driver
2U rackmount ears included

A GREAT VALUE OPTION FOR A PRO MIC.
This mic is no one trick pony! Considering the price, pattern options, bass roll-off switch and 20dB pad....it's a smart option for budget minded musicians. Sounds consistently good through PreSonus, Focusrite, and Audient mic pre-s I use! This is my main vocal mic here in the studio I have also used it with an AKG220 on a live, 2-mic drum recording, it sounded great. The different polar patterns are nice to have! The case and shock-mounts are added bonuses, Do yourself a favor , if your looking for a great affordable professional mic , Pick one of these up.
