Closest StoreSurrey, British Columbia
I don't know what I did in my studio before the Pure 2 became the Center piece of my set up... I instantly noticed a huge difference in the sound of my music and I used to have an antelope isochrone OC X already in my rig ... Not only is this piece incredible quality ... Anytelope's customer service is unbelievable... I have a legacy TDM rig and they made sure I had the correct software to run the pure 2 smoothly... I highly recommend this unit for tracking , mixing and mastering!!!!
