I purchased the 003 rack because i use protools and because it has many in/outputs. And at the time protools only worked with a digidesign interface.

The 003 Rack has the following inputs:
Mic inputs:
Connector: Four balanced XLR jacks
Mic Phantom Power: 48V
Line inputs:
Connector: Four balanced 1/4" jacks
Frequency Response: +/- 0.1 dB, 20 Hz - 20 kHz
Di inputs:
Connector: Four balanced 1/4" jacks
Frequency Response: +/- 0.1 dB, 20 Hz - 20 kHz
Aux inputs:
Connector: Two balanced 1/4" jacks
Frequency Response: +/- 0.1 dB, 20 Hz - 20 kHz

And the following outputs:

Line outputs:
Connector: Eight impedance balanced 1/4" jacks
Frequency Response: +/- 0.5 dB, 20 Hz - 20 kHz
Monitor outputs:
Connector: Two impedance balanced 1/4" jacks
Frequency Response: +/- 0.5 dB, 20 Hz - 20 kHz
Headphone outputs:
Connector: Two unbalanced 1/4" jacks
Frequency Response: +/- 0.5 dB, 20 Hz - 20 kHz

UTILIZATION

The latency you get is depends on the buffer size you use, at a low buffer size you will not have much latency.

And the drivers are pretty stable depending on your computer specs.

I personally use protools the most with the rack.



GETTING STARTED

I didn't experience compatibility issues, and the manual is clear and provides all the information you need.



OVERALL OPINION

I dont like the AD conversion, and the mic preamps are waste of money as well, if protools wasn't restricted to a digidesign interface back then i wouldn't have bought it.
