PCM96 SurroundThe PCM96 Surround is a great box! Hardware / Software, the best of both worlds. Mixing in Protools I use only hardware reverbs for my main reverbs. Using the PCM96S as a Plug-in now makes it possible to map it to my ICON and control all the parameters right from the console. I can save all my settings and recall them for any remix and since ninety percent of the mixing I do is in surround, being able to recall all my settings in an instant keeps my work flow moving.
