The x-station is awesome!! Besides being an excellent midi controller, the actual hardware synth part of it is pretty awesome (the distortion is really neat). Also, the x-station has preprogrammed templates so that all the parameters automatically link up with various vst synths you may use (check out which vsts have templates here http://88.208.201.18/answerbase/article.php?id=028).

The sound card in it pretty good also. We use it for our live performances, but we dont record with it (even
though we could...we have a firewire sound card that is slightly better for recording purposes.) The bad thing i could say is that the sliders are a little cheap feeling, but besides that it rocks!! And all this works with just a USB cable, including power!!

Hope this helps

Reconding directly through the USB generates clips with the sound of his synth. i think first it was something about my hardware, but no, more users experienced that, but if you record from it's out it's grate (i'm talking only of the recording).

For a controller it's really great, but have only 2 outputs, and 2 imputs. that's not a problem if you use a firewire soundcard toguether, but if you plan using only the X-Station, Think about this, it also has 2 midi out's so you can control 2 modules. and it's usb powered, no needs for loose the transformer.

Just wondering.....have you messed with your audio buffer size settings in your audio preferences? That seems to fix the clicking problem i have encountered in a similar situation (while recording through a usb cable from a hardware synth). It seemed that smaller buffer sizes worked better as long as you dont have a super intensive arrange loaded up.

This may or may not help, but i thought i'd throw it out there
