The console is comprhensible first glance. Everything is simple and works the first time. No need to have done a training ingnieur sound. However, APRS three days of testing, I still have not russi connect the camera to my computer with Cubase LE4 software supplied with the camera! Should be trained in advanced computer technician. Trs is complicated for a layman.
The device offers an extraordinary record of any iPod. The purity of the sound is perfect. The limit prevents any distortion dsagrable.
The effects are pre-configured, however, trs ordinary and a little amateur even more that you can not customize them. Suggre plutt I use a external effects device such as the TC-Helicon VoiceLive I connected easily.
I use the unit for 1 week only. I've had fun ... except for connection to computer via USB. I pay $ 299 on E-Bay. that price, I highly recommend the purchase of the unit. But beware! This console does not replace a multi-track recorder. If you stammer at last verse, he must return at all beginners! Use only with good quality lments (micro etc.)..
$ 300, you do not risk a lot and you'll get your money shot sr.
4XLR 2 Jack Stereo, 2 For 1 coupled with a multi-purpose.
USB audio interface in parallel monoring to record / listen
For analog parts, one branch and it works. Simple
PC interface for the game: Simple yes and no.
Yes because there is no driver to install. So, it works right away (in windows driver).
It is problematic for those who want to record in Cubase for example: you have to install an external ASIO driver to get there. I used ASIO4ALL and AC went perfectly.
Nothing to say for the iPod part.
Manual: Clear and sufficient
It's good product, it worked the first time.
The sound is very good. Very punchy (good dynamic) and thin enough (good discernment of low signal dynamics).
She blows lightly on my condenser microphone with phantom power, but nothing too problematic, the ambient noise in my room there is for something. Everything is very pleasant to use.
The EQ is powerful, a little too wide for my taste, but to use the stage is enough to isolate the instruments. For the home, ca is not much.
The sound is excellent with an iPhone 3G: very clean, pleasant to use. For cons, the big problem is precisely the function IPod. Indeed, the internal regulator of IPod / Phone beyond generation 3 generates shock noise unbearable burden which affects the console. For once, when one uses such a device iPhone 3G or iPod last generation, a buzz kill is unbearable console. This super useful me until I discovered this great weakness. This noise can not be defeated.
It is my great sadness.
So, I'm super happy with the console as the console, as an audio interface, too, is his appointment.
It allows for registration, his office is doing very well to mix with home studio sound quality very significant.
For cons, the I-Dock, big disappointment. There's a lot of work to do in-house EMC Alesis side to get a console quality. It does not work with all models of Pod, suddenly I advise those interested to try it closely in the store with their iPod / Phone and listen if the console makes noise by placing the ear above.
