Drivers on a PC without problems on XP
The software supplied with (Cubase LE 5) software is installed but the key is what she wants and I had to uninstall it and then put my Cubase SX 3 which works well.
I record 3 tracks max for now, but next to beef ...
Documentation only in English, you should download the FR
Instrument/R24 response is very good and I is not tried the direct PC.

Installation is all alone ...
The setup is simple, since neither nothing to configure.
You still have to follow the manual loan to avoid losing something.
And the manual is clear but not complete as always (you must know computer music)

I use it for 3 weeks and is getting better
I sort of BR600's excellent that with better effects.
I like the memory space and easily accessible 24 tracks
I do not like the fact that we can not assign an input jack to any track and change it without any disconnect.
The camera is great asses and they could have a bigger screen!
When we move from tracks 1-8 to 9-16, there is nothing to indicate the tracks recorded on 1-8
Little trouble in the fader.

The price (450 €) is very correct with respect to overall quality.

As there are choices to be 24 tracks including 8 simultaneous inputs at this price, I advise to all.
