Alesis MasterControl
I own the Alesis MasterControl for 6 months and waiting to have stable drivers for Windows 7 64 issue an opinion, and it seems that this is the case with the grind [v3.5.3.8671]. Before it was the cat and the equipment was inoperable (blue screens, loss of audio ...).
My choice was oriented on this material because I found it very full for the price to compete in more scalable and ADAT. I realized my plans on Edirol FA 101 and I was eager to have automated faders for automation. I use it in a home studio with a digital piano bass guitar and folk elec ...
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the machine and its ease of use.
I use a laptop asus core 2 duo 8600 Windows 7 64 and gauze it pretty even with loaded projects.

UTILIZATION

The new drivers seem stable. I observed a loss of audio sync with my SPDIF digital piano but it can come to my cable is not very fresh ....
I use Cubase 5 and observe a low latency on my config with projects from 5 to 8 tracks.

GETTING STARTED

Installation is super simple and the table is easy to configure and I have not needed the manual.
I'm having a little problem when my piano is in brach SPDIF and Firewire sync has not been established with the PC, the sound crackles with donf (in standalone mixer).

OVERALL OPINION

I've had six months but I use it thoroughly for three days (because of previous drivers that did not work). I had the opportunity to test the tascam and the motu and I edirol this machine is very well placed. The preamp input without being exceptional are nicer and warmer than the F 101.
I found this great table and not very expensive products meet equivalent.
