- Which technical specifications motivated your choice?
XLR stereo input (I don't need anything more), RCA input, MIDI...
- What do you use it for?
Audio recording and playback
What's your setup (motherboard, CPU, RAM, hard drive,...)?
Average PC: 1.66 GHz CPU, 1 GB Ram
- Do you use it with other instruments or systems (mixing console, preamp, DtD, ...) and what's your setup?
I connect the output of my Soundcraft EPM6 to both XLR inputs and the sound goes to the PC via Firewire. I also use a Yamaha DX7 Midi keyboard (I use it as a master keyboard but also when I have math homework ^_^)
- Did you have any problems during the installation?
- Did you have any incompatibility problems?
- How complicated is the overall configuration?
Power up, plug in, select the sample rate and that's it...
- Is the user's manual clear and comprehensive?
Is the driver stable?
No problems with Vista (for once!) Notice: There is no control software so you must make all settings on the hardware, which isn't a lot fun considering the size of the knobs. A small Roland-like utility would be a better solution... but it's a small detail.
- Are they up-to-date?
Yes I guess...
- Which software do you use?
Reason 3, Recycle 2.1 and Cubase SX3
- What's the latency of your system?
Between 0 and 7 ms
- How many tracks can you record/playback simultaneously?
I haven't made an actual test but I'd say several dozens
- How long have you been using it?
About six months
- Which feature do you like the most / the least?
Pros: Sound quality, virtually no latency, RCA and MIDI inputs, sturdy housing.
Cons: No control software, small knobs.
- Did you try any other models before buying it?
Someone lent me a Motu 828mkII, which is great, but not that much better than this small interface...
- How would you rate its value for money?
- Based on your experience, would you buy this product again?
Buy it if you don't have a lot of money BUT do want good-quality gear. If you have enough money, check out Motu or RME...
