What caractristques tech. have motivated your choice?

-First, It is available in 8 audios among XLR and 1/4 and its 8 outputs 1/4.
-Then Is that it plugs into Firewire, so it's more reliable than the usb!
-The Eight audio outputs can be assign virtual instruments.
-The Possibility to be connected in two sets!
-capacit to record 192 kHz


Which instruments and systems (console, prampli, DTD ...) you use it and how connections?

I use it with a mixer Behringer eurorack 12 entries. To which the instruments, I use with electric guitar, a keyboard Technic, mixer DJ SCS.1m a Korg synthesizer Er mkii and m-audio microphones.

to which the connection I almost only uses XLR cable. I love the fact that he provided a cable panouis.


For what purpose?

I record in the studio and the fact that it is not too big will allow me to record directly from the musicians! I record guitarists and bassists, pianists, a singer / vocalist,

I also use it as a card for his DJing, the 8 audio outputs rvlent be very useful.
Especially since it has its quality compar to map outputs made for DJing who has only RCA output! That having output and input XLR or 1/4 are so expensive, often on top of $ 1,000,00.

When I connect Mixe all outputs to input my Behringer Mixer and-controlling EQs is better than a dj program.


What is your config (Map mother / CPU / Ram / Hard, ...)?

I use it with a vista laptop and macbook pro 2011 0SX; 6.8.6




USE

Are the drivers stable? Are they often put day

The drivers are very stable, they have never permit me tomb.
They are put - days from time to time ... I remember the last time have!

Pro Tools 10
Traktor
Ableton Live
FL Studio 9

if sometimes I use

Adobe Audition
Adobe Soundbooth
Torq 2.0


What you get lag?

I never touch because it never made me default!


How many tracks you record / play simultaneously?

I never try more than 8 tracks.




IMPLEMENTATION

The installation being done without problem?
Installation is very simple and requires no Gnis be a computer!

Is Gnrale configuration is easy?

yes enough for a basic registration. Otherwise there has read the manual (a lil flies only) to understand all the functionalities of the DSP Mixer if we are not very familiar with the sound hardware.
By the way, the suit mixer (blender) DSP is so useful once you understand how it works!


Have you encountered the incompatibilits?

yes with Sony Sound Forge to record if not for reading that's ok.


Is the manual clear and sufficient?

yes the manual is very well and explains very well the operation of the machine.


One bmole! Is having to have the computer shut down or in sleep to be able to connect but otherwise everything is great!


NOTICE GLOBAL

How long have you use it?

I've had a year bientt and she never made me default.
physically or computationally!

Contrarement and many other advice I have read, none of my knobs did ramolit or breakage.


Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

but not the sound engineers that I know and sound technician me about the l. So I have to rent a one week then I realized c'tait excelling for the offered price.

What is the particular feature you like best and least?

The +:
My much: his Standalone mode.

-Its Among eight combined XLR to 1/4 among.
-His DSP suit mixer.
-Its Reliability.
-The 8 1/4 TRS outputs
-The Cable included with Panous. (Midi i / o, WC i / o, SPDIF)
-2 X I / O ADAT (for plugging another audio interface of its kind Profire 2626)

The -:

- It is the duty to have the computer shut down or in sleep to be able to connect the computer.

How do you report qualitprix?

Excelling, after having store for a year of sound cards on the web and on the forums is the one that was giving the best performance for its price and its characteristics.

I told myself that even if it's more than looking cards with only 2 or 3 among audio, it's worth it because it will never plant if very rarely! (Unless one seeks to plant obviously!)

With experience, you do again this choice?

Yes very definitely! Btw I'll buy a SECOND.
