◦ What characteristics have motivated your choice?
8 mic / guitar pro quality, 16 channels ADAT, S / PDIF to AES / EBU, we can all connect to this interface.
◦ For what purpose?
Sound card and mixer with DSP for stage or mixing. Tested in conjunction Guitar / Vocals / Hearts / Bass / Drums Electronics, as a mixer with reverb, compressions, EQ ....
Tip for use as a VST effects BFD: BFD is a virtual instrument drum and can be configured with many separate outputs: Kick, Snare, Hat, TOM1 ..... To apply DSP effects on each slice of drums (For example, a compression on the kick, an EQ on the toms ...), simply connect inputs and outputs with 2 ADAT optical cable (12 &euro; for two) to see 16 extra tracks in the software mixing. Next, in your preferred CAD, we must assign the outputs of BFD:
Kick ADAT = 1
Snare = ADAT 2
ETC .....
You find all the separate tracks and VST mixer in CueMix FX, a 24 track digital console. You can also link the inputs and outputs S / PDIF and AES / EBU to add another 4 tracks or 28 tracks with DSP (8 analog and 20 tracks for VST)
It is even possible to make tracks for the entire Drum group eg: in the FX mixer CueMix must use the bus (BUS MIX Drum Appoint and assign it to a digital output also called Mix Drums) in the table corresponding mixing, transfer all the tracks except the drums. In the mixer main mix (Master Out), mutating all the drum tracks kick, snare ... Runway Mix group except Drums. That's the trick "how to use DSP live on VST)
◦ What is your config (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk ,...)? MacBook
◦ With what instruments or systems (console, preamp, DTD ...) you are using and how connections?
I'll buy a motu 8pre to add 8 preamps and to record an acoustic drum.

UTILIZATION

I use Cubase 5 and BFD with electronic drums live. I arrive at a total latency of 4MS without cracking and with no crashes

GETTING STARTED

My little sister has installed the drivers and softwares

OVERALL OPINION

Awesome! 3 months, used in home studio, live as a mixer is much smaller than an N12, quality preamps is to go.
