Small interface, lgre, transportable, and complements.

4 in (2 XLR combo jack in front with 48v power supply, 2 line in jack on the rear)
6 out jack in the rear
Midi in / out and SPDIF in / out via the rear exploded
Headphone volume with front master indpendant

2 firewire 400 port for possibly chain multiple tricks

I use a MacBook Pro 13 "mid-2009.


She begins to have a few years derrire her, and I more often dcrochages.

The firewire interface loses sync for a second, then everything works again as normal.

The pramps not gain either madness ... With a microphone that does not much below the elbow (type B2 for a vote this week dernire VCU) pramp the bottom and it is still far from saturating ... Fortunately, the background noise is far trs, thus pushing the gain APRS has done everything is exploitable.

Do not esprer grain of any color coming from the pramps is a neutral end point, nothing flattering.

Trs correct latency, normal for an interface of this range.


It can not be easier with the macbook: full plug and play. You plug the firewire, it works and appears in the panel config 'gnral the mac and the input / output DIFFERENT software. (I use Ableton Live, Logic Pro and ProTools 9. Simple small compared Reserved ProTools, it works perfectly out, but I can not save. Has does not bother me because I do not m 'to serve as the mix, and my version of Pro Tools HD 9 is not exactly very strong LGAL, m'voyais?)

With my pc before, c'tait almost as simple. Just a quick driver install, which worked perfectly as I remember.


Perfect for my needs, good price, I have for years and not spare me if it slams. And as late as possible!

Reserved because of one small firewire dcrochages from time to time.
