UTILIZATION

Gnrale configuration is simple. Using a word like the operation of a mixer core.
Personally I use it to rpter every week with my band and it's amazing how the quality of its rendering is good. Before I was using a behringer console, and I can tell you that we strongly feel the difference. Ds before you connect a microphone singing and we rode a little gain and volume morning breath! and nothing since I have this console Alesis! We feel that the quality of electronic components is much better.
To return to the fact, although Obviously I use this console to the recording. The same console in it nothing fancy to record, there is just connect it to PC via USB cable.
Any other configuration is done with the PC.
-Installation of drivers -> OK!
-Installed as sound card -> OK!
Rglage-inputs and outputs with software -> ok! But attention, we must know the software you use, but normally it's not complicated trs. But since when I install the console that I n'tais beginners in music software (Cubase SX3 uses j) I will not deny that I have a little galrer.

The manual is trs incomplet.bref explanations for franais, German and Spanish ... The most important explanations (such as software-) are in English. it's a shame ...

SOUNDS

As I said prcedemment no breath. a clear and fairly prcis.
A qualisation that works well. it is a pity we can not rgler more middles, and I find that the knobs are a level raction. I mean, it's all or nothing at times. For example: If you make a little "low", it nothing happens (or not), and then suddenly you go back a little and BOOM! but hey it works and then even when I use some of qua .. you can edit any of cubase. Any fawn a pure, still the best (well I prfre).
There are also built-in effects (FX) in the console. I use them just because their quality is average.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 months now. J'apprcie much the fact that you can record multitrack on the computer. Since I record mostly drum part being able to have each track dcompos on the computer helps a lot for mixing etc..
The quality of sound also made me much tonn. (No breath). Nothing to do with the poor consoles behringer console or other low-end: it is that I really saw the difference.
Report qualitprix: acceptable because it was truly a "home studio" for not too expensive. but I advise you to buy the right microphones for the best! and was worth it.
I think probably the same kind j'achterais console later volumes but also (more pro yet), but I am delighted with my purchase.
