Robust construction.

UTILIZATION

Simple and relatively intuitive.
Manuel succinct. Tural not need to use basic, but it lacks some info regarding some technical data: output the stereo on several headphones for example.


The table is easy to use: one button = one function, all signals are routed at will (to, insert, bus, firewire, control room, etc. ...), all in analog.
16 between the same, with the same features on all units (PSU fantme, to, etc. ....)

Ct concerning computer I could found a bug in XP: frquence the table is not adjustable from the driver, but since the squenceur.
If you happen to run a sound of another frquence (the sounds of Windows Explorer eg 22Khz). And the table is in RULES 44Khz, plant, and the table is positioned 96Khz. The VAS Mackie, although fast, was unable dpanner me, I found the solution by chance.

After removal of windows sounds, the machine is stable trs, but the problem is still Submitted for other files (mp3).
Trs annoying to use.
Otherwise the machine is performing trs, nothing else to report.

No significant problem with Vista.

Ultra-fast installation. Supplied with 3 m cable and firewire adapter on the number of port pins.

SOUNDS

The pramps are of good sound cards with superior quality entry-level type M-Audio (I could compare), and equivalent to a Motu. Trs of good stuff for the home studio semi-pro. We sometimes blame their lack of power following the microphones and / or instrument utiliss. Pass a certain threshold (more than 3 / 4), a breath appears.
A couple pramp Externally, the problem disappears (you can bypass the pramp the mackie but use its EQ and routing table).

The EQ is musical (the highs are not too "harsh", the low round) with 2 mdiums Settings, and a bypass button.

The converter does is work, but hard to compare to another product.

OVERALL OPINION

Using a home-studio and live.

No equivalent in this price range: 16 "real" mono tracks, EQ, converter and an almost infinite routing between the PC and the table!
Allen is the least complte the Midas twice the price ...

Live, prvoyez speakers with a big reserve of power. Home studio in far enough, the table may be just a little concert, according to the places you play.

Really a good product, a good Swiss Army knife ... except that it does not fit into a pocket.
Without the computer problem, I would have put 9 / 10
