The features that attracted me the most are:
The number of inputs / outputs (4 mono or 2 stereo) XLR or Jack with insert behind the card and the level mic / guitar Line facade.
The meters are very practical and true (although I feel it captures the master of the signal without effects on my ableton which can make typing in the red even with a limited eg ... ).
The practical side of Headphone Select for the headphone output, a mix knob for the signal in or out or in between. Phantom power, and switch level mic / guitar. Gains of knobs.
It covers the 16/24 bit and 44 kHz / 96 kHz.


I turn to the config following: 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 / 8GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Mac OS X mid 2011 (running in dual core 2x4 for now).

UTILIZATION

I had no installation problems, I think Akai-corrected bugs early version. I can listen to music on the net with, as I can work in computer music

I use Ableton native or Waves VST plugins but mainly as Razor, U-he ... and they look pretty good even now my computer lags (BAWE it consumes these brands) 2x4 go dual core. In contrast, with native plugin Ableton we can put a lot of track with quite substantial chaining.

Then I use to get the hardware (comps, synths ...) and I've used Live without worries. (As against the card is a bit grossse to transport)

GETTING STARTED

Installation was made without problem as I said above, I rarely even too much hassle to install with friends, for jam sessions. So no worries to report incompatibilities my side.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a few months and I've never had any major problems with the card has a few bugs that I had it or not detected because the lighting was probably occurred at a bad time. I had a m-audio fast track before.

This is not LA sound card, but a good face (a pretty cool aviator side), it is stable even after several hours of consecutive use. But precisely at this price it has many more advantages than disadvantages.
