louis-md's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
- What technical specifications have motivated your choice?
She lends itself t, so no choice =)
- For what purpose?
Direct recording of guitar, bass, voice, midi Roland SPDS and hyper Basic keyboard, all on the mixer Fruity Loops 8 of electrorock
- What is your config (Map mother / CPU / Ram / Hard, ...)?
Two guitarists, one singer, claviriste, a bassist and a drummer ^^
Otherwise, a PC with a DUO 2.4Ghz, 2GB of RAM, under Vista.
Well, in terms of the installation, you install the driver, plug the firewire, is launched Fruity and Go!
Everything is super light, easy and fast installation on Vista, with a small interface for generals parameters (buffer size, samplerate will jusqua 192khz anyway) and a handy monitoring screen.
Super simple, yet effective.
In terms of recording, the sound of a bass or guitar is really beautiful. Warm, round, the first 2 switches tracks fashion instrument sounds really good. After for voice, using a Sennheiser 855 and a Shure SM 58 for bass. Everything goes niquel and my Multipad recorded in stereo sound makes it completely transparent. The knobs are agrables (this is important when memememe if in time they grsillent when you go up to the 90-95%. But nothing serious, nothing serves its rise as high check in. Sampling rate is really incredibly lev is no over-sampling and sound very transparent. And the 2 outputs indpendantes headphones can be useful hyper rvler.
Just one problem, its can come only from my config, but I have problems of stability on Fruity Loops, its just happens to dcrocher his whole its cutting, simply redraw the buffer but its enough and make it impossible to use live
For what is asked (4 analog tracks, and between MIDI), it really fulfills its role. Multitrack recording is really a pleasure, although with time I regret that there is not a little more tracks
The phantom power, I do not use it (I'd like ^^) but it's still the same couple pair track.
The very reliable gear and very good quality in terms of Pramp though I also regret too Leve latency for live use. So good interface, especially if you do not want normment runs and we do not play live with but little good tracks (even very good) drafts. Alesis Vive! ^^

DavidMusik's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
This interface is very complete and perfectly suited to my needs. The main features are:
4 Neutrik combo inputs, 2 line outputs, digital I / O, an ADAT format input, sampling up to 192kHz, firewire, midi, etc..
The four mic inputs are very good qualities and allow me to save my comfortably upright piano (with 3 microphones) but also my bass and guitar directly with the high input impedance. All connected simply FireWire on my laptop.
A great addition to the passage: this interface has inserts on all 4 inputs, ideal to add in the chain of recording a small compressor!
Alesis is serious: no problems during installation, the drivers are up to date on the manufacturer's website.
If necessary, the instructions in French is clear and well translated. The soft drinks are provided ergonomic and easy to use. The latency is 8 ms with my Cubase.
I think I have any say.
I use this interface for over six months is that of happiness. It suits me perfectly and I can work very flexibly. Its strong point for me is the four analog inputs and digital interface that also allows me to recover the signals of my Emu Vintage Pro and my mc909 groovebox. If you have questions about this interface or on my way to work, I invite you to log on my blog ( https://blog.davidmusik.com ) . It is my pleasure to answer your questions.
* What technical characteristics have motivated your choice?
The rapidity of firewire, 4 tracks recordable, the possibility to return a guitar or bass via between Hi Z
* Which instruments or systm (console, prampli, DTD ...) and you use the connection with what? ...
Prampli No, I use it mostly with guitars, bass, vocals, and a MIDI keyboard and a sound output (amp, speakers)
* For what purpose?
Mainly composed of the recording, with real beats, and the south.
* What is your config (motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk ,...)?
My config intelcore 2 Duo with XP "
Level of drivers, no worries, we dl everything and hop operation immediate,
basic enough for my needs, I use Cubase LE came with. I did not DOWNLOADS last 2 years, so I do not know if the updates are frequent providers.
recording 4 tracks simultaneously.
Behavior and negligible latency is firewire ..
carefree, a straightforward interface.
BUT the default one seems to have encountered a problem with the software "Mumble" (software to speak at the microphone when playing online), often the map "dcroche" must unplug and reboot the map .
The manual is sufficient.
I use it for 2 years, I like many tracks, the fast firewire.
I have not tried other models, this one presenting my report for me the best quality price.
I have not encountered major problems with this sound card, so yes I do it again this election
