See data from the manufacturer.
Very honorable for that price, it was better from 250 €.


I use it mainly in live monitoring mode to repeat:
Latency perfect, unnoticeable <10ms, and without "noise" of the latency, even with nothing to report all VST provides activated.
Better sound quality than my Q. Three Joekeem
They are very good.
Monitoring closely the knob must be turned all the way to have a standard line Hon.
Very good finish.
I use reaper.

I never tried other audio interfaces.
The preamps are better than those of an invoice Alesis multimix.
However, a mixing desk, she has gain reserve, not a USB sound card.


No problems with drivers, no crashes on W7 64-bit / 4 cores.


I was first disappointed by the lack of gain, but it turns out that I am very satisfied:

Then after a month: no worries of drivers, very small, portable, beautiful, LED clipping very practical, very good VST fournits ...
For € 135 it's a steal.

I did not want to acquire quadcapture because it is more expensive and unnecessary option for me because I regretted the lack of gain, but I had the same worries, even worse, on the latter: So I do not regret my choice.

For € 135 you'll get a red jewel in addition sounds great!
I would do this choice!
Remember, this is my first sound card.
