I was looking for an audio / MIDI interface on which I can connect all my devices with basic mixing functions. Here we have two entrances with pramp, two and four line input AUX input, MIDI in / out, send / return and direct outputs. I have two microphones above my POD and my synth electro-acoustic guitar. In 24bit/44.1kHz, we can make 4in/2out simultaneously without any pb. Direct monitoring is very simple to work. The pramp / trs converters are good for the price range (a thousand times better than the Roland U8 I had before). The look is also trsrussi, mtallise faade, robust buttons, makes it a lot better than the picture.
I use it with a Mini PC Biostar PIV 2.8GHz, 40GB HD 7200tr, 512.


There is a CD with drivers and manual in PDF franais. It seems that there is also a printed manual with the latest version. Some soft drinks are provided audio (VSTi, Sampletank free and a light version of Live).
Installation of drivers without pb on XP. I use ASIO in Cubase SL 2, I've never had a crash in four months of use. The menu is very simple config driver, otherwise everything is rgler directly on the interface and is handy.


No bp stability of drivers, so I did not even look if t had been days! I have a latency between 10 and 15ms rglage with a "medium" (compromise stabilitperfo), nickel for VSTi so. I use it with Cubase SL 2, Battery and Sampletank Free, everything works well together trs. I did qq live recordings in a 4in simultaneously works well, it should be the limit of what USB is capable but trs qd same stable.


I've had four months, I had long before changing my hsit U8, and I would do without hsiter this choice, especially since prices much lower ... For me it is the IDAL in a small home studio for models / components. The sound is good, it is stable and the look is nice, and for my personal use I did not feel limited by its possibilities. I would like to point ngatif but frankly I do not see ...
