Good audio-interface, decent for home guitar recording.

I bought this interface for playing/recording electric guitar. I did a lot of research on audio interfaces and this one seems to be decent for it's price category. Mind that I want to focus my review on guitar-related features!

Advantages:

+Great overall: solid design; usb-powered; support up to 24-bit/192 kHz; good sound; easy to use; mobile; includes good software.

+Nice auto-sens feature (I don't use it, though)

+Stable drivers, which allow you to use one program through ASIO without muting other non-ASIO sounds. So playing backing tracks in your media player or watching online videos is not a problem when your DAW is loaded.

+Low latency with no audio glitches. I use 24-bit/96 kHz mode, 192 samples. Full latency is 9.64 ms.

+Great pre-amps, with maximum instrument input level of +18dBu. This parameter is not listed in specs, but it's critical for high-output passive guitar pickups if guitar is connected to interface directly. With +18dBu you can avoid clipping with any pickups.

Disadvantages:

-Output knob regulates both speakers and headphones.

-Hi-Z impedance is only 680 kOhm, while standard is 1 mOhm. This parameter is also not listed in specs, and lower than standard impedance supposes it should cut high frequencies a bit. However, when comparing sound recorded with interface vs. instrumental preamp+interface, I can't really hear the difference.

-Signal/Noise Ratio is not studio quality: my measurements show -103 dB (A-weighted). So, when guitar is just plugged in and your input plugins are set to high-gain, you'll hear some amount of noise, but it's still good enough for home recording, since no noise cuts through while playing.

Conclusion:
This interface serves me as decent home mini-studio, keeps it simple, and I have zero problems with it. Really happy with my choice. Edit: some more interesting interfaces [for guitar recording] are present on the market now, which didn't exist when I bought this interface. But I'm still happy with this one.

Lacking on mid frequencies

Was really surprised when I heard the sound. Its actual very noticable that this audio interface is lacking of mid frequencies. It does have less low as well but mid frequencies is its week point and makes everything sound fake and without a body. I bought this product for its direct monitoring and other features (VS Preamps, 192kHz) but didnt expect to have such a big difference in sound between other audio interfaces.

good value, good sound

At times the auto-sens will occasionally sabotage a track if left on for every guitar part or voice track. However, it's been helpful for persistent percussion lines and my analogue synths. As a few other people have mentioned the output is also the phone volume, yes this can be slightly frustrating when you are in the process of recording. On the other hand if you're anything like me and enjoy mixing and listening quietly it can actually be an asset as you will be forced to mix at the same volume that you comfortably want to hear the track at. Often people allow their tracks to be far too loud because they are really listening at a quieter level than the sound is playing at. Then they end up over compressing after thinking they have proper levels.
Auto-sens isn't useless and I probably should get to know the feature better. The quality of sound coming out is not to be shamed and at an agreeable price. Much better than my last AD converter. And a nice bonus is the style of the quad-capture, the orange led display is nice and subtle with sturdy dials and aluminium chassis.

Very easy to set up and the driver works very well

I have used an Edirol UA-25 & UA-25ex in the past and had some driver issues although generally they were very good interfaces. This is an improvement in that the driver seems to have no issues at all and the software interface is also very good.
I would highly recommend!

Overall I was delighted with this as my first recording interface, and would I recommend it to anyone.

It was very quick and easy to set up. All that needed to be done was to install the drivers onto the computer with the CD provided, change the input/output on the audio settings/ preference on the DAW (in my case FL studio) and then plug it in.

The auto-sens button is an excellent feature which instantly sets the input level so as not to get distortion. It simply involved pushing the auto-sens button, playing the loudest part of the section to be recorded, and pressing the button again which sets the input level appropriately.

I have used the interface with excellent results for electric guitar, electric bass and also using both inputs at once for singing and guitar. It is possible to plug in all of these directly into the interface due to its "direct box" functionality. Sound Quality is excellent, while also having no noticeable latency.

The unit is also built very sturdily with its aluminium case, and has an attractive display.
