Right choice for a guitar player.

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

Advantages:

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

-Nice auto-sens feature

-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 (I used 24-bit/96 kHz mode)

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

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, I can't say this is a problem, since it affects direct input signal, not the final result.

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.

Excellent, Easy to Use Good Value Interface

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.

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!
