Good sound quality, marred by the software and ergonomics

Cyprus Andrew, 16.04.2018
I bought this so I could use my PC as a recording studio. Out of the box, it worked well but when I downloaded the official drivers it became very flakey - every few minutes it would die and I'd have to unplug it and plug it in again to get it back. Deleting the drivers lost the ASIO capability, but at least it works reliably. The drivers referred to 4 inputs (1/2, 3/4) but, in fact, it has two inputs - there is another pair on the back, but they are accessed with a push button. Unfortunately, that's also on the back so it's quite awkward to switch over to using the rear inputs. Sound quality is really good - big step up over the PC's built in sound card.

Great interface for the small purse

Daniel G. 769, 26.05.2016
The ESI is a great little interface, where you do not spend much money and in proportion a super sound. I myself use it with Ableton on Windows 10 (works great, I had only thought about Windows 10). With the driver you can adjust the latency and re-live in the PC without any cable!
Have it unfortunately not yet with a microphone to try, only only with the normal normal entrance, but that still comes! I am as said very satisfied with it;)

The processing I like also very good: it is relatively small, thus saves a lot of space on the desk. It is very easy and I could not find any defects on the outside.

Visually, it is also very nice with the metal trim, which is steel-brushed and orange-red shines.

Still I have the tried and tested software not tried, but the only thing that is with it, I find very nice: D
