You will have problems from day 1 with this product!

I will state the pros quickly before I begin my rant: The sound quality is very good, the near-zero-latency DSP effects sound amazing, the unit is compact as hell for such an amazing amount of I/O.

I am a programmer and I know my stuff around audio. However, it took me HOURS to get the Zen Studio setup. Mind you, I am on a recent Macbook Pro with a Thunderbolt connection, so should be the fastest and most reliable setup. I already had to reset the device before I even could open their mixer. Their driver+firmware are a joke. The panel software is not the most intuitive but it's ok.

Now the deal breaker for me: Every time I changed a gain, volume, pan, etc. there were noticeable pops&crackles. I got in touch with their customer support, which was helpful. They advised me to try and install everything on another computer, which I did (on my Macbook Air) with care - using the USB connection, doing everything in the right order. Surprise, the Zenbook wouldn't show up. Funnily enough, it did show up on my AIR when I plugged it back into my PRO. Their software is cloud based and basically if they have server issues, you can forget about installing/upgrading. After fiddling and restarting everything I could, I got it working on my Air, the crackles were still there. I said ok, let's get the software out of the way, I unplugged all the cables except the power chord and only use the touchscreen to change gains: there were less crackles, but they were still there. This is unnaceptable for such a self-proclaimed high end device. Oh and BTW, at some point when I enabled one of their effects, it created a big pop in my monitors - not good..

I was meaning to either send it for replacement, either wait for some firmware updates to solve the issues, but I quickly went in favour of returning the item and never buying from Antelope again after reading the forum on Gearslutz dedicated to the Zen Tour. I highly suggest you to check that discussion before buying any of their product.
