Exceptional quality at this price point
The Idle Rich, 02.03.2021
I should really give this a few more days, but I can't get over how few reviews there are on this so I feel duty bound to let you know that this is a top quality interface.

Build quality.
This is a cliche at this stage, but this IS built like a tank. The knobs and buttons are better than those on the ID22, I own that too. There's nothing loose or flimsy. It's a solid build.

Bah humbug.
Maybe it's just me, but every interface I've ever owned would hum when I plugged a guitar or bass into it. No hum with this, which I wasn't expecting and I've used lots of interfaces over the years. They do mention "de-coupling" and stuff about clean power etc, so it obviously counters the hum.

Sound quality.
It sounds great, big and clean. I've had the Apogee Duet in the past, this sounds better to me. They did say that they reckon it sounds better than interfaces in the $2k range, I wouldn't know if they've achieved this as that's out of my comfort zone, but you won't be disappointed.

Features.
This doesn't make your bed or walk your dog. There's no built in plugins or guitar sims. You can't record your 32 piece orchestra with it.
it's a straight forward 2 in 2 out high quality interface.

Headphone out.
I use Sennheiser HD600 and they sound great with the 2x2. Again the sound quality is excellent.

In conclusion.
This is pretty much perfect for my needs so I can't really fault it. The only unknown is, how long will it last? I'm assuming it will well and truly outlive its 3 year warranty period based on the build quality and the fact that it's not trying to do a million and one different tasks.

Absolutes High-End Interface!
schneidas, 05.03.2021
Die Karte ist top! Verarbeitung ist 1A, sie steht stabil (nichts wippelt, wie z.B. bei Focusrite), alle Regler wirken hochwertig. Intern sind alle Bauteile auf Audiophile-Niveau.
Der Sound klingt wirklich plastisch und 3-Dimensional (Überprüfung mit Genelecs und Neumann).
Der Treiber und das Control-Panel sind recht rudimentär - erfüllen aber ihren zweck unf alles läuft stabil und mit sehr geringer Latenz. Buffer bis runter auf 8 samples wählbar, ohne Knackser oder Sound-Aussetzer. Der "Direct"-Regler ist ein höchst-willkommenes Feature, verstehe nicht warum dies nicht Standard bei allen Interfaces ist.
AmpSims und Plugins wie Overloud-THU, BIAS, Amplitube 5.0 etc. laufen einwandfrei und ohne spürbare Latenz.
Persönlich hätte ich mir noch zwei weitere analoge Inputs auf der Rückseite gewünscht, dann wäre es das perfekteste Interface der Welt (für Heimstudios und Semi-Pros), aber das ist Jammern auf höchstem Niveau!
USB Kabel liegen zwei bei (1x USB-C auf USB-C und 1x USB-C auf USB-A - beide sind USB 2.0 spezifiziert).
Das Interface läuft problemlos auf USB2.0 oder USB 3.0/3.1/3.2 Anschluss (Win 10 - AMD Ryzen CPU - Asus Board). Strom zieht es über den USB Port, ohne Netzteil - und dies funktioniert einwandfrei!
Für mich das perfekte Interface für audiophile und highend Ansprüche und meine Suche ist hiermit endlich zuende!
Top gemacht Black Lion Audio!!

Prima Recensione
piermarco, 03.03.2021
È arrivata oggi, quindi posso dire ancora poco. Comunque, al momento, direi che:
- E' super compatibile, provata subito su distro Gnu/Linux funziona perfettamente out of the box.
- E' bellissima, con potenziometri perfetti e meter molto dinamici.
- Ho provato il pre con un microfono appena acquistato, quindi ora non so dare un'opinione, domani provo con l'akg p820 tube che uso spesso.
- La conversione DA sembra buona, domani provo una miglior comparazione con la mia motu 828es (che amo molto).
- Altro test che lascio ai prossimi giorni sarà vedere se posso comodamente usarla come pre in s/pdif e come monitor controller per il terzo ascolto (iloud micro) sempre in s/pdif.
- L'uscita cuffie sembra niente male (HD600).
- Nessun rumore di fondo percepito finora.

Tutto ciò è molto provvisorio, ma immagino che qualcuno stia aspettando una recensione della scheda, quindi in questi giorni vi dirò via via la mia opinione in modo sempre più dettagliato.

Le top !
Madelong, 23.03.2021
Fabrication/boîtier
Rien à redire, c'est solide. Les potards sont top (bien durs, sans crans) les E/S solides et bien stables, les boutons, même les câbles fournis, tout est costaud. Côté look pas grand chose à dire, c'est sobre mais loin d'être affreux. Le plus que j'adore : le potard qui balance le son du casque entre les entrées et le playback, super pratique à l'enregistrement ! Le switch Mono/Stéréo vraiment pratique aussi. Pas de bouton M/A par contre, mon seul vrai regret. Seul inconvénient, l'alim 48V s'applique aux deux entrées simultanément. Pour ma part ce n'est pas un problème mais ça peut l'être pour certains.

Configuration / Installation (sur Mac)
Easy. En deux temps trois mouvements j'ai pu récupérer tout le package logiciel. Un mot quand même, le bundle Logiciel est quand même génial ! Rien que la licence des plugins Alliance inclus, c'est 328$ ! Les plugins iZotope sont supers, je les découvre et ne m'en passe plus. Et le fameux Studio One 5 Artist, que je ne connaissais pas, est pas mal du tout. Assez complet et très ergonomique. Parfait si vous voulez expérimenter rapidement des idées et le meilleur en termes d'édition audio avec pas mal d'idées très pratiques. 10 ans que j'utilise Logic et me voilà converti (enfin, j'utilise les deux mais pour en avoir essayé d'autres comme Cubase, Digital Performer ou Ableton, je préfère de loin Studio One à ceux-là. Mais ça reste une question de goût ou d'habitude) Bref, là pour le prix on est vraiment au top.

Bon et alors le son dans tout ça ?
C'est là qu'il est plus dur de se prononcer après seulement quelques semaines d'utilisation, et de surcroît je ne suis qu'un humble musicien home studiste, pas un newbie mais pas un pro du son non plus. Bon, déjà globalement, pas d'arnaque, on est pas sur un son d'une carte à moins de 200 euros (sauf la MOTU M2 peut être ?). Le point de comparaison le plus proche que j'ai c'est la MOTU Ultralite que j'utilise depuis bien longtemps, et on est sensiblement dans le même niveau de qualité mais je trouve la Revolution 2x2 plus chaude, plus flatteuse dans les médiums que la MOTU. Mais bon franchement à prendre avec des pincettes parce que je n'ai fait que quelques prises et pas dans les mêmes conditions qu'avec la MOTU. Pour ces premières prises, les voix, les guitares, ça sonne carrément mieux, ça à plus de caractère. L'accordéon, l'harmonica, c'est pas forcément flagrant. En tout cas, ça ne m'a pas sauté aux oreilles. Je laisse les experts donner tout le détail mais en tout cas pour moi ça sonne mieux ou au moins aussi bien. J'ai mis un couple SE Voodoo VR2/Rode NT5 dessus, un bonheur !

Avantages / Inconvénients
+ Le bundle Logiciel tout simplement génial
+ Le son !
+ La qualité de fabrication
- Pas de bouton M/A (mais je pinaille)
- Peu de connectiques

En Synthèse
Pour qui veut faire du home studio sérieusement c'est idéal. Des cartes son à ce prix j'en ai essayé pas mal, à part la MOTU UltraLite ou M4 plus complète en connectique je ne vois pas mieux. La MOTU M2 est intéressante pour qui ne veut pas mettre 400 euros dans une carte son mais pour le home studiste qui veut un bon DAW, de bon plugins et un son de qualité pour faire ses enregistrements avec un ou deux micros, c'est assurément un must.
