Serious contender but with some flaws
Rhymebeg 16.06.2022
The EVO 8 is a very capable interface. Low latency, 4 mic preamps and the separate cue monitoring for vocalist are game changers in this price range market. Hi quality low noise preamps don't leave you indifferent. Just don't forget to use auto-gain button. But like in any low budget piece of hardware there are some flaws. First of all it is hard to read manual. I ordered it for my friend who is a professional musician ever wanted to hit the big scene. And for him without my technical knowledge it is hard to understand even watching tutorials. The second problem is the low headphone output. Also the real microphone gain is less than 50db, so you need to make gain lower on the master out 1-2(PC) to hear yourself on OUT 3-4 for voiceover recordings in the studio. At the same time the recordings with just metronome without music is ok. Even listening for music from PC could be little bit louder. And if you want to make recordings with low diaphragm microphones from distance(choir for example) you will not get normal gain staging levels(-10db at peak). So in any case you need additional headphone amp to work with EVO and maybe a decent mic preamp if you record in acoustic venues. Low noise preamps give you a possibility to add a gain later in program so additional 10db gain will add noise to the same extent up to -118 which may be low or not depending on the source sound volume. But if you are not gonna record vocals and plan to only make arrangements it is good to go. High dynamic range will make your life eazier.

Stay away!!!

On paper this seemed pretty much perfect- a compact interface with 4 inputs, smart gain, from a seemingly reliable manufacturer and for not that huge of a price!

When it arrived, it worked fine at first. Then a bug hit me where the interface wouldn’t be detected by Windows after hibernating, so I attempted to reinstall the drivers - a HUGE mistake to say the least.

Upon restarting my PC, it entered a boot loop. Using a Windows installer it told me it couldn’t fix it. So I tried reinstalling Windows, but it kept failing. Only when I tried to reinstall without the interface connected, the install succeeded. However, when I tried to use the interface again, the driver installation failed midway through. When I restarted my PC, the previous issue came back.

If you want an audio interface that actually works and won’t destroy your Windows installation, LOOK ELSEWHERE

So easy to use, clean gain, good headphone amp, what else?

This is just fantastic!
Audient blew away the competition, I sold my older and way more expensive interface for this.
I record drums with this everyday!
Ribbon, LDC mic, SM57, Beta 52a, it takes all this mics without a fuss.
I don't see the point in buying more expensive interfaces than this, I compared this to my Clarett... haha. I sold the Clarett.

Cheers to Audient and Thomann you guys rock!

Useless product if you run OS X
mrkxe 05.07.2021
This was a very poor product experience. Firstly the features and package seem good for the price, the packaging and presentation is also very premium. The product itself is all plastic and there is some movement on some panels. I installed the software on my 2019 macbook pro running the lastest OS X big sur. Upon connecting the device I was asked to update firmware as the software require,, unfortunately this wouldn't work and it kept saying it cannot connect to the EVO 8. I contact support, they said try another cable, try another computer, try manual firmware update. They said there is a problem with their software/firmware and Big Sur.

I tried all their suggestions including trying running the firmware update on my friends macbook running catalina. Also failed. Support really weren't much help at all, completely useless product and quite surprised a big company like this have a product out there that they know doesn't work with the current OS from Apple.
