Top Interface
Mo Bass, 29.04.2019
I use the interface at home to record basses and guitars for various customers in high quality. If required, I go to my studio after that and reampe the track again using the "Reamping Outputs 5" Ingenious concept and exactly what I had been waiting for. Had to realize this by means of reversed DI box - which soundwise did not work perfectly.
The heart of this interface is the Input Section:
Z-Tone for variable impedance.
Especially for guitar / bass pickups designed inputs that can cope with both high and low levels.
JFET circuit for harmonic distortion and adaptation to active or passive pickups.
I never want to spend too much time with input customization and have always been able to get a high-quality signal together with guitar as well as bass.
The mic inputs work officially.
The handling is simple and intuitive. I can show my "direct" signal for playback. Both via headphones, as well as over the interception.
The tuner is nice, but not necessarily very meaningful.
The processing of the device is great - can not detect any defects.
I installed the software, plugged in the device and off we went.
So no driver problems or the like - with the Mac :-)
Conclusion:
You get - in this price segment - high-quality desktop recording interface with special features for guitar and bass recording.
