Really good product, class of its own!

Studio Ex, 20.03.2017
ULN 8 is a workhorse in a studio with a mac OSX 10.8.5. Well build drivers makes ULN8 almost invisible in terms of issues and I can count on it for a long hard work. Sturdy and solid. A great benefits I've got from preamp and different emulations. Generally, the sound is great with a huge tight bottom end and crispy clear mid and high frequencies with a great dynamic and space between the instruments. Stereo doesn't spread so wide like digidesign interfaces for example /as a former avid user/, but it's nothing you can't go thru.
Also, headphone output tend to sound more clinical /or maybe more true to the source/ and let my headphones sounds not so pleasing and also a bit more narrow.

The internal mixer works like a charm. It's a fully customized with a great onboard FX and options. As a Con, I would pointed out that the onboard compressor and limiter tend to work a bit strange in comparison with all other DAW based compressors. It always takes a more time for settings and a tiny little knobs doesn't make your work easier, but at last, the sound is pristine.
Onboard record panel is another one big plus. There is significant difference when I let the final mix to be bounced by DAW or to be printed in real time via MH record panel. That last one, keeps the distance and space and let the final mix to be more natural,3D , crisp and not so squashed. A big minus is lacking of the possibilities for even a simple editing like trim and fade in/out , also it is possible to record only separated mono tracks, so you need a third party software to let them out like a stereo pair, which I think could degrade the sound a bit.

Nuno Miguel, 09.01.2014
Class A Preamps, digital converters, Love everything about it!
metric halo is very well known for great and fast customer service an for great digital convertes
ad/da convertion is very good as well. i notice a big difference when i use it just as a playback with my computer or daw, the quality of the sound improved.
the preamps are extremely clean and not noisy at all, even when you push them hard.
the software that comes with it had some problems but i wrote metric halo and in the day after they replied and resolved the problem
all and all i am very pleased with it
