Great Value Purchase
someeeeeeeguy, 16.02.2018
Works great for recording professional vocals at a cheap price. So far I'm about 4 months in with this & I had no issues with it. I've tried a Universal Audio interface earlier this month & even though there was a noticable difference, it wasn't a $800+ difference (at least to me). I'm sure I will upgrade to a more higher quality range interface (perhaps RME) later on but as of right now, this just gets the job done!


Pros:
- Does what it's supposed to do
- Good quality for its price range

Cons:
- None!


If you can't get a good & professional take with this interface, it's probably because of bad performance, bad room sound or maybe, you just simply suck at mixing.

Everything perfect
Nebi, 24.04.2020
Got this shipped to me even before the estimated date, everything in perfect conditions and working flawlessly.
Sturdy little interface, super simple setup and everything connected just fine (Win10 OS), have mic (AT2020), External Hi-Fi Amplifier/Speakers (Technics SA-AX6, JBL speakers) and headphones (Shure SRH440) all plugged in.
Audio In/Out levels super comfy to adjust, very happy with everything really.

Excellent audio interface for beginners.
fadelat, 18.02.2020
Simple to use, functional, delivers clear recording and comes with a good DAW (Cubase AI). Very solid D-PRE Class-A mic preamp, with a detailed sound quality. Perfect for solo acoustic guitar and vocals, podcasting and voiceovers.

best device ever
Sebastian365, 03.05.2021
The interface connected to windows in an instant and was ready to work right away. Amazing. The only downside is that my dt-770 pro 250 Ohm don't get enough output from the headphones out, so I have to root the signal through a mixer and connect the headphones to the mixer.
