Excellent DAW interface, good looks, great value.

Cotton Head, 15.07.2014
Reason for purchase: To replace a traditional mixer in a live FOH setup.

My aim is to use a DAW as a front of house mixer and use the Behringer FCA1616 as the main interface between computer and sound system.

I had read a number of reviews on the FCA1616 some good, some not so positive. As I am a fan of Behringer, due to its good quality and competitive price. I decided to use the FCA1616 because the inputs can be routed to the DAW or direct to the amplifier by a single control, which is a huge bonus and a failsafe in case of computer malfunction. Another bonus is that the 4 phantom powered microphone inputs can be expanded with an extra 8 microphone inputs using the Behringer ADA 8200 Ultragain giving a total of 12 (that setup being a future project).

At present I am experimenting with the standard inputs/outputs and have found the FCA1616 very easy to connect both with USB and Firewire. All seems very stable and sound quality is excellent.

As this is an ongoing project I will endeavour to update the review as I put it to practical use.

Behringer seems to have once again produced an excellent product at a very respectable price. Not only does it work well it also looks good. Who was it that said "If your equipment looks good your audience will think that it sounds good" with the FCA1616 it looks good and sounds good too.

Bottom line: Highly recommended, excellent value, easy to use, looks good and sounds good.

I am on a budget but wanted a soundcard that could handle multiple inputs for work with my band. My secondary use would be as a member of staff in a school recording coursework performances for a music course. The course itself has no required music technology element but coming from a music technology background I knew the importance of good quality recording as opposed to dragging it from someone's mobile phone.

I use the FCA1616 in conjunction with a laptop running Windows 8.1, a Millennium PB48 patchbay for ease of access to most of the rear panel and a variety of line and microphone inputs. The software of choice is Reason 8.1 also (numerical coincidence, no more). Installing drivers was flawless and straightforward, merely a case of locating the right ones online and going for it. Reason the recognised the interface immediately and took to it with full functionality, allowing me to route inputs and outputs at will. The four XLR inputs are great, with dedicated pre-amps and individual Phantom powering as well as pads. The four line inputs do not have their own pre-amps, but as keyboards often run at line level and many bass and guitar amps have line outs on them nowadays this isn't a big issue to me. The inserts section remains unused by me, so I cannot comment but trust they will work as advertised. Having two headphone outputs is especially useful to me as I can the hear what the performer is hearing when doing overdubs. The unit has got most of its use as a mid level recording interface. It is capable of good work and whilst an additional unit is required to get full 16 in/out functionality, I believe this to be an excellent mid range choice that most bands or entry to mid level producers can get good results from. I am extremely happy with it and when time comes to move forward or upgrade I will be looking to Behringer again.
