Awesome USB interface

I got this to upgrade to a PC based set up after years of using a dedicated Roland VS2400CD, so while I have no way to compare it to any other recent USB interfaces I can say that it does a fine job for my requirements. Individual phantom power was a biggie for me. I really don't understand why batch phantom power is even a thing!

Setting it up to use in Cubase 8 was a breeze if you know what you are doing, I have had no need to fiddle with any latency settings and get no noticeable lag or delay in any sense. Only used at 44.1khz so far. The Autosense feature is very, very, very handy although going through each channel and setting the levels individually is not too much effort either. Hi pass, phase and compression on all channels is nice though i mostly only use the hi pass. Nice reverb for monitoring: the reverb is not recorded through to the daw. Some of it can be a bit fiddly to set up, the reverb, the input and output mixers A-D, keep the manual handy! All great features nonetheless, and the software it comes with makes it much easier to navigate the interface including said features.

I rated the Octacapture slightly down on sound quality, while it is fantastic for the price I can only imagine there are better albeit more expensive products out there. But at this price point it is fantastic.

I also rated it slightly down on characteristics, as the lack of an Adat connection didnt bother me when i purchased it but am now unable to expand without getting another octacapture and stacking them. Even though I've used Roland products for over 10 years, I also like variety so for tonal varierty I'd prefer to get a dual input pre amp with a digital out for the spdif input and make use of the full 10 inputs this awesome unit offers. On the plus side it does have a MIDI in/out which was also something I was unable to find on too many competing interfaces. While this doesnt really make up for the expansion limitations, points to Roland.

In a nutshell: It sounds good, is easily portable, individual phantom power, auto sense, upto 10 inputs once you add the 2 digital ins, great autosense feature, no latecy on my set up (Win 8.1 64 bit, i7 2.8Ghz, 16GB RAM, Samsung EVO SSD). The knob controls can take a bit of getting used to and other than expansion limitations I can think of no real issues I have had with this wonderful unit! It would have been really really awesome if it had a monitor A/B function too. Something surprisingly basic and easy to integrate yet very rarely seen on interfaces.

Well designed

Michael2889, 02.12.2014
A nice little unit that is child's play to operate. Plenty of controls on the front panel provide instant access to all parameters - no scrolling through deep menus. A good transparent and clean sound with my Neumann mics. and I look forward to using it on mobile classical sessions.
The only drawback is the awful software bundled with it. Sonar is, to say the least, a "dog". I wanted a very simple multi-track DAW for mobile, simple multi-track recordings. I would then transfer the audio files to my MacPro in my studio for mixing, editing and mastering. Sonar seems to be quirky and unreliable so I need to get Logic Pro X onto my MacBook.
As a versatile, low cost and high quality unit I can recommend this.
