Perfect for recording drums

14.01.2017
I used this product for recording Drums and sometimes live band performances.
Its design was simple and it suited the use in different locations. It can be placed on a desk but also came with mount ears for putting in a rack unit which was a nice feature that allowed me that option in the future.
The face of the unit where the inputs are tilted up towards the user which made it nice to plug in as the cables weren't flush with the surface beneath.
The gain dials had a nice smoothness to them which I found useful for small adjustments.
The headphone output is in a good location on the device.
I have never had any issue with connecting to my laptop.
The fact that its USB allows me to use on different platforms.
It would be an improvement if the inputs were both xlr and instrument line like other interfaces but there is enough inputs.
The phantom option allows you to just assign phantom to certain groups which is great.
All in all a great piece of equipment for the price

Solid Interface for the price

teateatime, 12.04.2018
I bought this interface because I wanted a lot of analog ins and outs, and it delivers on that front and an amazing price. I have several synths and fx, and I like having my audio interface / PC as the central hub from which to route things; I find it preferable to a patch bay or manually rerouting cables.

Pro's:
-> Lots of ins, lots of outs
-> Construction feels solid
-> Sufficient amplification on the headphone out
-> Sufficient amplification on the main outs
-> Drivers on Win10 work well (64 sample latency on big projects without problems)

Cons:
-> No digital outs, so if you want to expand in that direction you'd need a different solution
-> The inputs are pretty sensitive - recording synthesizers I have the input knobs turned completely down, and get a clear signal with little noise. This isn't a con per-se, but if you, like me, were planning on using the input volume to mix a bit during jams, think again.

Overall I'm very happy with my purchase; the competing interfaces are either more expensive, or lack certain features this one has. If you're in the market for an interface with a lot of IO this is a solid choice.
