Good audio-interface, decent for home guitar recording.

Alexey N., 17.09.2013
I bought this interface for playing/recording electric guitar. I did a lot of research on audio interfaces and this one seems to be decent for it's price category. Mind that I want to focus my review on guitar-related features!

Advantages:

+Great overall: solid design; usb-powered; support up to 24-bit/192 kHz; good sound; easy to use; mobile; includes good software.

+Nice auto-sens feature (I don't use it, though)

+Stable drivers, which allow you to use one program through ASIO without muting other non-ASIO sounds. So playing backing tracks in your media player or watching online videos is not a problem when your DAW is loaded.

+Low latency with no audio glitches. I use 24-bit/96 kHz mode, 192 samples. Full latency is 9.64 ms.

+Great pre-amps, with maximum instrument input level of +18dBu. This parameter is not listed in specs, but it's critical for high-output passive guitar pickups if guitar is connected to interface directly. With +18dBu you can avoid clipping with any pickups.

Disadvantages:

-Output knob regulates both speakers and headphones.

-Hi-Z impedance is only 680 kOhm, while standard is 1 mOhm. This parameter is also not listed in specs, and lower than standard impedance supposes it should cut high frequencies a bit. However, when comparing sound recorded with interface vs. instrumental preamp+interface, I can't really hear the difference.

-Signal/Noise Ratio is not studio quality: my measurements show -103 dB (A-weighted). So, when guitar is just plugged in and your input plugins are set to high-gain, you'll hear some amount of noise, but it's still good enough for home recording, since no noise cuts through while playing.

Conclusion:
This interface serves me as decent home mini-studio, keeps it simple, and I have zero problems with it. Really happy with my choice. Edit: some more interesting interfaces [for guitar recording] are present on the market now, which didn't exist when I bought this interface. But I'm still happy with this one.

Great little box

Calvinios, 26.05.2017
I love this thing. For the money you just can't beat it. The features are excellent and whilst there is colouration on the signal there is a sense of warm tone that is pleasurably pleasing for such a cheap unit.
