Pro Quality Recordings, with a Semi Pro price featured

Comments I love this interface, aside from it's cool motorized faders(hahaha) It's pretty reliable once you set it up properly with your DAW. The Controls are easy to get used to.

It has almost everything you need for recording your tracks, and it produces good quality audio. The only downside is that the pre-amps are prone to peaks so you just have to be carefull about your levels. But when it comes to recording drums it's almost impossible to take a track without clipping, the only solution for that is to buy an "attenuator-type" thingy (not sure what it's called) so that you could cut the volume before of your drums before going into the projectmix' pres


Liked about it Sleek Design
Compatibility to almost every DAW available
Easy to get used to


Didn't like Pre-Amp's sensitivity to clips


Overall satisfaction:
