Good interface
Sashiimi 03.05.2018
This is a good interface, however, mine came with the 48v channel sending out 80v for some reason and I couldn't plug two 48v dependant devices without it starting to make noise.

You should have a powered usb hub for this interface just to be sure it receives all the juice it needs to function properly.

The audio quality is good, preamps are fairly quiet and it is really really well build.

if it wasn't for the fact that it came broken in the first place, I'd easily give it 4+ stars, however, seeing it as a recurrent problem online, I'm afraid I cannot.

The drivers sometimes bug and I'm left with no sound and have turn the interface on and off.

If you're planing to use this with a guitar, you should have a DI Box because with RG421's quantum pickups, on the lowest gain possible, it still clips slightly.

Overall, it's a worth considering interface, with great build and sound quality. However, i'd recommend you checking out a newer presonus one or a Focusrite interface if the price difference doesnt bother you. Look for one with a pad button if you plan to use a guitar.

Works perfectly with Linux
eb303 06.11.2022
Bought this for a Linux laptop with which I wanted to record music. It worked perfectly out of the box: no installation of anything required, it was recognized at once, configuration was easy, and I didn't need anything special to start recording (I'm using Ardour with Jack). If you're looking for something simple and hassle-free for Linux, go for it!

Bought again
Yew Tree Pro 23.02.2021
I have owned one of these for 2-3 years and it's been great, so buying another for my son. Well made case, inputs that work for XLR or TRS jack are great, phantom power useful for condenser mics, and being able to mix input/playback is very useful when recording. Using with Logic Pro for recording various instruments, never had an issue. The headphone socket is on the rear, which might be a problem for some. Spearate output control for phones and monitors is useful.

Sporadic digital noise issue
Flynderuni 23.04.2021
Faulty pots. Sporadic noise regardless of gain level high or low, audible during audio playback after recording ditigal or analogue instruments.

I sent the item back to get a Focusrite instead for better chance of getting a device that doesn't emit the same effect. Otherwise it worked fine, shame I had the 1 in 100 that had this default.
