Fantastic interface with tons of features
Francisco Marques, 23.10.2019
I was using my Line 6 helix to track my instruments (few synths, guitar, bass, electronic drum set, vocals) to my daw. Some time ago I started craving for something that would provide me with more I/O, that would improve my latency issues and help me to alleviate the burden put on my mac with all the plugins, especially in large sessions. This interface pretty much solved all my issues, while adding a little extra something to my mixes: the UAD plugins really are something to behold, and being able to track with them in realtime is a blessing. The console software has a nice interface and it is really easy to use.
If I had to point out 1 con, it could only be the form factor, as I favor desktop interfaces, but even that didn't really made much of a difference to me.
All in all, a serious upgrade for anyone trying to hook up more than a few pieces of gear and looking for a major upgrade in their recordings and mixes. Highly recommend it

gorgeous lush open sound plus infinite possibilities for processing
16.01.2016
Top quality sound card .
Highly addictive on line plugin store with exceptionally weird pricing policy. Prices change at random giving one the thrill (and disappointment ) of an on line audio casino.
Top quality virtual plugins .
Excellent headphone outputs.
Immediate integration withLogic Pro X .
Easy to use and configure.
A system that cannot be beaten!
Save and buy!
