Really good price/quality ratio

bogdanpol, 07.08.2017
To be honest, I am impressed. The DSP processing is wonderful and the sound is clear. I can use so many of these plugins that my Macbook Pro wouldn't handle otherwise. The build quality & the experience surrounding their gear and software is amazing.

The only issue I've had so far is that the plugins you receive at purchase leave you longing for more. Right now I have 2 coupons that are waiting for my decision. I can't seem to figure out if I want a Moog filter, a Roland space echo clone or a tape machine.

If it ever crossed your mind if you should buy this audio interface or not, I can say with full confidence it was the best purchase I made so far in terms of audio equipment. I think you will feel that too.

THE BEST!

Clasclasse, 04.06.2018
What a great piece of kit!

Very rugged desktop interface that looks great!

Simple and flawless integration with OSX and Logic Pro X!

Great easy workflow!

Superb sounding plugins and no audible latency when tracking through the very nifty Console app.

4 DSP's great for unloading your computers CPU while mixing!

Included plugins very good. But you will want more!

Very good headphone out. Loud and clear. Very good A/D D/A conversion.

Conclusion:

No more latency trouble when tracking!

Great sounding plugins!

Clear and detailed conversion!

Great headphone amp!

If you have the cash you can't go wrong with this one! Just go for it!

No regrets what so ever!
