This little mixer has a ton of possibilities and does have an recognize ASIO driver available on the website. However I’m not sure if this is an isolated issue or possibly a problem across the line. But when recording a stereo 2 track signal through input 1 and 2, I’m experiencing a opposite phase issue on one of the channels. It becomes very obvious when you send a mono signal into both CH 1 and 2. It is very evident when you examine the wave form in a recording software. I also experience a mulling effect as you start to bring the channels pan back to center. Not sure if others are seeing this. But I would love to get this one replaced and to make sure this is an isolated issue. Thanks

Glorified external soundcard. Very basic. If you need ASIO, run away!3 of 3 customers found this review helpful

The concept is certainly there. With everything from loopback, to monitor mute, aux in and support for 1/8" peripherals. It's a full featured mixer in a small package. Two combo xlr jacks is a plus. UNUSABLE as a USB interface in my opinion. Uses basic windows sound drivers. No ASIO support which means terrible latency when using with VSTs. For use with VERY basic software like Audacity. Otherwise, you're stuck using the dinosaur of a program ASIO4ALL just to work around it. Get ready for sound hardware conflicts. Better off with the YAMAHA AG03 which does everything here, plus more. ASIO support with on board DSP. Can be used with tablet software as well.

Great mixer, never had any trouble other then a buzz when the gain is turned all the way up but the pad option fixes that. Great mixer for the price I must say!

We use these for remote collaboration among band members to create compiled performances in a video. My bandmates use these to record their parts in an iPad or iPhone video, and send it to me where I can take each channel into my DAW as a separate track and mix like we had been together in the studio. It works with this device because it sends CH1 and 2 DRY signals out the USB. Thus a band member can plug the mic into Input 1, the guitar into Input 2, the backing track into the Aux, the USB into the iPad Camera USB adapter dongle - and what I get back is a video with good quality audio where L channel is only the voice and R channel is only the guitar, both in sync with the common backing track that we all use. I strip out the L and R channels from all the videos, mix the song, and make a six-panel video with sound coming from the combined result. CAUTION: The only problem is that there is a fault in the firmware currently (June 2020) in that the supposedly "dry" signal is tapped after the EQ and pan, meaning that you have to pan Inputs 1 and 2 full L and R, and set EQ knobs at 0 to keep the tracks truly dry. Makes it useless for recording dry when actually performing in front of an audience. Otherwise, I would have rated the features and quality 5.

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

-----

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
