Bought this interface from L & M about 3 years ago... I have used it with a laptop on the go and on my desktop. All I can say is that this is the best of the best for the price out there. Unbelievably portable, compact, versatile and durable. This is the best for the money out there. I most likely get a second one for my stationary desktop. Worth every penny!

Just a word of warning: This was my first experience with an audio interface. I borrowed this from a friend of mine for an evening, and I only had about an hour or so to play with it, but in that hour I was able to install all the SW and drivers without issue (Windows 7), get the device working in Reaper, and record a demo with about 8 tracks, including one vocal. This thing just worked fantastic with: - no driver issues - no latency issues - no noise I would recommend this product!
