Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreEdmonton South, Alberta
I purchased this to use with cubase pro 10, just to get started so i could have asio drivers and something to plug headphones into... But it turns out it's very good at everything. The Mic preamps are great. The direct input for recording bass or guitar are great. The direct monitoring is great. A delightful surprise. I was going to own it temporarily until i could afford an RME interface... But there is no need to change anything. It's fine!
