4.5 out of 5 (40 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Echo 3G Gina"
Sound: Great ananlog to digital/digital to audio converters. Sound has lots of headroom to work with and is crisp and clear. Still working with it and experimenting with microphone positions but hasn't failed to do its job. Preamps also work like a charm and have no humming like other interfaces face. Feature: The accessories were the basic assembly of the equipment and it came with Traction 1. Only gripe is that it didnt come with more programs / plugins. Also Traction 1 you have to e-mail the company in order to get the activation code. Ease of Use: Took me all 20 minutes to hook up. Unplug computer put card, put drivers, reconnect blah blah easy peezy lemon squeezy. Quality: Very nice metal case for the breakout box. Cable to computer is very strong not very flismy and the LEDs and everything works properly. Only thing wrong is Im scared when I get rough with it because the knobs look like they will pop off. Value: Very good price for its money. Manufacturer Support: Great Product = Good Support havent had to contact them yet. The Wow Factor: Its metal and silver, cold as ice. Overall: Very good interface, a bunch of I/O's. Could've used more things, samples and maybe something else in it.
Style of Music: Rap / Hip Hop

Sound: Sounds are great. Low latency, suites my needs. Feature: PCI card and Break out box. The Phantom power is awesome. At the time of purchase I wasn't looking for much, just a better sound card with low latency, quality sound and a break out box. For the price, this was the best deal imo. Now that I'm getting more into engineering. I need more line inputs. Ease of Use: install pci card, install drivers, hook up monitors...BAM!!! Quality: Love the low latency. Good amount of outs. The break out box is sturdy. Quality product. Just wish there was an off button for the break out box to keep it from using power when my computer is on. Value: Best value for it's price. Manufacturer Support: Had to call them a couple times for some simple questions. The answered the phone right away. Good customer service, very knowledgable. The Wow Factor: Small, sleek...very sexy yet powerful. Overall: I did a lot of research before buying, this was the best bang for my buck. It does what I want it to do...yeah
Style of Music: Hip-hop, R&B

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
