"Would love it more if it didn't hum in my artist ears!"

Not completly satisfied.
This would be a all around great product if it didn't do an obscene amount of buzzing while I'm recording music. It doesn't translate to the mix, but it's distracting in the headphones of the artist or in the monitor room.
Features are great, the effects are decent and the phantom power is very useful when using a condensor mic.
Ease of Use
Plug and play, no hassle (just make sure you know your input locations on your DAW software).
It's very sturdy, even though mines stays put in the pre studio, it would probably travel well.
Good if I didn't have this humming noise.
Manufacturer Support
Very shaky, when I inquired about the humming noise, I have still yet to get a answer on the fix yet.
The Wow Factor
Very nice appeal for a small home studio, great effects if your DAW is lacking or you want something in the initial recording chain first.
