The oriole32 HD is probably the only audio interface you'll ever need. you will never have any issues with latency, simply a true beauty for tracking. Take advantage of the incredible plugins provided by antelope audio, some of them are even better the hardware and can outcompete them. The software control is very intuitive with full flexibility for every channel. The pre amps are clean and bright, thick and punchy. This is a WINNER.
