Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This audio interface was bought for use in my home studio, primarily for acoustic drums. It features multiple input & output options, which makes it really useful to connect with other devices.The audio quality is pristine, 100% high end, and the FPGA FX are surprisingly affordable.I use it with a 2013 mac pro (trash can) and the drivers are fully stable. Connected with a thunderbolt 3 adapter thunderbolt 2, it gives 32 audio channels to/from the computer.Another key to me is the Control Panel software, and it is important to note that this is crucial to realizing the potential provide by the impressive hardware features.It seems that there will be even more FPGA FX from third parties in the future, I hope Antelope will pursue this avenue which is the wave of the future, so I'm looking forward to it.In conclusion, I really enjoy and totally recommend this audio interface!
