Rate and Review This Product
"Driver Nightmare - Avoid at all costs."
Sound: Sound wise, the unit seems fine. Good for basic use. Feature: It's okay. Not bad, not spectacular. Ease of Use: This gets a 2 because of my main issue with this piece of junk. The drivers are absolutely horrible. They don't install 90% of the time. I've tried installing this thing in four different PCs, and in all four of them I had isues with the unit just eventually "winking" out of existence. The driver suddenly gets corrupt and the unit won't work. Trying to reinstall the driver will only guarantee you membership in the nearest psychiatric ward. The drivers for this thing are total crap. It's not that I don't know how to install drivers for a USB device, I do IT for a living. Eventually, by what appears to be pure luck or chance, the drivers will "take"; but for the most part, you are stuck with errors like "The hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary software" even though I'm pointing it directly at the software directory with the proper .inf file. Usually I have to manually clean the system, weeding through not only the registry, but also C:\Windows\System32, C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\, and C:\Windows\inf\ directories to kill off the old RC files. There is absolutely no excuse for the nightmare driver install of this unit. Stay far, far, away from this thing if you value your time and sanity. Quality: Plastic. Not super cheap, but not extremely solid either. It probably won't stand much abuse, but sturdy enough to survive normal day to day use. Value: Not worth it for the driver instability issues. At any given moment, it could just wink out of existence on your PC. Hardly worth $150 for something that's completely unreliable in that sense. Manufacturer Support: Non-existent, basically. WHEN you have driver issues, (and you will !) you can be content in the knowledge that you're essentially on your own. They'll only ask you if you read the instructions and/or email them to you - even after you've already explained that you've followed all those steps and they don't work. Nice to know they don't listen. The Wow Factor: Pass this nightmare / headache by - there are far better units out there. Overall: I want to smash this piece of crap with a sledge hammer and then take that sledge hammer to the developers at Edirol who write the drivers. I've never, ever, had a USB device this unstable before. It boggles the mind.

"nice entry level box, but a little noisy"
Sound: There's nothing wrong with the sound itself.. clear and accurate, but the noise floor is far too high. I hear interference of all kinds coming from it if i turn my amp up, interference which goes away when i mute the edirol's channel on my mixer. I find the same problem from the inputs, my VUs indicate about -50db background noise, far higher than the advertised -90something. Feature: the feature set is great, especially for the price. the headphone jack is underpowered, but that's to be expected. discounting that, the 2x2 audio with midi in such a small and cheap box is excellent Quality: feels durable, but there's something about plastic gear that makes me a little cautious.. Value: the features are well worth the money.. but the residual noise makes it an usuable piece of equipment in certain situations. Manufacturer Support: havn't had to contact them Overall: i liked it very much when i first got it, but, the more i notice the noise, the more i'm inclined to look for a replacement
