M-Audio Firewire 1814 Customer Review
Sound: The quality is great, but I use an octopre through adat on this machine. It passes the sound through great. :) Feature: It's got some great features, including two separate headphone mixes, several inputs and outputs, drivers for most systems, etc. Ease of Use: I had been using a G4 with a digi001 and needed something for my laptop so I could do some live recordings if I needed to. It took me about a month to finally understand how this thing worked. I had my adat setting wrong and I was getting all kinds of clicks and pops. It's fine now though. I should have just listened to the troubleshooting. Quality: I got this used, but it was still in good quality. It's a metal box with cheaper knobs. I don't plan on throwing this thing around, and most of the time it's sitting on my desk. Value: I had been looking at getting a digi002, but I just couldn't afford it. I picked this up for half the price of a new one. It's given me everything I need for recording. Manufacturer Support: They've got a great FAQ and other troubleshooting help on their website. Sometimes setting everything up can be difficult and they seem to know how to fix it all. The Wow Factor: I NEED it for my job. Overall: It's a good machine. It uses pro tools, which is what I know. I'm not willing to use any other software. For the price and for the features, this thing is the best.
Style of Music: acoustic, rock, punk, etc.

"Its worth it as long as you read the instructions!"
Sound: The sound quality is so good, from the unbalanced inputs and the outputs and the s/pdif. You can't go wrong with it, before I bought the unit I did alot of research on it and It seems to me like the people having serious problems either a) don't have systems that can handle the machine, b) Did not read the instructions, or clearly are making mistakes with their daw of choice etc. If you have a basic knowledge of how to eq or mix you will be set!!!! Feature: The product came with a firewire and usb 2.0 cord, but they're very short. I would say if your not going to use this with a laptop that you should go out and buy some longer cables. It also came with a demo of Pro tools m powered and a version of Ableton called "lite". I didn't really have a use for them because I already use Adobe Audition and sometimes PT mpowered. The most useful feature to me is that unit is powered from your computer if your using a 6 pin to 6 pin firewire cable (if you use 4 pin to 6 pin firewire then you have to use the adapter that comes with it). I own both a PC and G4 Powerbook and i've gotten pretty good results using both. I just think sometimes the mixer setup can be a little disjointing but other than that its all good. Ease of Use: Very easy to use, what you put in you get back. THE MANUAL is very clear to read and it makes thing very obvious. The one thing it emphasizes the most is hotplugging. IF you hotplug the unit you have a chance of either destroying the unit (making it inoperable) or making your firewire port inoperable. Quality: The knobs do feel a little cheap but it is a nice model, very utilitarian in its design. the only thing I wish is that all the inputs were balanced instead of unbalanced but its okay. Value: Yes I think its very much worth it, especially if your just getting into learning how to record. M-audio has a good selection of models. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had to use support yet! but from what I understand they're pretty good The Wow Factor: Well like I said it has a very utilitarian look to it, people ask me wtf is that? It was a very practical addition to my setup plus I can take it with me places (although I don't). Overall: I will be using this for awhile, truthfully I would like to upgrade to an RME interface in the future, or maybe even the new Digi003 (or even that tascam control surface interface) but I'm good for right now.
