Product Description

Two additional balanced 1/4 in. TRS line inputs with selectable +4dBu/-10dBV operation levels also route to the A/D converter. OmniStudio USB is designed for both mobile and desktop operation and includes detachable rack-mount ears.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (22 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Great value I/O soundcard."
Sound: Solid quality sound. Feature: It would be nice to have higher than 2 inputs when set to 192/24bit. Ease of Use: I little confusing at first, and a poorly written manual doesn't help. But, it doesn't take too long to figure it out. Quality: Case is made of thick medal, so a plus there. But TRS internals are plastic connected to the circuit board making them delicate. Value: Purchased for $200 so I think its a great deal for the money. Manufacturer Support: I haven't used their support, but thats a good thing that I've never needed it. Overall: Works great, and I would recommend it to others small studio users.
Style of Music: Electronic

"At $190 its great - Firewire is better than USB 1.1, but for simple setups, you cannot beat this price."
Sound: Excellent Sound Quality. The sound image on this device is slightly better than on my Delta 44 and 66. It must have newer parts than the PCI cards. Feature: This is almost an Omni I/O mixer and Quattro 4x4 USB interface in one 7/8 rack space. All your mixing is done on the front panel so routing is not as flexible as the Delta PCI software mixer. You do get 14 inputs and 10 outputs. Software sees 4 inputs and four outptus. 1x1 Midi I/O. It could be your all-in-one interface. Quality: It's build quality is like a lot of computer stuff these days, it's metal but not exactly a tank. The knobs aren't as tough as the knobs on the DUO or Omni I/O. Thin cheap plastic knobs on this device. It seems reliable though. Value: At $190, you really can't beat it. Manufacturer Support: Customer Support isn't that great. They sometimes don't answer questions. Sometimes they'll ask questions you've already answered in the preliminary questionare. The Wow Factor: I wish it were smaller. It is marketed as a mobile device after all. Overall: USB 1.1 is getting pushed aside due to speedy Firewire. But at $190 it's still fantastic.
