Overall: 10 out of 10 stars
This is a great product sounds much better that most avid interfaces i have to use at studios when im hired. Preamps are clear and clean, i currently use this with reaper and it sounds real good. I think win 10 itself has issues so i cnt blame the driver for that. when not using the interface win 10 will freeze, but ur22 is a good want to see a HD quality this size
