"I've dated a number of Audio IO's before I met this beauty!"
I'm thinking about purchasing a second one at the sale price. I went through a bunch of IO's before I found this awesome piece of gear!
Sound
Good headroom, Quiet, No Pops or Squeals, Versatile array of inputs, I've owned a number of audio I/O's (Presonus, MOTU, M-Audio) and this one is my favorite! And I really like their tech support people, too.
Features
It came with a DAW but I already had several that I was using.
Ease of Use
Drivers installed easily. It's very DAW friendly. This IO is a sleeper and I think it's one of the best ones out there. I'm a 48 year old veteran to the music business so I know my gear.
Quality
Very well constructed unlike most of the garbage that it out there now. It's very sturdy!
Value
This IO should cost $1,000.00 but it doesn't.
Manufacturer Support
Easy to talk to and they have a very helpful attitude.
The Wow Factor
All the HID controls and jacks are well placed and easy to use. I love the LED VU Meters!
