Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
2 FireWIre ports is a plus. I chose a FireWire interface because my Macbook has only 2 USB ports and did not want to occupy both immediately. I'm glad I did. Sounds great! NOTE. The headphone output is fairly weak, it works.....it just doesn't provide high volume.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Auto drivers for Mac, recognized immediately. Can't get any easier. NOTE. Pick up a FierWire cable (6 pin to 9 pin) for 5 bucks. Works great and you'll never use the A/C power supply, I haven't.
Value
Was this item an overall good value?
If you do not need pre-amps on your interface, this is beyond great. Sound great! I've gigged with it for almost 2 years. It also doubles as my home-studio interface. So it gets worked!
