Product Description

The Echo Audio AudioFire 12 offers the same high quality hardware and software found in their popular Layla3G product, but with the addition of a FireWire interface. With the AudioFire 12 you can record 24 bit 96kHz audio with low latency monitoring on any Windows XP or Mac OS X computer (desktop or notebook) with a FireWire port.

Ease of Use
Echo Audio at it again
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
12 real world channels that can be used with mics, if you are doing live music this is the way to go. Good PC integration.
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?
Relatively easy to use if you know anything at all about PC's. Good driver support. This thing works well but you need to have some PC knowledge, remember just because you went to school and got a degree for something does not make you good at it!
Was this item an overall good value?
Yes, great value. I have had this for three years, through many projects and have never been let down.
