What is your opinion of this product?
Think it’s great! Needed an Apollo Quad. This is just as good if you know how to EQ well.

I love this audio interface.
What is your opinion of this product?
This product is reasonably priced, powerful, and has a very easy learning curve. I'm always in search of products which can deliver professional results out of the box. The 1818 more than delivers.

When it works, it works well.
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought this from a local music store with high hopes. Presonus totes this thing as being the best recording interface that uses USB. I cannot say how well this works on a PC but on a Mac it doesn't work very well. When I first got it, there were issues with distortion and popping sounds on playback and recording, which persons took care of with a future firmware release. Now the unit won't update to the newest firmware. So when this unit does work, it works very well. My advice would be to buy something else.

Good idea, poor execution.
Your general opinion of this product.
My recommendation: Do not buy this product! Perhaps Presonus will release better drivers that actually make this a functional unit, but in the meantime, try something else.
