    Product Rating What is your opinion of this product? This thing is amazing. I bought it to track beats out of my MPC 2000XL's 8 outputs and maintain timing. Now I can track 8 at once in 24 bit right to the until, and transferring files to the computer from the sd card is as easy as it should be. This solved all my problems and is fun to use. My only complaint is this until, like all the other multitracks these days, have no midi. I can be creative and track a beat out in one pass, but with midi it really adds a lot of function as far as adding things later, and more flexible all around. But, I knew that before I purchased, just wish they still utilized it. Thing can run on batteries too, pretty cool. I can't comment on it as an interface yet, but I do plan on trying it. But right now, I'd rather just just record right to the unit anyways. Awesome product.

    What is your opinion of this product? I purchased the unit strictly as a daw controller to expand my inputs. It's important to note that the units can NOT daisy-chain, like certain other controllers, but can work together with the help of a free asio program available on the web. The system is slightly quirky as far as startup, and one should only use the first unit as a controller, as they tend to argue over which channels to control. Together though, they did add eight inputs to the system, and have been working all sixteen seamlessly on an album project.

    What is your opinion of this product? Looking for a solid mixer, I landed upon this bit of kit here, and it delivers quite the length more. * 8 inputs, 1/4" cords or all XLR inputs, plug it in. I wanted something for that "live" momentum, so I've not really dealt with the DAW side of it, but it records the tracks splendidly. Which can then be transferred off the SD-Card digitally. Any "cons" would be that it takes a lot of amps to Volume this, at the start, I felt like I was MaXing all volumes; I've since gone away from computer speakers (headphone out) to real monitors (1/4" output)...and that made the difference. This is a mixer... all the extra stuff, recording+DAW is a splendid plus. I've got guitar, synth, mic, drum machine, Nintendo DS Etc, running into this mixer and I always press record before jamming about...with no doubt; this is what I needed.
