This little mixer has a ton of possibilities and does have an recognize ASIO driver available on the website. However I’m not sure if this is an isolated issue or possibly a problem across the line. But when recording a stereo 2 track signal through input 1 and 2, I’m experiencing a opposite phase issue on one of the channels. It becomes very obvious when you send a mono signal into both CH 1 and 2. It is very evident when you examine the wave form in a recording software. I also experience a mulling effect as you start to bring the channels pan back to center. Not sure if others are seeing this. But I would love to get this one replaced and to make sure this is an isolated issue. Thanks

Glorified external soundcard. Very basic. If you need ASIO, run away!1 of 1 customers found this review helpful

The concept is certainly there. With everything from loopback, to monitor mute, aux in and support for 1/8" peripherals. It's a full featured mixer in a small package. Two combo xlr jacks is a plus. UNUSABLE as a USB interface in my opinion. Uses basic windows sound drivers. No ASIO support which means terrible latency when using with VSTs. For use with VERY basic software like Audacity. Otherwise, you're stuck using the dinosaur of a program ASIO4ALL just to work around it. Get ready for sound hardware conflicts. Better off with the YAMAHA AG03 which does everything here, plus more. ASIO support with on board DSP. Can be used with tablet software as well.

Great mixer, never had any trouble other then a buzz when the gain is turned all the way up but the pad option fixes that. Great mixer for the price I must say!

We use these for remote collaboration among band members to create compiled performances in a video. My bandmates use these to record their parts in an iPad or iPhone video, and send it to me where I can take each channel into my DAW as a separate track and mix like we had been together in the studio. It works with this device because it sends CH1 and 2 DRY signals out the USB. Thus a band member can plug the mic into Input 1, the guitar into Input 2, the backing track into the Aux, the USB into the iPad Camera USB adapter dongle - and what I get back is a video with good quality audio where L channel is only the voice and R channel is only the guitar, both in sync with the common backing track that we all use. I strip out the L and R channels from all the videos, mix the song, and make a six-panel video with sound coming from the combined result. CAUTION: The only problem is that there is a fault in the firmware currently (June 2020) in that the supposedly "dry" signal is tapped after the EQ and pan, meaning that you have to pan Inputs 1 and 2 full L and R, and set EQ knobs at 0 to keep the tracks truly dry. Makes it useless for recording dry when actually performing in front of an audience. Otherwise, I would have rated the features and quality 5.
