Summary: Great product, the hardware and provided software are great. I had previously used the Presonus FireWire and really like the improvemnets that have been made over the last few years and the overall performance of the USB model. The software is simple to use once you go through the quick start guide.
Summary: I got this box to provide an interface for a Notebook PC loaded with the Studio One Pro DAW I plan to use as a mobile recording rig. It works fine, looks and feels well made, and provides stereo 1/4"/XLR inputs on the front with phantom power. It's perfect for my intended use: tracking acoustic guitar and vocals on their time and in their space, without having to bring someone to my studio. The preamps are plenty hot, the audio quality is very good.
Summary: i got the 1818 vsl usb 2.0 - NOTTHE ONE PICTURED HERE - EBAY WON'T LET ME GO TO THE ONE I GOT - I love it - perfect - presonus is the working man's dream come true - value for money unbeatable.
Great value for a well made fit for purpose product.
