Summary: Decided to buy due to it being amongst the cheapest audio interfaces available for music recording on the market. Never again will I waste my time trying to save every nickel and dime. The cheap-end is great, and the features are nice (NO PHANTOM POWER ON THIS = NO CONDENSER MICS). I especially like the monitor mix function.
Summary: I needed a sound input / output device for my notebook, which is not that expensive and suitable for home recording. Not for professional recording - just to make a recording of my 6 years old daughter learning to play a piano. So... I was looking on Internet to find some inexpensive (but not the cheapest) USB PC Interface, and I found this device here on Amazon.
Not Compatible With Windows 7, or ANY Windows 64-bit OS.

Summary: Sadly Lexicon seems to have decided that no one actually needs 64-bit support, and Windows 7 support is still nowhere in sight. This is across their entire line of products. If you have a new computer with the latest OS, then the Lexicon line of products is NOT for you. They just flat out will NOT work. If you have an old XP machine lying around that you don't plan on upgrading, then the Lexicon line of recording studio hardware has a lot of bang for the buck.
Summary: I new I needed to buy another soundcard after a few days of use. It took a few days to get it installed and working properly because the drivers were buggy, hard to find, and the quality just wasn't there.
Summary: This worked fine and sounded fairly clear for the money, only minimal noise, that could be put down to my System. But it stopped working after I had it for a about 5 months or so. All it does is give out lots of noise, completely unusable. I've been forced to spend a little extra money on a Tascam US 122 as advised by a friend.
