Summary: I've had mine for over two months now, and so far this has been a great purchase. There's almost close to zero latency when I'm recording midi. Also the audio quality is tremendous, and I like the fact that I can switch between my monitors with a click of the button. I'm starting to produce music on a more professional level so this really helps me breeze through tracks, especially when it comes down to monitoring my mixes.
Summary: I got the Fast Track Pro at Guitar Center five years ago as my first piece of recording equipment. Now that I know a little bit more about audio, I'm glad that I went with this and think the price to performance ratio is great(especially because this came bundled with Pro Tools M-Powered). The preamps are not bad quality and it has balanced inputs and outputs.
Summary: This is probably the worst product I have ever purchased period. The preamps sound fine and the dual channel is a good deal on paper. The problem with this device lies purely in its practical functionality. It simply doesn't operate properly and after a lot of searching every troubleshooting forum I could find it seems the problems don't lie in some operating system or DAW compatibility flaw. Its something with the engineering of the product itself.
Summary: I agree with Member id fizh-zt I too bought the M-Audio FastTrack Pro USB Audio/MIDI Interface four weeks ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this audio device !!! It has Line/Instruments inputs, monitor output, S/PDIF interface, MIDI interface, TRS and RCA outputs. Great choice for home or mobile recording studio !
A very nice pre-amp to use for Pro Tools MP which won't drain your wallet.

Summary: If you are looking for a very nice, beginner's pre-amp with a load of features at an affordable price, The M-Audio Fast Track Pro is the pre-amp for you! It has a headphones out, two 48v phantom-powered XLR inputs, 4 RCA outputs, SPDIF connectors, 2 TRS outputs, and 2 inserts. This pre-amp is USB powered, or if you choose, it can be powered by a 9-Volt 500 mA power cable.
Basic level of external audio interfaces - robust unit for a small fee!

Summary: M-Audio Fast Track Pro Digital Recording Interface is a combination of reliability and low price. This is another unit of production of M-Audio features small size, the quality of the analog-digital process, the presence of two microphone inputs. Are supported by phantom power. The interface has its own software. The device connects to the connector USB. The main advantage of the device, in my opinion, is ergonomic to use.
Exceptional value for money regardless of skill level

Summary: I bought this product to record my physical instruments as well as use as a sound card for when trying my hand at mixing with DJ software and it has fit my needs perfectly. You really do get exceptional quality with the device and the freedom you have with it is quite amazing. I would do a bit of homework regarding device use with your software of choice before purchasing however as it can be a bit of a pain to set-up if you don't know what you're doing.
Easy to use with great sound quality. Excellent value!

Summary: I'm using the fast track pro with Garageband '11. It is very easy to setup and the software automatically recognizes it. So far I have only recorded with an electric guitar; haven't tried two track recording, microphone or the midi channel. I had to use the RCA outputs to get a good signal to my stereo system for monitor.
Does exactly what it says it does with ease and quality. Love it!

Summary: Fantastic little device! I record a lot with Garageband and increasingly with Logic. I needed something with phantom power for condenser mics, and something that I could easily run multiple guitars or sm57's into. This worked like a champ. What's fantastic is that it;s USB powered, so all you need is a computer to plug it into. I admittedly haven't done a ton to push it or use its digital interfaces, but so far I've been impressed.
