Very pleased

19.02.2017
I'm using this audio interface mostly for recording acoustic music, usually in pair with my Neumann KM 184.

Pros:

I must say that the sound quality is incredible, no self-noise or coloration, it's pure and clear.

The stereo picture is wide and realistic, even when listening on headphones you feel like you sitting in front of a performer, the level of detail is amazing. This also uncovers any recording problems and poor mic placement which you won't hear in consumer audio gear.

I've been using Fireface UC for a few months and never experienced any dropouts or any driver problems (running it on Windows 10), it's very stable.

Delay-free monitoring is a very useful feature when you're recording.

It might take a bit to get used to controls if you're upgrading from a less complex interface, but the manual book provides clear instructions.

Cons: none in terms of performance and quality.

I wish they'd add a possibility of using FX with delay-free monitoring, but unfortunately, it's not supported in this model, so you can only monitor dry sound without delay.

The only con I could find so far is a green light on power supply's cable, which is so strong that unintentionally functions as a night light, which can be a bit annoying.

All in all, it's a great product and I'm very satisfied.
Also, I would like to express my gratitude to Thomann for their great job on packaging, it came in a huge box filled with bubble packets.

Great interface

Suman, 05.07.2016
I bought this interface to replace the Tascam US144 mkii which I'd been using previously and am so far very happy. I have it plugged into my Macbook via USB and the interface is then outputting to powered Behringer Truth B2031 studio monitors via 1/4 inch jacks. The set up sounds great and I've used it to record acoustic bass, electric bass, electric guitar and horns with no problems. There were no latency issues (recording audio with the Tascam was a nightmare) and I got some very good sounding recordings. I've also used this set up to do some basic mixing and had no problems. It works seamlessly with Logic Audio.

I haven't done much messing about with the USB settings or with the TotalMix software (virtual mixing desk) that comes with it but they seem pretty standard. I think there's probably a lot of features that I don't yet have the know how to use but will hopefully work out in the future!

All in all this interface does everything I need it to do without much fuss. I get the impression that it will also meet my needs for a long time into the future as I get more into home recording and mixing.
