    " The home-studio interface you’ve always wanted but could never afford, now for an entirely affordable price. I’ve grown up a music/audio nerd, and always wanted a box like this, but they used to run $500 for less features. Now I’ve finally found a box that does everything, with almost no latency, no tech issues so far. The software powerful and has tons of options, but is also easy to use & understand, so it’s good for rookies as well as pros. And it’s air feature is revolutionary in dealing with cramped audio booths. There are apps that let it sync with iphone/ipad/ipod as well as desktop. Don’t bump it, some of the stuff on the back is pretty fragile. "
