Good interface

Sashiimi, 03.05.2018
This is a good interface, however, mine came with the 48v channel sending out 80v for some reason and I couldn't plug two 48v dependant devices without it starting to make noise.

You should have a powered usb hub for this interface just to be sure it receives all the juice it needs to function properly.

The audio quality is good, preamps are fairly quiet and it is really really well build.

if it wasn't for the fact that it came broken in the first place, I'd easily give it 4+ stars, however, seeing it as a recurrent problem online, I'm afraid I cannot.

The drivers sometimes bug and I'm left with no sound and have turn the interface on and off.

If you're planing to use this with a guitar, you should have a DI Box because with RG421's quantum pickups, on the lowest gain possible, it still clips slightly.

Overall, it's a worth considering interface, with great build and sound quality. However, i'd recommend you checking out a newer presonus one or a Focusrite interface if the price difference doesnt bother you. Look for one with a pad button if you plan to use a guitar.

Nice simple interface with MIDI.

Riccardo D., 24.09.2018
The AudioBox USB 86 is good. No boutique preamps of course, but it's built like a small tank and the sound is clean without audible artifacts. Most importantly for me, it has MIDI. That's why I chose it over similarly priced Focusrite products.

One small gripe I have is with the gain knobs. Their physical arrangement is less than immediate to grasp (I admit this is a minor issue). Also, I don't like the input/playback balance knob. I would have preferred to have separate potentiometers, or at least a signal path/mixer application in the audio card driver bundle (RME or MOTU style).

The software that comes with the card isn't bad at all, but Studio One is a crippled version that won't load VST/VSTi's, making it almost useless as a real production DAW. The provided plugins are really good - but remember, not VST/VSTi format, so you can only use them with this limited version of Studio One. Lexicon wouldn't even reply to my many messages asking for authorization info, so I wrote it off. Don't count on Lexicon plugins with this bundle.

Overall, I'm very happy with this card. I use it mainly for small edits on a secondary computer, with little recording (quick fixes on direct bass, synth noises). It works quite well, and I would choose it again if I only needed 2in/2out.
