It looked like a little mixer with buttons knobs and lights, and I was finally gonna get a real digital recording interface. After gazing at walls of guitars basses for a bit more, I went back and bought the little YAMAHA mixer. Once HOME I set it up beside my Peavey PV8 Mixer ran the included USB cable into the pc tower..bingo the lights came on. I transferred the guitar jack and the`mic cable to the digi-mixer and was ready to test 1 2 into the mike. I still had to go in and set the audio card control to use the USB drivers and I was recording on my copy of Cool Edit.
For 139$cdn I bought the best new piece for my budgetstudio. It's made my recordings clearer and louder the compression is very useful I can bang away on the Fender and my speakers don't snap crackle or pop. If you are into Podcasting this tool and a good microphone and cables are all you need to record CD quality projects. You can read what others are saying about The AUDIOGRAM 6 below.
The AUDIOGRAM 6 features 2 XLR combo inputs with preamps and one-knob compression for dialing in the desired sound from microphones and instruments. One of these inputs has switchable phantom power for using high-quality condenser microphones. Two stereo inputs, stereo and headphone outputs, and a USB jack complete the unit’s connections. The AUDIOGRAM 6 includes separate controls for audio inputs and computer playback for complete control while recording.
Laid out like a mixer and so not have cables coming out from the front. USB powered, which is one cable less, and the ability to control DAW output while listening to live input. The single knob compressor is also a nice accessory on it, good and easy to use and not having to fiddle with a thousand knobs to get good compression that most listeners cannot tell apart.
