          Comments about Behringer FCA1616 Firepower:

          We bought this as the beginnings of an in-home studio. I have been real impressed with the simplicity and the capabilities that it has to offer. We use Reaper recording software and the two work real well together. There's still more for us to learn, but this will only allow us to improve our recordings.

          Comments about Behringer FCA1616 Firepower:

          For the price this is a great unit. You get 8 inputs and outputs, 4 of the inputs are for mic balanced connectors and allow phantom power. There are individual preamps with gain controls on inputs 1-4 to maximise the input signal to the DAW.

          Coming from a Tascam US-122L this is a good step up for me allowing lower latency and more simultaneous recording channels.
          I used this for the first time to record a friend and his duo partner and the sound is very clear with no latency whatsoever. I was able to track 3 instruments and vocals into 5 tracks simultaneously with only an hour or so playing around to set it up.

          It did take me some time to work out how to switch to USB mode and what settings to use to get 96kHz and 24 bit recording. This is were a decent and comprehensive manual would come in. I also struck problems working out what inputs to plug the instruments into and outputs to use to get additional headphone feeds to the artists. Again, a manual would help there.

          As I'm in Australia, post ordering this device I realised I hadn't considered the power situation. No problems because the transformer is 110/240 volts. The AC cord is separate from the transformer (2-pin plug in) and I was able to use a spare cord from an old laptop transformer as the supplied one had US style pins.

            Comments about Behringer FCA1616 Firepower:

            Sounds as good as a Focusrite Scarlet. All the buttons are useful. The headphones can be very loud when turned up to 3/4 and when the main output is turned up to 3/4 - which somehow does not cause the playback meter on my DAW to distort. Very low recording noise such as hiss and hum. My DAW record meter is at or near bottom when record button is on. Zero problems downloading the driver and zero problems installing it. This interface is very easy to use. I am not one to leave reviews, but this product is so well thought out that I wanted to give Behringer a well deserved pat on the back. If you buy this unit, you will like it, use it, and keep it.
