Layla 3G is Amazing.......

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Echo Layla3G PCI Audio Interface:

I was introduced to the layla from two friends, in seperate studios, recomended it. I purchased mine and it has worked flawlessly for 5 years. I thought about upgrading at one point but i decided not to because i could not be happier. New drivers are often available and I would reccoment this unit to anyone with a home recording studio. The sound is fantastic....MasterJamMasters............................

Great unit, if it worked

By Wickens

Comments about Echo Layla3G PCI Audio Interface:

I may be the odd one out here, but my unit has been defective since I purchased it.I've tried support, and while they did try literally everything they never brought up having to send it back.I rented a unit to test to make sure it was the Echo that was defective and it was.I suggested paying the difference and sending the unit back to get one of the new Echo interfaces but they would only let me do a straight trade for a Fire 8 with no ADAT. Which is why I bought the echo because it was a good price and had 2 pre's and ADATS for expansion.I'm going to be buying a MOTU unit this week and I will finally be able to do some recordings.

Comments about Echo Layla3G PCI Audio Interface:

Awesome Audio Interface. Configured it to work with my Linux (Ubuntu Studio Hardy). It took a little configuring but got to work nicely with Ardour DAW.

Nice Interface

By Eardrumz

from Washington, DC

Comments about Echo Layla3G PCI Audio Interface:

This is most def a very functionl unit. The Mic pre are clean and the unit intergrates very well with DAWs such as reason and Sonar 3 Prod Ed. Just play arround the Buffer size for different application sceenarios.I think the Mic Pre need a little more gain as you have to crank it up high to get a decent recording level into your DAW. From a price range standpoint, I would also consider a MOTU 828mkII.

By Juan-9u67E

Comments about Echo Layla3G PCI Audio Interface:

I got this soundcard because it said it was powermac G5 compatible. I tried to install it only to find out the pci card does not phisicaly fit, what a disappointment. And so much for their tech support,I've tried to get in touch with ECHO but they won't even answer my mail's, save your money.
