Great Value For The Price

By B Walker

from Reno Nevada

It's hard to beat the hercules 1612 in the "bang for the buck" category. It's clean sounding, easy to use and 12 analog inputs can go a long way. I use it with a laptop and Cuebase SX to record the bands I mix live using the direct outs on an Allen & Heath GL2200 board. It's created an additional revinue stream for me, and a service for the the local bands I run sound for. The live monitoring features on this unit are weak and the headphone output is way too low for effective use in a live situation. Other than that, it works great.

A Great firewire interface for the money, all those analog ins, and outs. This thing works great, wish the hercules mixer had some more features. BUY IT!!

Great interface for the money

By MacMan-cv4o1

from Pittsburgh

It's a Great interface for the money, firewire with 16 ins and 12 outs for $299, I have been using it for a while, once you get used to it , it has great functions, the only problem I have is with the interface software from Hercules could be a little better. I use it with Garage Band and Cubase.

I'm producind a Death Metal band with it for two months now and the only thing I lack is more than two zero latency outputs. Good performance and sound.
