"Great Job Roland!"
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
Very happy with the the recordings I have created. You get exactly what you record with no noise - plenty good enough to make your own CDs for distribution.
High quality pre-amps and a easy to setup digital mixer. It comes with heavy duty brackets for rack mounting. The critical circuits are isolated so as not to induce noise and comes with both Hi-Z and Lo-Z inputs along with 48 volt phantom power.It bundles with Cakewalk Sonar LE but works without a hitch with Reaper. If you are using a Mac, you will need to get your own DAW software.
Ease of Use:
The OCTA-CAPTURE is easy to use and set-up. As with all recording hardware, the toughest part is learning the software. I am a novice but the manual is strait forward and easy to comprehend.
Extremely well made - no cheap knobs or buttons. The recorded sound is more than what is needed to produce high quality compact discs. The unit is very stable and doesn't seem to be a resource hog. I even recorded with it on an old laptop and had no problems.
Have not had to use them yet.
Well worth the price for all the features and the ability to record a full garage band. It also came with a free upgrade to Cakewalk Sonar X1 Studio. I got a great deal through Sameday Music. Don't be afraid to call them and ask for a lower price than what you see advertised elsewhere.
The Wow Factor:
This piece of hardware will do up to 24 bit/192Khz recordings. I keep my settings on 24 bit/96Khz and the result is awesome!
This unit will render high quality recordings of your creative ambitions. So far, I have no found anything I don't like about it. The driver loaded just fine and the device shows up in Control Panel on Windows. A Mac driver is also supplied.
