  • Rock solid as all Echo products I have used

    As reviewed by Nick Lewis on 2/26/2009

    I?m running three of these together at my church on a Windows XP system with Nuendo. I?ve recorded full 36 tracks at 24/88.2 glitch free. Quality converters, I hold them up against much more expensive units. Before I upgraded to the Audiofire, I had been using four of the older Echo Layla 20 bit interfaces for years with no trouble at all. If your looking for a quality, rock solid, meat and potatoes interface, Echo is the way to go?..

  • Nice Interface...But Very Basic Routing

    As reviewed by Ryan Freer on 7/10/2010

    I've only had my AudioFire12 for about 2-weeks now and thus far, it's excellent. If you use hardware mixing consoles with direct-outs on each channel, this interface is nearly perfect. The real drawback is the fact that its outputs provide only the most basic routing options. You can't even create a stereo b-mix on a separate set of outputs that's identical to your main mix! For me, this is a problem because the AF12 has no 1/4 inch headphone out. I have to connect its main outs back into the RCA tape inputs on my Mackie 1604 in order to monitor a mix alternately with both my speakers and headphones. Doing this adds more noise to the final signal I hear when monitoring, which I'd prefer to eliminate. Aside from that issue, the A/D conversion is definitely pristine. Originally I bought a MOTU 828 MkIII that had been damaged in transit when it was shipped. I returned it for this interface instead simply because I had no need for the preamps, on-board effects, or stand-alone mixing featured in the 828. Plus, all twelve of the AF12?s inputs are on the rear, which made it easy to connect a TRS snake from my Mackie?s 8 direct-outs and 4-channel bus. Very Nice! I can certainly recommend the AF12 for anyone using plenty of outboard gear, but you need to know that it's not as flexible as many other interfaces in its price range. There's also no SPDIF or ADAT I/O, but I personally don't need that. It still has great 24-bit converters that can record up to 192-kHz...and the fact that it has Word Clock I/O totally sold me! It was obviously meant to be an expansion interface--assuming you already have one--providing you with twelve extra analog I/O. Its latency is fortunately quite low, but I'll really need to put it to the test on a newer PC. Like my old Echo Gina-20, I plan to be holding on to this one for quite some time.
