    I have been using this product for a few months now. So far so good. The M audio M track 8 does exactly what it is supposed to do. Excellent sound quality and it’s a no-brainer to install it’s drivers to your computer. I had audio up and running within a few minutes of setting it up! Happy camper here.

    Since I’ve had the interface its served its purpose well, for the price its brilliant I haven’t used it to its full potential and only made some small recordings but overall fantastic for what your paying.

    Overall, I’d say the sound quality is pretty superb for a unit under a thousand bucks. The preamps are quite generous with
    accurate capture of sound. What goes in, is what you are hearing and nothing less. I spend very little time adjusting software EQ, post tracking. Only slight adjustments need to be made and I’m well within the desired range of sound I’m seeking out of my instruments/vocals.

    Needed a new USB interface for my DAW and have always been pleased with M-Audio’s gear (I’ve got one of their MIDI’s as my primary keyboard in the studio) so I figured I would try out this unit. Very pleased overall. Does it’s job, audio remains crystal clear as if it never passed through a unit. I like that it has an eco friendly mode that conserves power, because having a lot of rack mount units hooked up starts to pull a lot of extra power, and every bit saved is worth it. The display is nice, well organised and easy to read. Only drawback is that the unit gets hot fast, not like fry an egg hot and no where near enough to impact performance or damage the components, but just enough to make if uncomfortable to put your hand on top of the unit for more that 15 seconds. Of course any good rack setup has a cooling fan, so just place it directly above or below the unit and you won’t ever run into the heating issue.
    Overall, a great unit, and when I need to replace some of my others I’ll definitely be getting a few more of these.

    I bought this to record vocals with studio one on a windows 8 computer and it works great. I have also tried it on my laptop which runs on windows 10 and it also works great. Never had an issue with the drivers as most people say. Finding and installing the drivers was easy as well. Knobs feel solid and smooth as you turn them. This big knob for your monitor playback volume is very nice design! LED lights are accurate and cool looking.
