Interesting combination of audio and MIDI interfaces with additional MIDI control via nine faders, eight pots, zoom and transport control plus several other buttons. Great idea, though in pratice a little tricky to setup on a Mac at least. I experienced a little audio glitching on playback and the MIDI was ok though the control was a bit hit or miss.

Lack of visual feedback on the unit makes it's a poor relative of Mackie Control etc, but the price is pretty attractive.

Good Points
Compact, MIDI and Audio interface good for desktop use and MIDI control can really aid sequencer operation - one really useful feature being a monitor level knob - nice if you are using active speakers. More for a programming setup than critical applications
Bad Points
not moving faders, little visual feedback, audio a bit flaky. Light plastic construction. Don't let this put you off too much though
