    Excellent sound quality and included software.
    Tricky to install, couldn't make it work under Windows 7 64 bits - worked flawlessly with Windows 8 64 bit though (on the same computer).

      Pops and clicks

          Comments about Avid Recording Studio - Vocal and Instrument Recording System:

          I tried this with my Pentium 4 2.80GHz 1GB DRAM HP computer. It runs, but the audio is bad (I hear pops, clicks, high volume high pitch noise). I tried everything the techs recommended but did not resolve the problem. It even happens playing an mp3 with Windows Media Player! I am returning it.

              The Pro Tools SE would start to record and then distort.Sometimes give an error message. Completely useless. Pro Tools will give no customer support to the SE except through emails.

                Comments about Avid Recording Studio - Vocal and Instrument Recording System:

                I am a novice film maker and I needed to upgrade from my camera microphone for voiceovers. This recording interface sounds great and works great with my iMac. I have not had much use of it yet but so far it sounds amazing. I am unsure about recording two tracks at one time. I am not a big fan of the ProTools SE. I have been using Adobe Sound booth for a while and it was incredibly easy to create voice overs for my productions.
