      Quality is amazing. It feels solid. Knobs are as smooth as they get. 35 days after purchase the right speaker stopped working. I need to fiddle with random buttons till speaker turns on. Very weird.

      Comments about ART USB Mix 3-Channel Mixer and Computer Audio Interface:

      Unfortunately this did not fit the bill for me, the USB interface only supports 2 channel recording. So while it was possible to record on all 3 channels at once, it only sends a 2 channel mix to the USB, therefore it is not posible to actually record all 3 of them as seperate channels. This was unacceptable for my needs as I needed separate microphone and stereo line inputs.

      The drivers are poor for professional recording, third party software such as ASIO4ALL needed to be installed to use it as an ASIO interface.

      Only 16 bit recording and 44100Hz or 48000Hz sample rates; but 48000Hz was problematic at times.

      USB interface aside, this works well as a basic small mixer and is quite well built.

        Quality hardware, full metal case and connectors. POTs have a good consistent feel. I was already familiar with Audacity so this was another plus. My WIN7Pro laptop detected it and installation was a breeze.

        Comments about ART USB Mix 3-Channel Mixer and Computer Audio Interface:

        I recently did a webcast and needed to take a line feed from the mixer and attach it to an audio stream being generated with an application on my laptop. This mixer gave me the control I needed to ensure good sound quality. The one thing that isn't so great about it is that you can't easily reconfigure your systems sound devices once the mixer is disconnected.
