"Switching the sample rate was a hassle"

The Edirol UA1000 only works with a Windows XP machine (unless they have changed the drivers from the time I was using it). It is a 10 in and 10 out interface that works via USB. I have gotten nothing but high quality audio recordings and play back with this interface. It is very versatile and has line inputs, mic inputs and even guitar inputs on it.


One of the huge downfalls on this interface is that you cannot change the sample rate on the fly (not that all interfaces allow that), you have to turn it completely off and back on after you change the sample rate and this can be a huge hassle especially when you have other people in your studio working with you and everything has to stop for a moment.


This interface does install very easily, it took not time at all to install and start using. Even if you are brand new to installing interfaces or if you are purchasing your first interface, this could be the perfect one for you. It works with USB only, no FireWire and it works great with a desktop set up or a mobile set up as long as you are using Windows computers.


I have used this interface with Cubase, and a laptop that was running XP 32 bit and it never gave me any problems. It does come with a well written manual just in case but I didn’t even need to use it at all. The interface is built to last a long time and is solid. The sample rate issue was the only problem that I didn’t like about it but it does have a rotary switch that offers 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96 kHz sample rates. But switching the unit off any time I wanted to switch was a huge hassle and I absolutely messed up my workflow many times.
