5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: This is a great product. Everything that i expected it to be. Its certainly not a professional's preamp by any means, but it gets the job done.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Its nice that this thing is self powered, however, it would be nice if it had the option to be wall powered as well. Also, its alot easier to use this box if you have pro tools m-powered.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the Money

Pros: Great features for the money

Cons: Can be unreliable for Live settings

Other Thoughts: I've been using the MobilePre for live recordings four hours a week for over a year and have found it to be ok for the price. I needed to get the XLR from our wireless receivers into the computer and it works most of the time. About ten times a year it will suddenly go crazy in the middle of a recording. The volume will get uncontrollably loud and/or full of static or record so the vocals sound like the chipmunks! The only thing that stops it is a reboot of the computer. I had a replacement sent out after the company claimed they never heard of that happening before. I've replaced the USB Cable but it still happens. It might be the cheap emachine running XP that is the problem but I thought I would at least warn people. The other reviews' warnings at ama-z-n are true with my experience. I haven't had good support and haven't been impressed with the software interface. If you need total reliability in a live recording there are now many more options for USB or Firewire
