The award winning MIDAS mic-pre's sound nice, signal padding is an option on all inputs individually to reduce the input gain dramatically if required and naturally gain adjustment along with instrument/mic or line selection with LED indicators are present on the interface. Two interesting features I found are the A/B output select if you have multiple playback outputs you may select between them (only controllable using the mix knob also changing the main output). In addition to this I found the mono/stereo output select option useful for mastering which not many interfaces include. As well as all of this the interface has 1 X Midi input and 1 X Midi output on the back, headphone output with independent volume knob. The kensington lock was a clever feature but the RCA output made me question why they added them, the main output is either left and right XLR or 2 X balanced Jack, the A/B outputs can also be unbalanced jack. If I had to criticise one thing about this unit it would have to be that the phantom power switch provides +48v power to ALL OF THE INPUTS not just allowing each input the option to have power or not meaning either everything plugged in must be a condenser mic or none of them can be. This could be dangerous if ignored.
This interface is better than what you would expect from the general behringer consensus. Its very sturdy and versatile but has little things that dont make it exceptional. For example the headphone outputs are pretty noisy and the I/O is lame on the output realm. Also the lack of a power switch sort of blows, but it sounds good!
I use to be an avid non-supporter of behringer products, however they've since acquired Midas!!! So far so good. I needed it for the two sets of outs for cueing ability in ableton
