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.
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
