The Phonic Helix 18 is a 14 channel mixer that will work with Windows computers running XP service pack 1 and service pack 2 and even Vista computers in 32 and 64 bit. You will just need to have a faster processor for it to work perfectly. These specs are very important with this interface because there are some driver issues and compatibility issues that can come about.


Setting up this interface is quick and easy, it does come with a manual that is easy to follow and understand. This unit is not rackable and does require wall power. You can connect this to you computer via USB or Firewire, but I prefer Firewire because it was a faster and more reliable connection for me on my Windows computer.


There are over 100 programs and internal effects processing in this mixer and you can even expand it with daisy chaining 2 of these together to expand. You can use this with a Mac computer and form my personal experience it will work with just about any Mac running 10.0 or higher OS X. There are no MIDI ports on this unit but you can record up to 16 tracks at the same time. This interface is perfect for a larger set up, possibly to record live instruments with for a band or group. This mixer has never given us any problems out of the dozen or so times that we have used it.


Being that this interface has great preamps and over all sound, the distortion is also very low. I recommend all home studio musicians who want to record a lot of tracks at the same time get this. It is very affordable for the specs that it has. Even DJ’s will love this mixer and it is should cost more than what it does. It is very powerful and versatile.
