"Issues with Mac computers"

The UA-4FX is an affordable interface that connects to computers via USB 2.0 port. There are 14 effects that come with it and one of them is great, it is the COSM mic preamp simulator. It also comes with Sonar LE and a plug in that only works with PC computers. I have used this interface on a Windows XP laptop 32 bit and it worked fine. Setting it up was a breeze and all of the recordings and playback that I got out of it were very high quality. You can also use this interface with a Mac computer but I have heard that there are issues when using the included plug in on a Mac.

UTILIZATION

If you are an XP user you can use the Surround Sound function (S/PDIF) output but this is only for a PC Windows XP user. I am not sure why this function isn’t available to more systems though. The effects are one of my favorite parts with it.

GETTING STARTED

There is a multi band compressor and limiter to use on master tracks that sound really good and I would take them over any standard compression and limiters that come with a software or DAW. Plus it has the basic reverbs and delays/distortions for a guitar.

OVERALL OPINION

Being that this software works great with XP and is shaky on a Mac it really depends on what system the user has and if they want to put up with the headaches that could arise (for Mac users). If you are a Windows user I recommend using this and even working in the Dolby Digital surround sound with it, you can do some great stuff if you are into working with film. If you are a Mac user, I would probably hold off until they figure out what is going on with the compatibility issues.
