As anyone who works with computers and recording knows, latency is always a problem, but with CueMix FX, you can set up a record path which is close to zero latency, add a small amount of compression going into your host audio package, whilst treating your performer to a splash of reverb in the cans - ideal!

I immediately plugged in a mic and tested the theory and was immediately struck by the cleanliness of the signal. I have used other bus powered devices in the past, which have often suffered from lack of headroom or the odd buzz and whistle, but with a U87 on the front end, powered by 48V, delivery was clean and clear. I tracked up a few vocal takes to find real depth to the recordings. Replaying recordings on other devices can often sound sterile, but besides crisp and clear accuracy there was also real richness in the lower frequencies of my recorded voice, but with real clarity, presumably down to the 24bit conversion, and also in part to the quality of the Mic pre-amp. If you want to, you can drive this box up to a sampling rate of 192Khz, although I was working at the lower and more usual 44.1kHz.

Although the FX side of this device is most welcome, I did grapple for a few minutes to hear the Reverb. This, so it turns out, was just down to a switch on Cue Mix, which needed to be engaged, but it wasn't that obvious to me.

The compression and limiting options are incredibly useful, the compressor being based on the legendary LA-2A. Recording in the knowledge that I won't be peaking, and allowing me to concentrate on my score rather than checking the meters, is crucial for me.
