The M-Audio Project Mix I/O is a firewire based audio interface as well as a digital control surface. You have eight pre amps and eight faders and virtual channel strips that you can control at once. It has both XLR and 1/4 inch inputs for the pre amps and also has MIDI connections. Since this an M-Audio interface, you can run this with Pro Tools M-Powered or any other digital audio software.

UTILIZATION

The configuration of the M-Audio Project Mix I/O is pretty straightforward, even though it provides you with a wealth of options and things to control. The typical functions are really easy to figure out how to use, and every thing is laid out smartly, so it is easy to follow. The manual is pretty helpful for this unit and I would recommend having it around when possible, as there are a lot of ins and outs on this that can get pretty in depth.

SOUNDS

The sound quality of the pre amps in the M-Audio Project Mix I/O is about average. They aren't too thick and full sounding, but won't color your sound too much. The sound is clean, it just isn't as warm as pre amps that I would prefer to use. It doesn't have built in EQ, and can only control EQ and other effects virtually. Beyond the pre amps, there isn't too much to say about the sound quality as the rest just control different elements of your digital audio workstation.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the M-Audio Project Mix I/O on and off for about three years and I have come to the conclusion that it is a good audio interface for those who have M-Powered Pro Tools and small project studio owners. It is convenient to be able to run Pro Tools, but in itself it is good audio interface and a good digital control surface. The price is very reasonable, making it great for those who want to get into computer and digital recording, with or without Pro Tools. Overall, a great interface that has a lot of capabilities within itself.
