It's good for the price, this was my first venture into recording with dedicated hardware and this really captures the sound quite well. Now don't get me wrong, this isn't amazing, but it's pretty good for what you pay. As well as this I had a few bugs getting the drivers to work (the ones one the disk are well out of date and wouldn't work with windows 7) but the new ones are easily accessible through the website and after that it's worked fine. The interface is fairly simple to use and the hardware seems pretty well made, enough to survive a few drops and knocks from my guitar.

Great piece of kit, delivered when promised, sounds quality :) Bass doesn't record very well though, maybe I'm just not doing it properly lol. Either way, good service and product

I was looking for a simple and effective ( cheap) recording setup. The choice was between this and the low end Line 6 product. Installation was a breeze, but its a very steep learning curve to produce some adaquate results. Three days later and everything is much easier. The sounds are great and the results are better than I could have hoped for. An excellent buy for a first foray into home recording.

My M-audio box arrived in the post and worked straight away.
I am not a technician and I have found some of the PC music software hard to understand. The M-audio is easier to set up and use than most of the others I have encountered although there was some head scratching.
My requirement is to make 'demos' of multi instrument songs where each instrument is added to the mix incrementally. The box and the software does quite a good job of this.
Why only 4 points? Partly the product - it needed setting up (i.e. it did not straight away) but perhaps with a variety of computer operating systems this is a necessity and partly the ease of use (this is probably me) but is almost (but not 100%) intuative.

Got this for my brand new notebook, works terrible, pops/clicks drop-outs, the current driver from m-audio is not working properly with windows 7 64-bit.
External usb audio interfaces are used mainly by notebook users, not desktop, they can buy a internal card.
My pc specs are not low either, intel i5, 4gb ram, 1gb nvidia, 750gig hdd, the installer and driver should work properly but does not, looked at official and unofficial forums and users of windows 7 are having all sort of problems with the Fasttrack usb interface.
I read if I used windows xp or a mac it works ok, great.
Not Anderton's fault but M-audio is failing users of the latest PC OS.
The current driver has been available since December, If m-audio doesn't sort out the driver and the installer in the next couple of weeks, I'll eBay this, cut my losses and forget m-audio products for a very long time.
If you use windows 7 with a current spec PC and want an audio USB interface, buy this at your own risk.

Since my last review there have been many Windows 7 64-bit system updates by Microsoft and now the Fast Track USB works fine with my laptop.
The driver from M-Audio hasn't been updated, after all it seems it was a Windows issue, not M-Audio.
Anyway just wanted to update you that the Fast Track USB now works on my laptop running WIndows 7 64-bit, so please take down my old negative review.
Seems it wasn't M-audio's fault after all.
