5.0 out of 5 stars Works well with Linux, 12 Sep 2012

This review is from: Alesis RAL I/O2 Express grey (Electronics)
I am updating this review after owning this for a few weeks. The more I have used this the more pleased with it I am. It works well with Linux which is an essential for me. The 24 bit audio sounds good and the unit has lots of features for the price making it versatile. I had read criticisms about construction but it seemed OK: I have managed to buy a plastic container to hold it as damage to exposed knobs & switches in transit seems the big danger.

Why spend a fortune on a portastudio type device when this can turn your computer into one for a lot less. Also, look at a Linux distro like 'Ubuntu Studio' to use lots of free software - so much more than the included crippleware on the disc that comes with the io2. It is a bit of a learning curve but worth it as the software is brilliant these days.
