Really happy with the interface. The preamps sound great and latency is low over usb.
The built-in effects sound good, and I look forward to trying out different ones.

The mic emulations sound excellent, and that's what I'm most excited about.

Discrete 4 Synergy Core is head and shoulders above the rest. I knew I was getting a good audio interface but the sound is incredible and the bundled plug-ins are top notch

I 've been in possession of this sound card for 6 months. It is pleasing that support and updates work very well. So is the map itself. We sometimes rehearse at home and can use it to give everyone a mix in headphones and not make noise. Sound quality at height. Quality of execution and design too! I recommend.

Recently purchased the Discrete 4 SC as a companion to my recently purchased Edge Solo mic. So far I'm really enjoying the combo. The effects are fantastic! As are guitar amp models. I love that it has 4 headphone mixes that I can send of to different musicians. Also putting a reverb on the headphone mix is fast and simple. The audio quality and driver stability seems ultra high quality and solid.

The unit itself sounds great! I really like the FX that comes with the interface as they are extremely useful when tracking and mixing. The only downside to this interface has been the launcher and control panel software. I don't like that in order to bus out of Pro Tools I need to also send out of control panel, this does not make sense to me as with any other interface if you send out of the DAW it is automatically routed out of the interfaces outputs. The control panel took some getting used to but other than that the sound is impeccable, the internal clocking is fantastic as I feel like I am hearing clearer and the preamps are transparent and awesome.
