'm new at this but I wanted to be able to record to my laptop using microphones and stereo line sources such as a CD player, etc. This unit was easy to hook up and use. No problems at all. Everything was included that I needed. I haven't used the software that came with it. I am using Audacity and am happy with it. This unit blended in perfectly with my hardware and software. GREAT audio quality.
