Manufacturer's product page: http://artproaudio.com/mixers/product/usb_mix-ps/
The USBMix from ART Pro Audio is a CLASS COMPLIANT usb audio interface and 3 channel mixer. This means it works immediately out of the box with all Linux flavors and of course Windows, Apple, etc OS's as well. The Linux part is a big deal, usb audio on Linux is painfully under supported due to the lack of proprietary drivers from manufacturers.
Other nice points:
*Can be used as a stand-alone mixer with the included usb wall adapter (no computer necessary)
*Tiny and portable (1.6" x 4.0" x 4.75")
*All metal case, seems very solid and durable
*Affordable!! approx $70 from most vendors!!
*Hell, at that price you could just grab one and use it as a wicked headphone amp for your gambois!
I've been using one of these for a few weeks and am utterly in love with it. The ART USBMix replaced my Steinberg CI1 when I switched completely to Linux (finally) and discovered that the CI1 was not supported in any usable/reliable way.
If you have any specific questions about this little beauty just post them here and I'll try to answer as best I can.
