The TriCapture is alright for simple recordings and playback. In my experience it doesn't do well at 96k sample rate. Using 96k will disable recording and loop-back functions, and I get crackles/pops regardless of latency setting. Using 48k or 41k sample rate on the other hand, is flawless, and can perform at lowest possible latency (6.7 msec input, 2.9 msec output @ 48k, per Sonar X3). Another thing to keep in mind is it's only a 2x2 usb interface, so you won't be able to record 3 separate tracks (the stereo input gets merged). And finally, the pre-amps can introduce a bit of noise once you go above 75% gain level, though you most likely never need it that high. Obviously most of these issues are outlined in the manual, but they can be overlooked. I would say this device is perfect for podcasts or solo recording sessions, and would recommend, especially at the price level.
