The WDM device measures 145mm across with a foot print that is roughly the size of A5 paper. It does not need a big space since it is designed to nestle on small spaces that can be found beside a computer. The WDM device has been designed to derive all its power through the USB and fire wire connection. The WDM is a standalone mixer and pre amp that has a panel for the on and off switch. More switches can be found on the front side of the WDM unit. The combi socket is one of the prominent switches that can be found on the front side. This makes the WDM compatible with XLR and quarter inch jack plugs. XLR is for microphones and helps with the 48V phantom that is supplied when the first of the three front panel buttons are pressed which is indicated by a green LED that indicates presences of power. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and CME Matrix K FW WDM Audio errors before installing any driver updates.
