Use the LO CUT and LIMITER buttons to select what device you’re connecting to (PC/Mac or iOS), then press the AUTO LEVEL button. Well, pro's are absolutely the price and quality factors. You have some other options in this price range but it's one step ahead from in the segment that it belongs. In this point of view it's a god starting point for collecting audio samples and recording interviews etc. In the other hand if you want to record a direct signal for instance coming from a mixer or sound card, you do not have a line inputs. This may be a problem if you want to record a live session or a concert. For this I suggest you to buy H4 or higher versions, you can use them for both recording with build-in microphones and direct signal that comes from line-ins.
