Psycom (below) has the résumé trs well CHARACTERISTICS audionumrique of this card, no need to add more.

Except that intrt precisely the first of this card has 8 analog outputs of the jack in box 6.35 on a half-rack dport. IDAL to mix externally on a console preferences to avoid losing quality for quality in fact, these converters are trs trs good.

The fact that there are only two inputs is just my opinion not stupid, since with the help of a console, you attack the card and recording audionumrique with subgroups This Premire. simple, effective and very practical. s precisely why you need an 8 in / 8 out, when you do not catch such batteries do, but just guitars, vocals, synths?

I use it mainly on an old Apple G3, 400MHz, with 512MB of ram, and I have encountered so far no problem.

UTILIZATION

Drivers stable day and put on the site of echoaudio.com, so no problem to report this view l. trs simple to use, the Asio drivers for Digital or Protools The work perfectly, as well as all the "small" software I use, such as Peak, Recycle, T-Racks, etc..

GETTING STARTED

Latency ridiculous irrprochable quality audio, I do not at present precisely the intrt about me moving in Gina 24, except for the bluff that is the kick-24 / 96, simple gotcha to change computer configuration. I made several discs and pro in 16/44, one with this card, with my old mac, and always keep the road!

OVERALL OPINION

In three years, this card has me not aged.
solid, simple, efficient again, it remains a REFERENCE me.
I've seen a lot and try before I DCID for this brand that I did not know, and in all simplicity I do not regret my purchase.
currently using this card yet home ranges 9 / 16 of a good old mackie, and the sound does not blush!

I saw rcemment we could find for this card complte OCCAZ for 250 euro on average, which is a bargain! no no no I am not selling mine!

yes, no doubt, to its two inputs (no need for more personally), eight outputs, its i / o SP / DIF idalie to sample from my ... samplers, this card, if I were for one reason or another not to have it in my studio, this card so I buy it back!

8 analog outputs, convenient to rework the sound externally, but useless for a lot of uses. 2 analog inputs.
I / O SPDIF 20-bit works perfectly (the card is synchronized with numrique no problem).
My config: PIII 933 512 MB RAM under Win98.
Eventually I used the I / O SPDIF, however the analog I / O converters are good (very little breath)

UTILIZATION

Map possde a PCI card and an external rack to limit the interference, Electromagnetic. The cable that connects them is blind trs.

After the driver install the card works and is easy to use.

GETTING STARTED

The installation under 98 is nickel, in the era Win2000 drivers n'taient not perfect on the other hand.
I was using Cubase with this card, with less than 20 ms latency (12 if I remember correctly), with a reasonable number of audio tracks.

OVERALL OPINION

I used it for 3 years and j'tais trs happy with his stability and the quality of the converters. Now that Gina is 24 MODEL latest issue, we find the 20 bits used, this card as I think more than enough for recording quality.

By rflchissez against the usefulness of the number of audio outputs (8). Finally, in many cases, prfre 8 inputs. Turn in this case to his big sisters.
