douxxxx's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

See description on site dealer or manufacturer.

I use it for recording guitar pickup and Time Coded Vinyl.

I needed to ASIO.


Stable Driver


Installation performed without problem.


I use it since 2007, my first external sound card, it is more stable in reviews that Maya44 ... But now the cards are cheaper and more stable.

The latency is not super great, for the scratch is almost impossible, it is better to turn to the Serato ...

I do not have that choice, I would have bundled with Serato or other sound card dedicated to the Time Code

Esperluette's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

This external audio interface, trs compact if it is intended to particulirement DJs, will also provide quality solutions for other uses. All teams wishing to audiophiles their laptop or desktop computer to a system that purchase high-end audio will guide their choice on a MODEL that provides quality tural conversion AD / DA. The high quality converters that interface, is arguably one of its strengths.


Retailer manual clearly the possibilities of connections and use.
No particulire difficulty during the installation and handling.


In one configuration "audiophile" We have not had to worry about the stability of the pilots and found no phnomne latency.


Good points: The quality of the connections - both slecteurs three positions (phono, line, microphone) - The compactness - Robustness (case in mtal).
The weak point: No XLR.

gusfl's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" I"

What characteristics have motivated your choice?

- 3 stereo outputs, 2 stereo full duplex
- 2 phono integrated péampli
- HI-Z input (I needed to record a guitar)
-Phantom power if needed
It really low prices
-External self-powered USB (unless the mic phantom power is active

With which instruments or systems (console, preamp, DTD ...) do you use the connection and how?

everything is plugged in between my pc rca, my 4-channel mixer (750 DJX) and my platines.j uses it all under traktor pro
(+ In audacity, at home, to record a guitar input via the HI-Z)

For what purpose?

DJ: private parties, etc ... nothing "professional"

What is your config (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Hard ,...)
pc fixed in seven


The drivers are stable?

drivers are provided at the origin, (after the rumor), instables.mais there are new drivers (v3.0) download on the website of ESI that are perfectly stable.

They are often updated?
No, not my connaissance.Mais why the meter being given day they are stable?

How many tracks you get to record / playback simultaneously? ...

that the card is USB 1.1 (low speed), it must pass in order to use 44.1hz all entries at the same temps.en 48Hz, only four of the six outputs can be used (the last two do not work)

What software do you use most often?

Traktor Pro and Traktor Scratch Pro soon

What you get lag?

I use ASIO4ALL driver, which adds latency son.j a la carte 'gets through asio4all 14ms, 6ms via the ASIO driver, 8 ms through the classic interface (traktor values)


The installation is done it without problems?

Have you experienced any incompatibilities?
not, at least not yet

The general configuration is easy?
yes, very facile.le control panel is very simple

The manual is clear and sufficient?
yes, but it dates from 2005 and is no longer quite a day (the windows of Windows XP are not those of seven)


How long have you use it?
one month

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
no it's my first.

How would you rate the quality / price?
very good!

With experience, you do again this choice?
oui.j 'Will use the maya44usb liked, but hey you can not have everything .... and it has no phono preamp
