- What do you use it for?

Audio recording and playback

What's your setup (motherboard, CPU, RAM, hard drive,...)?

Average PC: 1.66 GHz CPU, 1 GB Ram

- Do you use it with other instruments or systems (mixing console, preamp, DtD, ...) and what's your setup?

I connect the output of my Soundcraft EPM6 to both XLR inputs and the sound goes to the PC via Firewire. I also use a Yamaha DX7 Midi keyboard (I use it as a master keyboard but also when I have math homework ^_^)

I connect the output of my Soundcraft EPM6 to both XLR inputs and the sound goes to the PC via Firewire. I also use a Yamaha DX7 Midi keyboard (I use it as a master keyboard but also when I have math homework ^_^)

UTILIZATION

- Did you have any problems during the installation?

Nope

- Did you have any incompatibility problems?

Nope

- How complicated is the overall configuration?

Power up, plug in, select the sample rate and that's it...

- Is the user's manual clear and comprehensive?

Yes

GETTING STARTED

Is the driver stable?

No problems with Vista (for once!) Notice: There is no control software so you must make all settings on the hardware, which isn't a lot fun considering the size of the knobs. A small Roland-like utility would be a better solution... but it's a small detail.

- Are they up-to-date?

Yes I guess...

- Which software do you use?

Reason 3, Recycle 2.1 and Cubase SX3

- What's the latency of your system?

Between 0 and 7 ms

- How many tracks can you record/playback simultaneously?

I haven't made an actual test but I'd say several dozens

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you been using it?

About six months

- Which feature do you like the most / the least?

Pros: Sound quality, virtually no latency, RCA and MIDI inputs, sturdy housing.

Cons: No control software, small knobs.

- Did you try any other models before buying it?

Someone lent me a Motu 828mkII, which is great, but not that much better than this small interface...

- How would you rate its value for money?

Very good

- Based on your experience, would you buy this product again?

Yes.

Buy it if you don't have a lot of money BUT do want good-quality gear. If you have enough money, check out Motu or RME...

IMPLEMENTATION

Of course, drivers are not the only concern for this card. It also puts the buzzs in monitors (Yamaha HS80) is a source of static electricity for ordis ... We had to mix the monitors on a table to solve the problem plug them directly into the card is a cat.
reliability is close to 0

NOTICE GLOBAL

I use it for three years (unfortunately) I'll change. I do not even look for resell as I did not want a new owner to know the same misery as me.
I am not an isolated case and my product is not dfectueux, just a search to see how much she plant, saccade, makes noise in monitors. Do not buy.

Audio Card External Fire Wire.
All the connections that you may need as a guitarist. 2 sockets with ghosts jack 6.5m. Perfect for connecting an amp head with an XLR output and a microphone.

UTILIZATION

Used on PC and Mac - No problem with installation

UTILIZATION

In contrast, no update, but from the moment it works in good condition, well ... I do not see the usefulness

I use 2-track simultaneous max.

Very good sound quality, fully respects the instruments / mics that I branch, and used with ProLogic is a marvel.
I'm using it at home for my little personal production (useful for my models to share with the group ...) quality is at the appointment.

GETTING STARTED

No worries particular.
The instructions are clear enough, if only one is not totally a novice. But to me she was very helpful.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 years now, and I am glad it is functionally very good sound and very easy to use.
I have not had a test in others, I tested this model with a friend, I was conquered, so I've purchased a second-hand, as saying that the 150th value price is more than reasonable.
No negative points for my own use ... (Guitarist who likes to put his plans on MP3 to share with the group, or to dial ...)
