No

SE4 Cubase, Acid

10 ms default setting is sufficient and I have no cracks.

Record: 2
Read: 10 to 15 without problems with the dose of VST.RAS on this point. For cons, the panel is a bit ugly. It starts with rowing VST gourmet style IR reverbs ..

GETTING STARTED

The installation is done it without problems?
On Windows XP, yes.

Have you experienced any incompatibilities?

Not seen a manual but the online documentation is available!

Excellent. I paid 200 € and the sound I am going (see my myspace http://www.myspace.com/tedgmgsux)

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
Yes, or I'll wait a little history of me taking a MOTU who seem to be really small onions

Well, in the end, I put 8 / 10. It's cheap, it's good stuff, easy to use, the fan will not be lost and the novice can navigate. Firewire is handy and level drivers is particularly stable with the following config.
A good second card! <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="" />
