I mainly purchased this for its many among important as well as its price.
I use it mostly for MIDI recording. Sometimes audio with a condenser microphone.
I possde a laptop equipped with an Intel Core Duo (2x2 GHz) and 2GB RAM.


No problem during installation.
No problem of incompatibilits.
The manual is pretty clear and franais.


Drivers are stable with my configuration.
I mainly use this card with Sony Acid Pro 6 and I am thrilled.
Latency is almost zero (PS: I like ASIO).
I admit never having test more than 2 tracks simultaneous recording.
The pramplis are not as bad as I had heard.


I use this card for 2 years now.
What I like most: The simplicity the efficiency price.

The big downside of this card, it's food. Its power is well below what the card application to function properly. With pramplis branchs, 20 min from overheating diet. So I replaced with a universal laptop power (15 VDC, 3.5 A). From: happiness.

By consquent I have only give you advice: If you buy this card, change the power supply!
