I bought this card because the price for its CHARACTERISTICS are very interesting.
I made a private use to record a vocal group and my house to mix different sound sources.
I use it on a laptop Compaq Athlon 2400, and a desktop Pentium IV 2.4 Ghz.
I mix mostly ambient microphones.
The product I bought does not work, the drivers are buggy and unusable compltement ... Hercules could put the CD's days ...
But thanks internet I could download any updates that have run my card.
The book is CUBASE LE software (SONAR is a demo version unusable)
CUBASE LE 4 simultaneous input brid: So Hercules sells a box with 12 inputs, but provides no tool to use?
Therefore buy SONAR CUBASE SX or to use the card ... if you do not prvu budget we can put the card the trash ...
It's easy to say we ssay this card with Cubase, Sonar ... ABLETON ... etc. when you pirate software, but it's not normal!!
(I had on my desktop PC card AUDIGY had t book with a multitude of very powerful tool to use compltement the map, with Hercules is not the case! !)
Then why my bill does not exceed 5 / 10


Installation is no problem but does not work with the software drivers


With the latest drivers the card is not always recognized, and sometimes you lose contact, you must restart the
I record 4 tracks the time since Cubase 4 is brid
With MIDI I sometimes cracking I have a PC Pentium IV 2.4 Ghz, 512 MB, this is not the last out, but it's not a scooter, it works very well also.
Cubase LE does not latency (such as Cubase SX) but I do not feel


I use it for 15 days, the first case of its kind that I use ...
qualitprix report because it normally means adding a correct software such as Cubase SX to use this map ...
I would do this choice because the competing products are more expensive and I'm doing like everyone else but I can not find a normal ...
