Newrone's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" I very much regret this purchase"

M-Audio Firewire 410
I had already bought a second FW410 for my studio in town (Win7 64 bit) before problems start with the first (on XP) driver disappears repeatedly for no apparent reason and technicians / advisors on M-Audio can not solve the pb.

Then it happens on the second too. And now it does not work at all.

It's been four years, with a few "updates" (the last dating from 2009) without changing anything - if not it gets worse, period!


The drivers are stable? Not at all.

They are often updated? No.

What software do you use most often? Sound Forge Pro 10

What you get lag? I have not looked. No apparent.

How many tracks you get to record / playback simultaneously? 8, when it works (it's 2-in, 8-out)


The installation is done it without problems? In 2 times. A bit odd.

Have you experienced any incompatibilities? Conflict, especially between different software or different sampling rates. For such a map is poor. Most cards do not have this problem supermarket.

Config and manual without problems


How long have you use it? 4 years and 3 years (I have two. Woe!)

What is so special that you like most and least? Plus: Firewire. The least: It regularly falls down, to overturn the studio sessions and so on.

Have you tried many other models before buying it? Before, yes.

How would you rate the quality / price? It's not worth € 10.

With experience, you do again this choice? Rather be cleaner toilets.

to avoid this card is not stable at all, if you want a product in this brand I recommend the range fasttrack usb 2 in the top in reliability! Ditto ditto

M-Audio Firewire 410
CHARACTERISTICS good on paper.


Big Pb compatibility with many chipset. Sometimes it works a while, then starts dcrocher. (Many examples and personal observations through the opinion)
Good if you're lucky (and thus one of the firewire chipset compatible)


No one - not pro - unusable (for me)


I do not really understand the success of this card that only works if you have much luck with computers! I ended up selling mine who had so many pos PB, despite several configs and a trip to SAV That of two colleagues did not give them more confidence, she can not recover for the live!

Given the mdiocrit its manufacture and the instability of its drivers, I do not see the Intrets of this interface, given the competition! By the way, I have a buddy aid to install the Pro 610-No more! as Pb, DS installation. So voila: audio-lovin ... Notice to the fans!

N not buy this card is good for first but after 3 months it is completely the west three times in different SAV 3pannes
once it works once its not working
After seeing it work and rapidly making its not working
the immedia is a horror

council does not like me
I know c estfacile to say but better buy a little more expensive and do not have, and c is the same for all m audio accessories

M c audio is a bit of Lidle's cheap but no taste



A leak


To avoid

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

M-Audio Firewire 410
I have 20 inch intel imac
logig pro 7.2
Final Cut Pro

Dpart to look entirely consistent in my home studio and need the price a year ago parraissait quite reasonable. At this time she also decline.


Reccurence problem of updated drivers.
Problem of logic in dcrochage permanent. Instabillit growing in final cut (to enjoy videos of the projects in progress)

About the ultimate contradictory instructions for use, and the little red paper cal well in the bottom of the box that informs the happy acqureur the possible non tolrence of 410 with other p riphriques firewire.

Video capture demand for more flexibility and ease of use, acquired a dde ==> and patatra dcrochage systmatique.

In the end sound card unusable.


The drivers are compltement unstable.


Just over a year. Warranty over.

Certainly I would do it at all this choice.

M-Audio Firewire 410
Hello all

Here is a year 1 / 2 I use the FW410, I had chosen for mobile use in seeking a good qualitprix.
I use it both for the creation of audio / midi in live (or live broadcast: music for pieces of thatre notemment)
The first interest I found that being the ability to spread thanks to the 8 analog outputs.

I use a PowerBook G4 with 1GB of ram, and especially Logic 7.


No problem with OSX installed and used, although the manual that came shining through its vagueness and its useless.


No problem with stability and drivers, no problems with the time of existence that is small enough to be forgotten.
J'apprcie also the possibility of routing of the interface that allows a direct monitoring Zro latency (very useful for acoustic instruments or voice).


The big default:
the reliability.

I tried three FW410 (with the same config and the same driver):
On the first MIDI was not working.
On the 2nd of the big problems of breath and plays, especially with the phantom power supply on.
On the 3rd, finally, all is well ... except ...
... Except that after a year's loose connection: bad contacts in the two headphone jacks, one input and outputs 1 / 2, 3 / 4 and 7 / 8!! Zt yet I took care of my stuff: I have a proof for Akai EWI for over 15 years and it still works.

It turns out that this card is not suitable for mobile use and should remain permanently connected in the same config, which is of course no!

In short, I deprecated this card. Too bad ...

M-Audio Firewire 410
This card-style at first, I direct hearts: compatibility protools/2pr-ampli mic / phantom power, ct the dream for my budget ...
"I use Windows XP Pro / Athlon XP 2400/512mo Ram 3GHZ
Nova-Mic / Keyboard USB Matre
Cubase Vst-32/SX 3/Sonar 4/Nuendo ...


Manual-help! The intallation easy, ok, but I was kind of changing my firewire port twice because of Bond gt 3x turn my pc it works! Gt really dfcu, j 'even wanted to cry, thank you!


No problem running this card latency trs well, but only when it works! Everything works ok, but only as it works? But for this price (329eur), you think we can afford to wait it is ok to walk? really ...?


-O I made a week, not feel like it burns in me, and then an internal card vo mieu!

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

M-Audio Firewire 410
I bought this interface for its low price, its eight outputs, flexible routing at the output and firewire CONNECTIVITY.
I use it to make music in Cubase SX, Reason [...], with the south.
I use it with an Asus A4G (laptop) P4 3.2 Ghz, 512MB RAM, a 60GB disk rather slow.
My sound card is itself connected to a Yamaha 01V level audio outputs (jack) and a Roland XP10 for MIDI.


I have not succeeded this time to make it work properly.
First I install the drivers M-Audio supplied me with the cd-rom,
it really did pas.J 'days have put the drivers to pass the latest version of the driver but it was even worse on windows 2000 pro it works fairly well (except for MIDI ), in short I will not m'taler the above I have already said enough in the forum.

Otherwise at the ASIO panel it is especially comprehensive and flexible routing
The level-controller in faade is a good idea but I've never used.


As I said above drivers are Carment zero from windows 2000 pro.
I use it with Cubase SX, Reason, Sound Forge and vst, I get around 8ms latency which is a good result when meme.Elle suporte pretty good numbers a little abuse of that I use with Cubase VST Apart from its sacada when my processor is 100% correct but that's normal.


It's been 7 months that I have and I'm on my trs deu investisement, what I most AIM is its 8 audio outputs and two inputs with preamp, what I 'have the lowest AIM driver.Je find it expensive to pay a card that does not work and if it was again, I do not buy it.

M-Audio Firewire 410
On paper, that's good use for several months live in ext, all on a medion laptop P4 2.8 Ghz, win Xp1 ultra ligth, mackie 8 out of 1604 + 2 convert out of da / ad, pb no latency with 4 live, MIDI sync ok, its trs correct (try with 60 Kw of D & B and Granite!)


Installation on the original port IEE1394 impossible ... asus, obligation to buy pcmcia firewire 400 6 pin.
For mdion, no pb till my fault sche ...
Then I visit the forums and surprise to see 40 + users with the same fault ...


The drivers are often updated on the site of m-audio, I used for 6 months acciduement pb ss and live with others, but it will burn for no reason (the 2PORT Firewire + card than the notebook) ...


So in conclusion, complete M-Audio! irrparable card good for any test case to have APRS, Pc, cables, cross on / off, power supply changes, formatting, drivers ... I take a hand Dirol ua101 me because USB2 parrait less fragile in a plug-unplug hot.
