    What caractristques tech. have motivated your choice?

    -First, It is available in 8 audios among XLR and 1/4 and its 8 outputs 1/4.
    -Then Is that it plugs into Firewire, so it's more reliable than the usb!
    -The Eight audio outputs can be assign virtual instruments.
    -The Possibility to be connected in two sets!
    -capacit to record 192 kHz


    Which instruments and systems (console, prampli, DTD ...) you use it and how connections?

    I use it with a mixer Behringer eurorack 12 entries. To which the instruments, I use with electric guitar, a keyboard Technic, mixer DJ SCS.1m a Korg synthesizer Er mkii and m-audio microphones.

    Which instruments and systems (console, prampli, DTD ...) you use it and how connections?

    I use it with a mixer Behringer eurorack 12 entries. To which the instruments, I use with electric guitar, a keyboard Technic, mixer DJ SCS.1m a Korg synthesizer Er mkii and m-audio microphones.

    to which the connection I almost only uses XLR cable. I love the fact that he provided a cable panouis.


    For what purpose?

    I record in the studio and the fact that it is not too big will allow me to record directly from the musicians! I record guitarists and bassists, pianists, a singer / vocalist,

    I also use it as a card for his DJing, the 8 audio outputs rvlent be very useful.
    Especially since it has its quality compar to map outputs made for DJing who has only RCA output! That having output and input XLR or 1/4 are so expensive, often on top of $ 1,000,00.

    When I connect Mixe all outputs to input my Behringer Mixer and-controlling EQs is better than a dj program.


    What is your config (Map mother / CPU / Ram / Hard, ...)?

    I use it with a vista laptop and macbook pro 2011 0SX; 6.8.6




    USE

    Are the drivers stable? Are they often put day

    The drivers are very stable, they have never permit me tomb.
    They are put - days from time to time ... I remember the last time have!



    What software do you use most often?

    Pro Tools 10
    Traktor
    Ableton Live
    FL Studio 9
    Kontakt

    if sometimes I use

    Adobe Audition
    Adobe Soundbooth
    Torq 2.0


    What you get lag?

    I never touch because it never made me default!


    How many tracks you record / play simultaneously?

    I never try more than 8 tracks.




    IMPLEMENTATION

    The installation being done without problem?
    Installation is very simple and requires no Gnis be a computer!

    Is Gnrale configuration is easy?

    yes enough for a basic registration. Otherwise there has read the manual (a lil flies only) to understand all the functionalities of the DSP Mixer if we are not very familiar with the sound hardware.
    By the way, the suit mixer (blender) DSP is so useful once you understand how it works!


    Have you encountered the incompatibilits?

    yes with Sony Sound Forge to record if not for reading that's ok.


    Is the manual clear and sufficient?

    yes the manual is very well and explains very well the operation of the machine.


    One bmole! Is having to have the computer shut down or in sleep to be able to connect but otherwise everything is great!


    NOTICE GLOBAL

    How long have you use it?

    I've had a year bientt and she never made me default.
    physically or computationally!

    Contrarement and many other advice I have read, none of my knobs did ramolit or breakage.


    Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

    but not the sound engineers that I know and sound technician me about the l. So I have to rent a one week then I realized c'tait excelling for the offered price.

    What is the particular feature you like best and least?

    The +:
    My much: his Standalone mode.

    -Its Among eight combined XLR to 1/4 among.
    -His DSP suit mixer.
    -Its Reliability.
    -The 8 1/4 TRS outputs
    -The Cable included with Panous. (Midi i / o, WC i / o, SPDIF)
    -2 X I / O ADAT (for plugging another audio interface of its kind Profire 2626)

    The -:

    - It is the duty to have the computer shut down or in sleep to be able to connect the computer.

    How do you report qualitprix?

    Excelling, after having store for a year of sound cards on the web and on the forums is the one that was giving the best performance for its price and its characteristics.

    I told myself that even if it's more than looking cards with only 2 or 3 among audio, it's worth it because it will never plant if very rarely! (Unless one seeks to plant obviously!)

    With experience, you do again this choice?

    Yes very definitely! Btw I'll buy a SECOND.

    The firewire connection works well if you do not forget to take an interface with a TI chipset (Texas Instruments) card. The number of inputs / outputs, inputs and optical digital outputs and ease of use all work very well (I use them all at the same time). I will also probably buy 2nd 2626 interface for coupling to the first.

    UTILIZATION

    No problems or beug since this purchase.
    Very low latency. No need to update
    I read 6 stereo tracks simultaneously

    GETTING STARTED

    No setup problem (windows vista 32 or 64). The manual can be improved but it is doing very well anyway without spending hours

    Outside it is quite easy to change a Firewire card on a turn, but if it is a laptop, it's better to have mass (which can not be verified until after purchase)
    So if you want to run with a laptop ... Better mac (according to the M-Audio technical support at the time.

    GETTING STARTED

    RAS at this level, it has always worked well

    OVERALL OPINION

    4 years

    I tested the RME Fireface, better, but too expensive for my budget

    For those who find the light preamps, simply multiply the budget by 2 or 3, that's all (we do not make the prod with a sound card 500 €!). For live or home studio use, this is perfect.

    Goodies:
    number of i / o,
    the rack format (1 U 19 ")
    low latency, can breath, if you know how to use preamps reasonably.
    robustness (should the racket)
    16 adat inputs outputs

    apparent fragility of the connection of the power supply (one pin 3 and the transformer inside would have been more suited to the "rack" size, ditto for the firewire port ... Requests to be careful

    stable drivers windows 7 and snow leopard and lion macOS.
    tested on ProTools MP8, 9, 10 (pc and mac) logic pro studio one, cubase, ableton, FL, perfectly supported by any software. PT10 main use on win 7
    drivers have not been updated for a while but no problems or stall declare

    I use it at home for combo keyboard / bass / guitar / vocals and I took with a small macbook when I have a record out. the card is short enough, connect the cables to the bottom of a 2U rack is not necessarily obvious. the advantage is that the multicore 8 jack 5m for outputs back into the rack and there is no need to unplug it every time ...) the downside is that if you do not want to kill the connector power must be removed each time.

    converters for year / na and the preamp I have unfortunately not large enough experience to judge their quality. however, nothing to say about the hardware that I used (senn e840, sm58, this kind of microphones). Noted that even push the preamp thoroughly I had no background on prodipe TT1. the sudden a very good signal to noise ratio.
    I humble opinion that for newcomers like me in the world of home studio is widely level. I ordered a blue reactor, I éditerais this notice if I have something to point out (and make them slightly).

    on the headphone jacks on the front, both have an independent volume in addition to master volume. The Master affecting the other two, although be careful not to put all the knobs to 11/10 if it is the death of the headphone line. Unless you have 600 ohms impedance and again.

    overall quality of the catch is very good, you will not unplug something accidentally (except be little food! but it is not important we agree)

    he would miss one or two frontal microphone socket, but lack of space in a small home studio config (keyboard / micro) need to plug mic cable behind is a real ordeal

    all these are details, but I do not recall having seen talking. after 2 years of use I think they have their interest (where one presonus FireStudio has entered the façade and integrated power supply)
    9/10 -1 for the power supply connector. (Yes again) -1 for the lack of front grip

    GETTING STARTED

    installed smoothly, like a device all more or less plug and play the market.
    interface is sufficiently clear and complete. Routing individual tracks rather than stereo would have been welcome, but everything remains flexible.
    the card supports very long hours of use, to be turned on / off without necessarily precautions and there is no need to reboot the machine to connect / disconnect (off course!)
    9/10 -1 for routing stereo

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 2 years I hesitated with 8 tracks equivalents at motu, focusrite, presonus. but wanting to use protools (MP8 at the time) I finally fall for that one.
    Note that Windows supports very well the shift controller intégré/profire2626 when his turn on / off this one. and nothing prevents you from using your combo tube microphone / preamp 5000th to talk to your buddies on teamspeak.

    What is so special that you like most and least?
    + The overall quality of the map
    + Two headphone jacks independent facades
    + Two instruments made facades in

    -The external power supply connector and everything rots septentrionnel
    -No power limiter on the headphone jacks.
    -No microphone jack on the front

    I would do this choice?
    be little. I am curious and playful, I would try another manufacturer happy the day I would need 16 inputs via adat! and the power supply .. seriously!

    Why this choice: 8 analog inputs, two independent headphone output.

    UTILIZATION

    The drives are very stable, no drop. I use it with ableton live 8, and I have extremely low latency (she has never embarrassed!)

    GETTING STARTED

    A little trouble with the internal router at first, but once you read the manual, it works alone!

    OVERALL OPINION

    This sound card is perfect for me for the use I made (I save my hardware synths, tract, or guitars)

    What instruments or systems (console, preamp, DtDs ...) the use and how you connect?

    I use it with a Behringer Eurorack mixer 12 inputs. To which the instruments, I use it with an electric guitar, keyboard Technic SCS.1m dj mixer, a Korg synthesizer Er mkii microphones and m-audio.

    to which is the connectivity;

    I use almost exclusively of XLR cable. I love the fact that he provided a cable fulfilled.
    I use for output of a snake cable 8 1/4 TRS or TS (I have both) for connected to my Behringer Eurorack Mixer.


    For what purpose?

    I'm recording in the studio and the fact that it is not too big I can go directly from recording musicians! I recorded of the guitarists, bassists of, pianist, singer / vocalist,

    I also use it as a soundcard for DJing, then the 8 audio outputs are proving to be very helpful.
    Especially because it has quality output compared to the sound card made for DJing that only has RCA output! The one with the output and input XLR or 1/4 are so expensive, often on top of $ 1,000.00.

    When I connect Mix all outputs to input my Behringer mixer EQs and control is better than a dj program.


    What is your config (Motherboard / CPU / RAM / Disk, ...)?

    I use a laptop with vista and a macbook pro 0sx 2011; 6.8.6

    UTILIZATION

    The drivers are stable? They are often updated

    The drivers are very stable I have ever dropped.
    They are made-to-day from time to time ... I could remember the last time!



    What software do you use most often?

    Pro Tools 10
    Traktor
    Ableton Live
    FL Studio 9
    Kontakt

    sometimes if I use

    Adobe Audition
    Adobe Soundbooth
    Torq 2.0


    What you get lag?

    I've never touched it because I have never failed!


    How many tracks do you manage to record / play simultaneously?

    I never try more than 8 tracks.

    GETTING STARTED

    The installation is done it without problem?
    Installation is very simple and not seek to be a computer geniuses!

    The general configuration is easy?

    yes enough for a basic registration. Otherwise there has read the manual (a little flies only) to understand all the functionality of the DSP mixer if you're not familiar with sound equipment.
    Incidentally, the mixer (mixer) DSP is so useful once you understand how it works!


    Have you encountered any incompatibilities?

    yes with Sony Sound Forge to record if not for reading it is ok.


    The manual is clear and sufficient?

    yes the manual is very good and explains very well the operation of the machine.


    Bémole one! Is having to close or have the computer on standby and to connect it but otherwise everything is great!

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long you use it?

    I've had a year soon and it never fails me.
    either physically or computationally!

    And unlike many other reviews I read, none of my knobs did ramolit or broken.


    Did you tried many other models before buying it?

    but not all the sound engineers I know and sound technician offered me this one. So I rent one for a week then I realized it was excellant for the price offered.

    What is so special that you love the most, least?
    The +:
    my much: its standalone operation.

    His eight-XLR inputs combined with 1/4.
    The DSP-Mixer.
    Reliability-Its.
    The 8-outputs 1/4 TRS
    -The cable included with bloom. (Midi i / o, WC i / o, SPDif)
    -2 X I / O ADAT (for plugging in another audio interface like the Profire 2626)

    The -:

    - It's duty to have the computer shut down or on standby and to connect it to the computer.

    How would you rate the quality / price?

    Excelling, having shopped for a year sound cards on the web and on forums is that which was given the best performance for its price and features.

    I am told that even if it's more than looking cards with only 2 or 3 audio inputs, it's worth it because it does not crash very rarely if ever! (At least we are trying to do obviously planted!)

    With experience, you do again this choice?

    Yes definitely! I'll buy a second aillor.

    Usage: making sounds in the studio.

    Buying a portable station complte April 2, 2008:

    - ProFire 2626
    - Pro Tools 7
    - Micro kit Salmieri
    - Accessories (cables, feet, MIDI controllers, etc.).

    UTILIZATION

    Piloting of the card by the computer without problem.
    Internet connection required for loading drivers on 10.5.2

    GETTING STARTED

    BIG PROBLEMS ON THIS ISSUE:

    * Not fault M-Audio

    * No software is used to control the card multitrack recording on Mac OS 10.5.2 (except soft Ableton Live, but hey ... the FULL version, recording the multi ncessaire is 299 euros - good joke !).

    The card is currently not functional multitrack with a soft quality when we had the awkwardness of the OS updater or buy a brand new computer.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The 2626 card is not functional so far in multitrack recording with a soft quality of work on a config. Apple update (April 2008).

    ...

    (Erratum: nikel it works with Garage Band, the most advanced audio software on a Mac (!) Is the only laxative I've found to dbloquer the situation).

    ...

    The map looks really great (the home tests are convincing) 8 pramp octane, cheap, not boring: a future standard.
    ... Just some problem of arrhythmia between Digidesign and Apple.
