Used in the studio with a laptop and a DM2000v2 M6NE ASUS Intel Centrino 2Ghtz to 1 GB of RAM

UTILIZATION

Trouble free installation, the software is clear and simple

GETTING STARTED

It has been two months since I, an update for drivers
walk with my cubase SX2 4ms latency and 32-track Recording

OVERALL OPINION

Little external sound card with the same input / output to ADAT.
it works well, no clicks digital, no loss of sync

UTILIZATION

Simple Installation, no incompatibility has been reported. The config is done via a dashboard interface and dedicated it to is a childish simplicity. Manuel clear.

Windows XP Users
do not forget the update windows update unleashing the firewire port (885,222 kb) for best performance with any digital audio interface firewire port on

EDIT
a little gallery of not being able to change the sampling rate by AS or cubase audio software ... It caused me great loss of time (when cubase refuses to do, etc.) decrease in notes

GETTING STARTED

Drivers stable dja Updated so that the interface has just been released. Used with cubase sx I get an 4 ms latency without stall 32 tracks for recording. I have not tried more (like 32 recording 32 read) but I think we can do aisment by increasing the buffer, which puts me in a 7 ms latency, always very acceptable.

I just this shade gives, do not forget that you need to add the latency of its console-output to that of the digital interface.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had a week I pass a whole evenings to the test with more and more tracks for recording and playback, not any stall or crash. It is the only external interface (very important when working on laptop) has to offer as much out of adat, therefore no other model tested tural and no competition now. The ratio quality price is pale, cheaper than my FA101 with 4 times of (even if not for the same purpose) is at the same time comprhensible as give come into direct numrique, the cost element in expensive audio interfaces namely pramp and converters need not be present on this map.
I would not do because no other choice concurrency, and produced really excellent in terms of performance offered.

EDIT: Now that I had the opportunity to listen to other things, I find that the converter output is blah, as purely subjective opinion eh ... Good for the price you can not really be blamed.

Produced by some because it addresses a "public" semi professional bump in a format fully numrique therefore external converters or console numrique good range.

UTILIZATION

Rel worry-free installation if not at the time of my passage on Lopard (Mac OSX 10.5), a lot of problem reading the clock numrique (word clock). The map is difficult to synchronize the clock trs console via the ADAT or BNC port. The Mac had several amme Kernel Panic (equivalent to a blue screen on a PC), which is restarting the Barbarian ...
In addition, the card disappears (over her), another ds pripherique uses the firewire bus on the Mac (as in 400 800), in my case I ds turns on my hard external hard drive connected to Mac via firewire 800 (which in Thor is totally indpendant). This concern existed when dja j'tais under Tiger (Mac OS X 10.4).

So should srieusement a review for M Audio.

GETTING STARTED

Once stabilized in the schmilblick clock, no problem, easy to use and if only one works in 24 bits, the dynamics are well respected plutt.
Cubase was ACCS all inputs or 36 outputs in total.

OVERALL OPINION

It's been about a year I use it, but three months of galre of the strong instability in Lopard trs. I think change to a RME Fireface 800 is not the same price that's right ...
However, for users other than Mac OS X 10.5 is a super card trs well for those who think at all numrique.

So a good product when demand even be improved.
