" Mackie Onyx Satellite"

I bought this card there for many years, in 2007 I think. At the student time, my choice was motivated by price and brand. Having 4 analog outputs also allowed me to make quadraphonic. I had a Mac Titanium and several instruments (guitars, bass, synth mainly ...)

UTILIZATION

I used Logic and Cubase, and I was starting to look into Live. Level latency was not exceptional but it held the road for the live, on condition of not overloading the number of tracks and plugins. When I bought my Macbook Pro, it was much better. I seem to remember that I could rotate with 5 or 6 tracks on live with a handful of plugins, but it seems to me that the latency was between 20 and 40 ms. I installed......

When I bought my Macbook Pro, it was much better. I seem to remember that I could rotate with 5 or 6 tracks on live with a handful of plugins, but it seems to me that the latency was between 20 and 40 ms. I installed the software that came with, but I've never used because none of my effects and instruments were recognized (whether vst, the AU or other)

GETTING STARTED

Installation on Mac was easy and it was as simple to configure the card on all software. I never looked at the manual ...

OVERALL OPINION

After few years (around 4 or 5) the outputs of the base (since this model is composed of two separate blocks: the base, which allows you to add inserts and 4 separate outputs and a talk back ... and "satellite", which comes off and allows a more mobile use, with only two input jack / XLR + 48v jack and two outputs, and two headphone outputs), the outputs of the base, therefore, began to drop one after the other. Anyway I had to go on a more sophisticated system with more input / output and better preamp.
I kept the TV, I always use at home to listen to music and for everyday use. However, power and quality level, we must admit that since I bought my card Motu (ultralite mk3), there is no photo I happen to work with now 20 track packed with effects on Live with a sound that is undeniably higher. But this is not the same price!
I have since tested many cards, but you can not really compare the incomparable. This small Mackie was a very good price / quality ratio for a first small map. And the satellite was a good idea (proof is, I would never have repaired this machine if it had been made of a block, and finally, even broken, I can still use the satellite without repairing the base!)
Today I do not have that choice because my equipment and my practice have evolved. I no longer buy hardware means, I expect to have the opportunity to buy the best quality. But I would advise a young musician unfortunate, as the price at which it was sold (I think it is no longer sold? ...). Other more efficient model are however at very competitive prices.

I bought this card for the next 2 in 1 machine
I do not use little portable way, but many home studio (especially the dock).
She is on a AMD64 3800 brachée (2048 RAM) with a Belkin FW card.

I connect over an SM 57 microphones and a guitar Ibanez EDR470.

UTILIZATION

Installation is very easy ...

Auncune incompatibility (even on a machine with Windows SP1)

The configuration is no one bit simpler (just a setting franquence and buffer)

However the manual is in English only (too bad for those who know nothing).

I note 9 for the manual still available in french.

GETTING STARTED

The drivers are perfectly stable (always the case in Windwos XP PRO SP2 and SP1)

I use it with SoundForge, Nuendo with no problems.
I get an easy 5 ms latency. (256) ... but it is still down slightly below (64)

OVERALL OPINION

I use it now for 1 week

Most:

Concept, look, solid design, connectivity, preamps, dock ...

The -:

No I / O spdif, no I / O noon slight breath, for nitre imprecise, dock does not work independently ...

I have used many, many audio interface model, and I consider that this interface is up there really a mid-range very interesting with a truly innovative concept.

I bought it on Ebay for 98 euros (new), so I do not find the recess price / quality ratio than PERFECT.

With experience, I would do without this choice problem.
