Value For Money : Excellent
The number of trips or pad 4, the quality of that pramps dfendent trs well and especially the possibility of qualiser, compress and / or limit the in and out ind pendently in hardware ...
- For what purpose?
dplacement studio and ... a joy in the studio with a good mixer!
dplacement in a small 8X8 multicore jack is Necessary for the entries pluguer analog outputs. because it is not possible in-house or soft.

- What is your config (motherboard / CPU / Ram / Hard ,...)?
Dell PC 2006 2GB RAM Centrino Duo, supports 30 tracks with STREO samplitude 8 without problem and some effects. I open at 8 or 9 vsti logic (but it died on PC software it difficult to say whether we can do better ... my processor is 50% maximum limit)

UTILIZATION

Problem-free installation

The manual is not really enough ... for use grows.

Cue mix software that gre card and stand alone mode (without a computer accessible from the faade) is a bit complicated to beginners ... Ralite it is in a logic all make classic mixer ... This could be simplified ncessaire but if we make a real working studio multitrack. 28 in and 30 out ... it's cool!
but two days of breaking even when head to realize that logic is finally old and it was me who was looking for the complicated o there had not ...

GETTING STARTED

The drivers are stable

and often put day

7 ms latency, I have not tried below ...

Stereo playback 30 tracks, can be more ...

for now I read 18 Stereo tracks while I recorded 4 Stros playing simultanment VSTI an open stand alone ... in 48 kHz 24bit

Easy to bte ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use the card for 2 months
+ small, the quips are pramps gain (attention because a clip as real gains in dB dB adjustable mixers) and volumes of (without noise) by accssibles menu faade easily stand alone mode.

small - I have apprcier gain and volume pramps under the fingers, the card can be supplied by external battery, it could almost serve as a mixer 4 documentary tracks .. . with a 4-track recorder for example and without computer.


there is also a rverbe but not gniale, a concert can help if you have nothing else.
outflows really EHJV

+ right: the qualiseur is really powerful and enjoyable work.
before I used an M-Audio 410 ... and not do it again ever!
Difference of the sound input and output is not comparable ...
The 410 m audio sounds really rough ct the traveler! and I'm nice.
I tried a motu traveler MK2 and waited to have money and when I heard MK3 version has!
meanwhile
I tried a 800 especially for the RME pramps, and the Difference is a story of its color and price for me ...

in the end there is more to the traveler on EHJV dynamic mics ... some o the same mixers of good quality roads are falling due to lack of gain, the traveler to trs trs dfend well for its price!

finally with the powerful DSP, the good pramps, the stand alone and external power supply is the best quality at prices ... we will see what we RME prpare but for now they are beaten!
I redo my choice without any problem
