Full details of the sound card available on the manufacturer's website
Used with a quad-Pc, 4x2.3 GHz, 4 GB RAM
2 FireWire card with Texas Instruments chipsets


I use it for my records homs studio with Cubase 5 (previously with a less powerful PC and Cubase SX3). I get a latency of about 4ms.

To me the drivers are stable, I fished regularly for updates on the manufacturer's website. Some people do not agree with me, maybe some incompatibilities with some hardware.

This is not pro gear, we agree, but I could record personal projects of exceptional quality with the Firebox.


Trouble-free installation.
Personally I had some trouble detection until I change my FireWire card, I was advised to take a Texas Instrument chipset with 2 and indeed, never had any problems.


I have 5 years, I am very happy.
I have not tried other, I wanted a card connected external FireWire and a phantom in order to register with a condenser microphone.
Well maintained, I have never had any problems with the knobs and input / output ... in short yes, I would do this choice, I have what I wanted to record tracks one by one, very correct quality and cheap.
