My choice was motivated by the t price, Asio 2.0 drivers and the number of out of this card.
I used Cubase SX (buying the card in December 2002) and the sound card to the motherboard Intgr know the results of latency too levs (impossible to use a VSTi)
My config consists
P4A 1.6Ghz 512 MB SDRAM PC 133
For the record I used a micro multimedia regarding the voice.
And as the Altec Lansing speakers 2.5.1 (System 5.1) + 1 headphone
Thus, the 8 outputs taient fully exploited.
While the installation is easy by res against the manual is in English.
Regarding drivers are regularly updated and more efficient.
Besides the addition of 2.0 DirectWIRE lacarte brought to the functionality of rerouting the signal interresting.
The software most used tbr have /> 1 & 2 Cubase SX, Nuendo 2.0, 3 Live, Reason 2 & 2.5, Melodyne 2.
in general I used the card with a buffer of 128 samples for a latency of 5ms. and when I did not use bcp Cpu I was down for a 64 sample latency of 2 ms.
This card has only two entries you can save silmultanment.
It has been almost two years since I used the. What I like about this card -----> 96 dB dynamics, stability driver Asio 2.0, 8 output to make Surround, price and quality of recording in the between realis online.
What I do not like her --------> frquence fixed 48Khz
With the new products today I would take the EMU without hsiter 0404.
Car has the era of my purchase was worth it 106 Surcouf. She was one of the few cards that have not dear ASIO 2.0
for beginners in the c audionumrique a good product.
