    I was motivated by the memorable taking up 32MB on the computer. The effects. And SF2 soundfonts gestio banks.

    UTILIZATION

    Problem-free installation sound blaster and PC requires generic

    GETTING STARTED

    A latency with soundfonts was zero.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Before that I had a SB AWE32 PNP, and the size of a ram was extenxible 8MB with strips of an old mac that I was robbed. I did a lot of songs with but the effects were flat ....
    I arranged my songs with a mini keyboard yamaha pss780 that time.
    Today there are more good prices and above all quality irreprochale, breathless for example.

    Above all is a Platinium 5.1 that so I, I / O are relatively accurate (too bad I can not run the extension rack Linux)

In addition, I had the right of blockages Systmes constant in other versions of the OS, read the motherboard priori. Watch out VIA chipsets!!

    GETTING STARTED

    The drivers are "almost" stable, only the editor happens to me soundfonts notches blue ....
    I am constantly running Cubase (Cubase 1.13 for prcis and be more than enough for me) running without problem since I was in the beginners as computer music W3.1 with SB AWE 64.

    I do not multitrack, but the machine comes to read a lot of tracks simultaneously without flinching (single disk speed is the real limit).

    As for the effects, it is possible to apply the record, unlike what I read, you just know how to use software configuration effects;)
    The only criticism is that you can not replace a Reverb or Chorus by another effect (reverb and chorus effects are imposs 2)

    OVERALL OPINION

    was 5 years old I use this card. I tried one before that the ISIS ISIS but the problem arises standards of drivers and management MIDI is not as enjoyable, though may be better documented ... .

    gal budget, and under the same conditions, no doubt I would do the same choice, but I think the next will probably be more srieuse (RME ...) and the MIDI will be played in outer ...

    Music for use, the outputs of this card not generate a lot of digital noise, but the extension is quite cheap and guarantees against exchange by the quality. Otherwise the wavetable and MIDI interface is useful for troubleshooting and voila.

    I read dj 44100Hz 16bits Stereo 8-track with no effects in Cubase SX problem.
    This is the processor of the computer that does everything to play the audio ... The map does not give the qu'interprter
    to transform them into sound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Personally, I use this card for 3 years. I use a table to convert the signals numrique with good quality and the card is only read by the intermdiaire numrique give the SPDIF interface. J'enlve therefore the only problem posed by this card is that converters supermarket. I use it so simply as an interface between my table (Roland VM 3100), and my motherboard.
    Then, for audio processing, the processor calculating everything, so we can say that the map is only an interface for monitoring.
    In the same fawn, she gre transfers MIDI data between external and internal devices.
    so this card is perfect for a config as mine:
    microphone -> table -> spdif -> SBLive! -> PCI Bus -> PC -> PCI Bus -> SBLive! -> spdif -> table -> monitors
    midi keyboard -> SBLive! -> PCI Bus -> PC (Cubase, Reason)

    For the price (50), I find no bad at all. I personally do not need something better if I did not make multitrack.

    Is a map sense, but the manufacturers we tend to forget that Microsoft is not alone in the market and at one time or another I hope they will break mouth.

    All manufacturers who forget and do not include UNIX and Linux systems will run with.

    It is time for a change and they put a little work.

    Is my first map and I started as a home studio but even if I can compare I find really good quality at the comptatibilité effects and the possibility of setting up has 32 mb of sounds.

    Features MIDI are also quite limited (no support portamento example, which makes it rather difficult to track winds or strings legato).

    If you do audio, Live includes effects of owls (36000 reverb and chorus, and less conventional things like a ring modulator and frequency converter), the problem is 1) the effects on reproduction but not at the record 2) the effects do not work.

    Despite interesting features (its 3D environment mapping), the party connection leaves something to be desired ... The Line "and" micro "are mini-jack, hello losses!
    For digital audio I recommend the Isis guillemot, exellent value for money
