lucbessou's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" disappointing"

E-MU 0404
J 'had to buy the card e-mu 1212 with daughter card
m it has a flaming motherboard
I bought cranking warranty
and new flames me another computer
as I 'd synth emulator x I say that I go buy the 0404 coup
at least this one does not cause me no trouble at least in this area


on XP drivers are not stable I re-installed every week
I have beautiful go to the website and take the new drivers no improvement
recording a score of tracks simultaneously the sound quickly becomes fouillit, not even by a precision mix with separate outputs in the mix patch
only the emulator vx and x have an interest with its controllers foisons same sound output really remember synths of the time


this card comes into conflict with the rest on equipment that is probably because it takes many IRQ
mix patch with DSP are the only strong point of the machine


I have over 3 years the value for money is interesting but if it again I will not be me price on the head with this product it is better not that I calculated the time I lose by re-installing the drivers still want this morning ...
I see with the other manufacturer that is easier

- Motiv for between Stereo (2 single G and D in fact) 24-bit 44-96Khz
- Model home with me (so keyboard instrumentals VST and bass), guitarist and singer
- Config P4 2.8Ghz 512MB DDR333, 120GB HDD and 2 1 of 160
- Table top synth mix with branch noon, micro and low on the analog inputs of the card - guitar prampli religious spdif in the card and connected to MIDI synth


- Installation without pb
- No incompatibilitbr /> - Configuration gnrale not bad if you take the trouble to read the doc
- The manual is good but a little amber is a


- Drivers relatively stable but with some vst effects on Nuendo: see crack crash Nuendo
- Ds updates on the day of purchase ... the spdif is now up to 192Khz! pfff too much for me
- I use: Nuendo 3 and a bunch of VST instruments and effects
- Latency 9.97 ms what happiness! below there are cracks in Nuendo
- 4 audio + midi (2-track analog 2-track spdif pm)


- I use it for one month soon
- What I like is:
-You can use effects in real time
- To record all my tracks at the same time
- The use of zero-latency VST
- Can save my config easily depending on the project
- To have full effect not too bad thanks to intgrbr dsp /> - Report qualitprix: unbeatable

After 3 years the board has made me ........ its acute trs continues despite Reinstalling (drivers, application, change windows ...), pci port.
To use the management application of the card to zero rvle possible. On the other hand, the launching of the said application at boot and the pc wont fast ultra long ... when you turn on the pc for anything other than make mao!

In the era of purchase at j'tais tightened budget, c'tait alone in this price range. Today I hte to forget!

Value for money

Pc dual core 3.4 GHz 1 GB of memory dedicated solely to music

Arturia Moog Modular with the FM and 7 of native Cubase LE comes with the card


Installation delicate hours of research on forums only to find that I was not the only one with a gallery with this product.

The manual is very comprehensive, an encyclopedia: you get lost!


Drivers unstable: as soon as you install new software, the PatchMix plant, we do not know why

latency very good indeed, but after several months of testing various galleys and

significant number of tracks


After a year of use, it happened again to set:
Rage, I disassembled and restored to its board: I can not even give it to a friend, I'm afraid to get angry with him

General Notice: it is a cheap product, I now know why.
Ideal for lovers of research in the forums: I was looking for a sound card, not a participation in "Wanted!"
I have put in place my old audigy: balance, latency, etc. are also sounds good, it works the first time and is super stable.

I can not redeem more than many professional creative products of course ...
