Value For Money : Excellent
I bought it for my Yamaha SW 1000 complter before (but still INTERESTED for MIDI), it to improve the quality of audio recordings, and decrease the latency to control the VST i.

Config. Pentium 4 D, 3 GHz, 1 GB RAM, 250 GB SATA HD, Yamaha DX 11 Keyboard matre, console Yamaha MG 12 / 4


No problem installing, and I did not even Yamaha vir my card, as the manual advised ...

The two live cards with no problem, and has MIDI ports and more (Obviously you can not combine the two ASIO cards ...)

The manual is big but if you want to read to understand the Patchmix


The drivers seem stable and rarely renewed, the latency can drop below 8 ms; curiously must juggle the latency and buffer size, the two n'voluant apparently not all, unlike I knew before.

Some are bizarre VSTi, but they taient dj with Yamaha ... You can always install asio4all, who also works with the E-MU, which may give better rsultats the drivers of brands, both in stability and latency ...

I record a track once, 8 tracks with internal effects and / or card reading without problem (I have not tried more)


I for a month and a half, and I'm glad trs.

Goodies: Intgr effects, easy to use with the Patchmix, but yes it is RTFM (Read The Fucking Manual), and it is my opinion not a consumer card, the bottom of Creative range of cards, and then learns how to walk a console ...
Good quality audio.

Cons: cables derrire a bit short, the default PatchMix with dj effects (not practical).

Trs quality good value for money, I'm happy with my purchase.
