The soundcard features stereo 1/4 jacks for in and out (L/R in, L/R out), S/PDIF in and out, ADAT, and Midi in and out. I am currently only using the 1/4 jacks (ins for my turntable, outs for my speakers) and they're great. For a pci soundcard, it's got everything.

Price paid

$135 USD


I haven't even begin to tap the full potential of this soundcard but the software/driver that it comes with (patchmix dsp) seeems a little bit complicated, but that may be just because I am a beginer. The asio routing seems to be confusing to me. Installation was easy, plug in both cards into pci slots and connect the ribbon cable between the two. as of recording through the 1/4 jacks, i didn't have to set up anything. just plug in the 1/4 cables and hit record in cubase.


I bought it used, and it seemed as good as new.


This is the only sound card i have expiereince with but for me, i am satisfied with it. I am sure there are better soundquality sound cards out there but for the price i got it for (and the original price), you can't beat it.

I personally love this sound card. in my opinion its the best pci sound card (besides the higher models of the emu soundcards). But for the price, this is a great sound card. In use with a mixer and a midi interface, you can hook up anything to your computer.
