Echo Gina 24
Reputable brand for the conversion (external) a / d / a
utlise for taking analog (mic preamp TubePre instruments) on Nuendo 2, mackie 1202 trips
CM ASUS P4PE, P4 2.4 GB, 1GB RAM, HDD USB2 2x80 + 120


RAS to install and config on Win XP
simple, simple, efficient, no gadget
configure with 'PureWave', which made her "kitchen" with the internal card, and replaces WDM Wave Driver for Microsoft (News)
ASIO 2 ok


No driver pb

used with Nuendo 2, relatively low latency, no ESG
(Not test I / O numriques)


Used for 4 months
PIV / Nuendo 2 / Win XP / gina 24: a really good running config to use the PC as a recorder multpistes ADDA (even if "borderline" between a stro; otherwise have to go see his girlfriend Layla)

the level it has a real potato in addition to being 'clean' in input and output

report qualitprix excellent (Thomann)

- What technical specifications motivated your choice?
I bought this card because they were the number of outputs (8) and of (2) that I fully suffisat! There was also a knob for the headphone volume rgler, it seems con c but important! I pay 415, c'tait my budget for a pro card more than my Audigy Platinum EX. ECHO has a good reputable in the middle, so I sduire Permit.

- For what purpose?
No bcp miking, I made up my compound with a Fruity REMOTE 25

- What is your config (motherboard / CPU / RAM / Disk ,...)?
ATHLON XP 2100 +
512 MB DDR
180 GB IDE 7200 trs / min

- Which instruments or Systmes (console, prampli, DTD ...) you use it and how connections? ...
I plugged my TR8 it, no problem


It is the hurt that bt, the installation is great, the rack and card are properly made. I reboot and it's damn, it gets stuck blocking ca ca plant, it's awful I'm going crazy! I contact technical support via the website of Echo, I receive a rponse the next day, not trs kind elsewhere. I think it's lightweight. Finally it is a mail. Good move, it tells me it probably comes from the chipset I (SIS mmorisez the 745 if you buy a GINA). They offer me is to flash my bios and chipset, or to change the PCI card is to change drivers ... none of this has so I march DCID to change my motherboard a card with a KT400 chipset ... I still ask achter tested before in a computer store (ASV Computing AVIGNON) It ​​all works the first time so I bought. mnt .. and I am in the 7th Heaven but I'm going to put a nasty note because I found ca rev limit for the price of the cards to have so much trouble.


- The drivers are super stable, I use the ASIO driver is a rgal
- Last Updated in May, nickel ...
- FruityLoops is the software that I use the +
- Latency I use is 23 ms but I can easily reach 1 ms


Well I'm happy mnt, it's going to make more than one month I (2 weeks Relese use) and I have no problem with ... hope it lasts!

Technical specifications see data sheet
config: Abit KG7/Athlon 1400/768Mo DDR2100 / DD 40Go/Windows XP
Use with guitar Line6 PodPro branch of branch on the map or SPDIF coaxial jack 6.35


Installation very easy. Not force. Immmdiatement recognized by Windows XP
no incompatibility until
Easy Setup console as clear
Manuel clearly, fairly well done.


Drivers stable
latest version available in late May so OK
use with Cubase 5 VST32
Latency of 4 ms
yet the bottom operates in terms of management of many tracks


My opinion could possibly be changed because I use it only for a little over a week
No breath, trs good converters (apparently now the best in the market in this price range), solid box (and best) use simple srieux brand
before I only possdait SB live 5.1 that I always use but also for multimedia
sr and is it not the same thing!
report qualitprix trs good. It is true that it's a bit expensive but if you want to arrter soup and death hack up trpasser ...
This is a non DEFINITIONS opinion, but I know why I felt that I will not regret it
Rating 9 / 10 because there are better, but even more expensive ... (normal)
PS: some reviews for this card yet MRIT attention especially since the few favorable reviews are always trs.

What technical specifications motivated your choice?

24/96, short latency (3ms) (for VST instruments), 8 analog outputs (for routing mix on my desk because the mouse is not my thing) and an optical I / O to connect and my dat converters known to be excellent

For what purpose?

I am the tekno (on average) so I did not need much of an analog synth to record except occasionally, for I wanted a lot of cons out in order to mix on my table and quietly not the mouse that also involves good converters because I have a AD / DA conversion and more.

What is your config (motherboard / CPU / RAM / Disk ,...)?

P3 933, CM: ASUS TUCL 2, 512RAM, 1HD 1HD 40GB + 4.3GB system audio, Win XP

Which instruments or Systmes (console, prampli, DTD ...) you use it and how connections?

I plug a synth on it from time to tyemps and all output to a table mix all this in my dat analog + optical

** I put 8 / 10 because the latency is good if you are on Win 2000 or XP if not making hello head of buffer in cubase to get the best to 45ms!
Win2000 and XP, but I was never possible in bp for the audio ...


Installation is no problem it?

c'tait a little violent but because I DCID at the same time to take in my mnage Systm (change of bone, new software, new DD) difficult to judge.
in any case with Win XP install alone she as planned in the manual

- Have you encountered any incompatibilities?


- The configuration gnrale is easy?

see above

- The manual is clear and sufficient?

Open once before and never since install because everything happens automatically!


The drivers are stable?
- Are they often put day?
- What software do you use most often?
- What you get lag?
- How many runs you get record / play simultanment? ...

Compared the isis is the day and night
not a crash, the drivers day set, a latency of 3ms, I never reached the limit in audio ....


How long have you use it?
- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
- How do you report qualitprix?
- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...

1 month then I would possibly be on my trial if I have a problem but a priori seem to be the srieux

it is on it's quite expensive (approx 500 euros) but compared to a 2000FF isis (I know ... I block) or the era I had bought and given it much !
numrique revolves around a studio sound card so do not hsiter!

Echo Gina 24
Rack-external: 2 Entries Jack6.5 + 8 6.5 + SPDIF output jack In / Out RCA + optical and headphone jack with volume control
-No problem with Win98
-Cool Edit Pro (simplified version)


-installation without any problems (10 minutes ...)
-Once the connection of input / output ranges: no problem
Manuel clear enough and sufficient


-Just a few little bugs in the software of origin but nothing really bad (small display failures). Probably fixed in the version on the web
Config: P4 1.5GHz, 256M RAM, 2 hard drives (20G + 40G)
Cubase 5.0-
-Latency: for now I have no midi interface, so I leave latency énarme (cubase supports CRT and listen directly to record the entry of my card) ... so for now no opinion
-For now with 20 with 24-bit 44.1kHz audio tracks and effects I use only around 30% of the CPU-


I use it for 2 months
External rack-very sturdy ... with knob to the headphone .. so, if that counts ...
Good-rendered dynamically, no breath!
-Very easy to use
"A little expensive ... but the quality at a price ...
On-again, I would buy the same ...
