Echo MiaMIDI
see below

UTILIZATION

stable drivers, latency of 7 ms gently with cubase under win sp3, config 2.6 ghz athlon duo and 3GB of ram

GETTING STARTED

installation without worries, no incompatibility

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for almost a week before I had a MAUDIO 2496 (not bad) and an RME HDSP 9632 (blah).
purchased from Cygnus in perfect condition, it is much more transparent than my ex rm, yet convertos are apparently less good!
there is no noise (unlike rm)
the only thing I blame him is the lack of headphone
I highly recommend!

I wanted a very simple sound card with good input, one DSP manager in the best latency and a MIDI connector.
Independent mono inputs in 6.5 minutes

I am of computer music on a PIV with 3 GB of RAM. DD 3 = 1 system, for a sample of vst instruments (EZDrummer ...), one for sound files.

Please note that this card is not a multimedia sound card. it can confuse some not to find out classic line. But it remains very stable even in the presence of the sound card on the motherboard.

I make music only in sound recording studio (not live). Taken on its small preamp lamp connected to a small mixer itself connected to the analog inputs of the sound card.
The analog outputs are connected to a headset samson péampli with 4 outputs. The digital output is connected to the Edirol MA-10D monitors.
The MIDI input is connected to a master keyboard and digital piano
Recording direct-to-disk guitars, bass and vocals.
Programming as addictive drums vst instrument, EZDrummer, SampleTank
insert vst effect like guitar rig.
I turn on XP pro.

UTILIZATION

The drivers are stable although I sometimes (not often) to have freezes in session. Ever taken of her but in settings plug-ins. Hard to say if the card or plug that plant. But given the state of the console of the card, I would go for the card. But it is sufficient simply to save the session and restart cubase for the problem continues. AND it's still rare (5-6 times a year)
Echo does not work anymore on drivers for XP (not since 2007,
V 7.3) but it is developing for Vista and Seven.

Softs: Cubase SX3, wavelab 5, T-racks 3 and sometimes audition 3, B4, Ozone 4

I come often to have 6 tracks + 2 stereo or 3 VST instrument (drums + piano). For mixing, it is sometimes necessary to balance the buffer to avoid breaks. For the record, beyond the 3-track stereo with 4 insert guitar rig, you often freeze to keep track read margin on taking DTD.
Blame it on the card or my config etram obsolete with PIV in a DDR?
I can easily work with 7 ms latency, which is more than enough, even 44khz

GETTING STARTED

Installation without any particular difficulty except that it seems preferable to install the drivers first before pluguer the map. Why?

No inconsistency found

The config, even if it is unnecessary to use enough pressure is still a mystery to me, even after all this time:
the wave device configuration with the "WDM" and "pure wave" and the links between inputs and outputs remain an enigma to me ... never understood the utility never seen a difference ... the same for the PureWave buffer size ...
Only drawback, it is better to fix the frequency to let the card adjust to soft drinks. Sometimes it breaks all small problems but nothing serious.
The lack of French manual is damage ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it every day and sometimes intensely for 6 years at least.

I had previously spent by the soundblasters.

I like its ease of use and the whole side of his functions (audio + midi).
She even manages 5.1 (I do not use it)

What I like least is that it seems to let me go for 1 week but still, after a quick inventory, I plan to buy back the same!

I find the value for money and top top top. Today it is 150 euros. It's really a steal for those who want to make a mao + level as correct.

Eyes closed and hands behind his back, I redeem the same!

I wanted a return to PCI, APRS a experience with Firewire hard. I had a TC Electronic Konnekt 6, which is a very good card with excellent Pramper, really nice shape for the home studio recluse.
But now c'tait totally unstable on my config, hair pulling.

UTILIZATION

drivers are super stable with seven windows, I can work without any worries, forgetting the constraints related computer thing, and has changed my life over the tc Konnekt 6 I had before.
Panel config clean, easy to understand.

GETTING STARTED

trouble-free installation, no incompatibility. Ah, if I close the Kaspersky install the driver for the card been planned to Windows Seven, otherwise

OVERALL OPINION

I've had a good month, uses intensment. Not a single crash dplorer. So I found the joy of composing. I combines Mindprint Trio, and the least we can say is that I'm happy overall.
Manufacturers are forcing us prfrer cards nomadic firewire or USB, limiting the choice for PCI. But when you're sdentaire, even when it is very very con. It may be less "sexy", PCI, but it 10000000 times more efficient and stable.
The miamidi, she is super dynamic, the sound is really excellent, multimdia what I've tested up to whichever PCI (delta audiophile and EMU 0404).
Really a very good deal, I will not change anytime soon.

I rejouterai more RAM you have, the better ... but this is valid for just prèt all!

USE

Drivers super stable and updated every 6 months. (Depending on service pack and Windows versions)
Use with Live7, Audacity, Cubase SX and soundforge.
Latency very very mini, 1-2ms.

Usually I save between 6 and 8 tracks.

IMPLEMENTATION

Installation hyper simple.Pas incompatibility if the drivers are up to date.
THE general config is super simple.
I have not read the manual yet I've had 5/6 years.

NOTICE GLOBAL

Use for 5/6 years.
Main quality: recognized in all my software and often by default. THE sound is played perfectly.
I tried the EMU / Creative card, and audiophiles. But the price / quality ratio is UNBEATABLE !!!!!!!
Experience speaking of herself since I use again and again. Is it really useful to ask me if I would do this choice?

- What characteristics have motivated your choice?
The price, components and access to audio performance Pro, digital connections, the outputs virtual handy with VSTI and MIDI

UTILIZATION

Very easy installation, stable drivers (to update the site Echo), no worries, no crash, his supper, not need the manual, clean interface

GETTING STARTED

I use it for 2 years on my IBM PC P4/800Mhz/3GHz/1Go/2X80S SATA / Logic 5.5 Flat. We save by turns with more than 50 pieces (battery elec, guitar, bass, keyboard, more VSTI) while going top.

OVERALL OPINION

I highly recommend it to all users of home studio they are a beginner or are broke or both and those who do not need more inputs and outputs
Of course the sound of the DVD and CD read with the software of your choice work perfectly
The price currently offered this card is really a case and the sound is there TOP

2 sound card inputs / outputs mono. 1 MIDI input / output. Just what I needed to Get You Started in the world of audio recording.
On a P IV 3 GB, 1 GB of ram, no problem.
Just a problem of its Win XP Pro, you must Tlcharger the latest driver.

UTILIZATION

When you're used to the sound blaster, where everything is automatic, there is a little Drout the interface more "pro" of this card.
Thus, the configuration is not the most simple but APRS few hours galre to understand how it works on all soft drinks, a compatibility and stability for any evidence!

GETTING STARTED

Latency is trs correct: 11 ms for an average of 96 KHz on all apps. But one little rgler more or less, while the computer dpend we derrire.
For the number of tracks, it's pretty hard to say since the hard drive and the rest of the computer come into play noon in Sonar, I use Dxi EWSO Silver, 8 tracks + 2 effects. No problem, as long as the tools are not without stoppage of sixteenth notes throughout the song. It should also rgler buffers audio to match the song that is so varied.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 6 months. What I like about her is the power of sound.
It has the EHJV! For me it's the best of the replaceable Audiophile starting date now. Report Qualitprix trs correct. Of the program for not too expensive.
I referrer this choice or at least now, with the other models with more inputs SERIES.

Arbustre's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Echo MiaMIDI
At first I wanted a card to enter a microphone and a guitar and out of a speaker system, so two I / O TRS. A MIDI function. Originally the home studio, this card has been clean at all (I use it live now!) Pc: Gigabyte 7N400 Pro2 Athlon XP2600 +, 1GB Ram DDR2700, a Seagate HD 120 GB, HD Western Digital 40 GB Now I use a console broadcast Mitec Studio Server 16 where I can add 16 channels plus 16 insert effects simultaneously, the outputs are in the master out (left / right) XLR but no problem since I bought two adapters XLR / Jack balanced returning within two in the MIA, and then I go out with the two balanced outputs from the card to the speakers. 2nd config: I leave the MIA with a TRS into a track of the console and I connect the master out of the speakers Fostex PM1.

UTILIZATION

Little compatibility issue with XP quickly resolved after a ride on the Echo website where I downloaded the appropriate driver. No conflict to date. Config is the child given the number of virtual tracks available. Not read the manual.

GETTING STARTED

The drivers are super stable over time compared to others who regularly jump for a yes or a no. I use Cubase SX2, Reason 3 and Live plus some synths. Latency of only 10 ms (closer to 5 ms, in fact). I can record a dozen tracks of simultaneous Mitec through the console. When reading, it depends on the plug ins used, as always. But that would further the ability of the CPU quà else.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year. Map extremely reliable, no external rack but in fact I tape a bit since I console ... I tried Digidesign and MOTU cards, fine, but too expensive. Quality / price ratio: EXCEPTIONAL. I would do without hesitation that choice in the future and I recommend it to all home studio penniless.
