    I bought the first version (I think I remember it is printed Rev. B above but I'm not on) there 15 years with Cubase VST 3 for my Mac G3. She has since gone through a G4 and a PC Athlon and Intel i7-920.

    I use
    - With my microphone, shure type scene, a wide behringer diaphragm, a pair samson kind overhead through different preamps (Mackie console, preamp tube BlueTube and jackson);
    - Synchronized spdif with my POD X3 Live, which allows me to use 4 inputs simultaneously. a single RCA cable to provide for this purpose.

    I use
    - With my microphone, shure type scene, a wide behringer diaphragm, a pair samson kind overhead through different preamps (Mackie console, preamp tube BlueTube and jackson);
    - Synchronized spdif with my POD X3 Live, which allows me to use 4 inputs simultaneously. a single RCA cable to provide for this purpose.

    UTILIZATION

    Impeccable Driver Integrated mixer absolutely functional. There is a virtual bus "Monitor" that can be transplanted in ASIO. Very handy for software that does not function Export audio. For example Firefox.

    In 44.100 kHz and with a buffer of 384 samples, the latency indicated by Cubase is 9683 input and 9342 output. It is very convenient to be able to change at will, it can happen to me to increase the buffer up to 2048 when I use many virtual instruments and effects. I use only the direct monitoring (never by cubase) through my POD multi-effect that is both guitar bass, acoustic or voice.

    This is the MIDI that is more difficult when I use a virtual instrument with my keyboard, I have to lower the latency as much as possible and disable the master effects, but it is not a problem unique to this card, all audio systems work like this.

    GETTING STARTED

    Todo bem. (Everything is fine)
    Tiny problem: the drivers are only available in the language of Shakespeare only. This has never bothered me in the least.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I owned a behringer USB + noise gate which had limited analog integrated. It sounded more flattering than 2496 and dynamics processing was convenient. But she farted after 3 months: LARGE M. ... this brand has a bad reputation but the micro B-2, the PX2000 patch T1950 preamp and have always satisfied me.

    I worked for a week with an M-Box Digidesign. The sound is more crystalline and more flattering than the 2496 but it is all in the same price range and latency is higher with USB. I can not say which of the two is more transparent, 2496 amply satisfies me. If I had a choice I'm not sure I prefer the sound of the Digidesign because it is crystal clear and flattering can not always be indicated, depending on the type of production on which bump and that the we want to do the mix.

    I highly recommend this card for all types of use, for beginners as well as experts in all situations. The sound is not as flattering as other brands I have tried, but it is not necessarily a fault.

    Rather than taking a big sound card, I decided to invest in the rest of my studio (PC overkill, guitars and basses horny sound and touch, microphone choices relatively large, multi-effect pedal for extension of inputs for the map). I do not regret that choice. If one day I need more I / O or that fails, I would reiterate is the same (the driver allows your sequencer see all soundcards as one) or another model of the same brand. However, if I have more money I would turn to Digidesign and Apogee again, but probably I will keep this card in a corner or on the PC, if that reference sound.

    It's perfect!

    Yes I had in front on another PC, a 0404 EMU full of cables and more complex interface.

    I would do this choice: yes to opportunity, not nine, as technology has evolved with external cards or racks.

    I was looking for a good sound card cheap, powerful enough for the small home studio and has the midi interface.
    At the time (around 2000 I think) I still had to be already running XP and Cubase VST32. Since then, the card went smoothly on 2 or 3 new PC configurations without any problems and Cubase SX, but I'm not passed on Vista or 7.

    UTILIZATION

    Drivers are regularly updated by M-Audio.
    Latency is imperceptible, even under 44khz. I do not have my PC on hand to check, but from memory it should be under 12ms to 44khz and 48khz at 8 under.

    No doubt that the components are not worth those of a pro config, but honestly the sound is really excellent.

    GETTING STARTED

    I do not recall having experienced any problems during the various installations and relocations that I had to do.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I must have over 10 years I think. Now, I use more often than one external interface Line6 UX2 because I am a guitarist and it allows me to directly connect my guitars (great product incidentally). But I always use the Audiophile recordings for MIDI, and sometimes also in general release.
    I do not know if it is still marketed, but it was really a good product with excellent value for Q / P I think.

    I took this card because I wanted a PCi and above that is well supported by Linux.
    This card works very well, I mostly recorded bass and guitar (via preamp).

    For drivers no idea because I use a system (linux) or the drivers are included and free, so it is stable and constemment to day.
    Latency for I never am able to, I used this card with some free software like ardor, and especially under reaper.
    This is a two-track input, and can record both simultaneously without pb

    Having had much problem with my 1010th ESI, I took the Delta Audiophile because I knew what was reasonably priced and that stability would be at the rendezvous, she is one of the best and this for a while.
    I use it with W7 64b, 8GB ram, a SSD disk to the bone and a 2TB disk for data.

    UTILIZATION

    I use it with several DAW with REAPER, Energy XT 2.6, Live 8.2, 5 and Cubase Studio One and it works great, as I work "IN THE BOX" I do not serve as inputs or catches south of card.
    Super stable drivers no worries. Generally I set the latency to 256 samples and it runs quiet.

    - There is a manual!

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long you use it?
    - For some months
    Did you tried many other models before buying it?
    - Before I make another PC I had a soundblaster platinum two that I liked for that matter, I then took an ESI ESP1010e déconnait that serious but it is back to normal, hence the fact that I took a Delta Audiophile (this is a standard and widely enough to work unless you register a group / multiple instrument in m ^ me time, you need a card that handles more than a stereo input.
    What is so special that you love the most, least?
    - Stability and simplicity
    How would you rate the quality / price?
    Very good.
    With experience, you do again this choice?

  • Great card in it's day

    M-Audio Delta Audiophile 24/96Publié le 02/19/12 à 02:41
    I purchased this card because it was affordable and it and it allowed me to connect both my Midi controller (before usb midi controllers were popular) as well as my turn table. I use this card for music production and a little armature vocal recording (thought I was a vocalist at the time). I was tempted to use it for other instruments but never really enjoyed using 1/4 to RCA connections. I mean I've done them here and there and just had bad results but I've heard good results as well.

I mean I've done them here and there and just had bad results but I've heard good results as well.

    UTILIZATION

    When I used this audio card the drivers were stable M audio has updated the drivers since the release of the original. For the best possible experience with this maudio card I would suggest installing ASIO4ALL drivers as well. I don't remember exactly how much latency I encountered with this card I do remember that whatever latency i did experience wasn't enough to hurt my music creating experience especially with the use of ASIO4ALL..

    I used a few different applications with this card.

    Reason
    Cubase
    Ableton live
    Sonar

    Mostly reason but I had to run over to the daws and record my vinyl records from my turntable because at this point and time reason didn't record audio.

    GETTING STARTED

    I didn't run into any compatibility issues I did however run into a driver issue but that was my fault because I installed an older version of the driver then tried to install an updated version of the drivers over the older driver. So what must be done is uninstall the old drivers before installing the new drivers (just to be safe). The configuration for the card is simple and easy to adjust/reconfigure. The manual is very easy to follow and understand, basic but easy to understand none the least

    OVERALL OPINION

    I wish this card had more I/Os and or option I/O connections. I feel the sound quality was more than sufficient,it got the job done and it got the job done well (very well). I think the card was fairly price just wish it had a few more bells and whistles but fairly priced. The only other cards I've had experiences with before this was gaming sound cards primarily "Sound Blaster". Knowing what I know now I'd go with a higher quality USB or fire wire interface but back then they weren't an option so had to work with what was available

    latency latency you said? it depends on the chosen sampling adjustment. I have frankly no worries on that side.

    GETTING STARTED

    to install, simple you can not find .... You installed the card, the driver and HOP HOP HOP!! it's good, you have to test after the synchros and buffers.

    For configuration, simply select the mode you want in the "PANEL"

    Anyway the book is super simple to understand.

    this is the only card I use, I even two, thinking she had a malfunction but in fact it was my previous PC which had gradually given up the ghost (SNIFFFFFF. ...... ;) ......
    I will test the two cards in one PC later, I saw a forum on AF who speaks ...... (Want want want!!)

    For the price you can find better, more in the range of products M-Audio is great and really full ..... So yes I highly recommend it:

    easy

    UTILIZATION

    The drivers are stable, at least on my setup. I have not had any problems with installation, at the same time this card is no longer very young so I guess the drivers have been improved since its release. It's been a while since I have not done the update, but I do not think there is much now anyway. Especially the main one being that everything is stable, and that side not worry about me.
    I do not use a lot of tracks, maybe 8 read with virtual instruments, and I never had a problem. For latency, it is almost nonexistent.

    GETTING STARTED

    Installation is simple once the driver downloaded. No inconsistency on 2 PC with which I used this card. The manual is concise, I've never really needed.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for about 7 years, and it still works as well. I'm using it for work on almost sequencer with virtual instruments, so it is quite sufficient. For recording audio, I have another more suitable config (Mac + Motu), but this card can help. The sound quality is not bad when it comes to working with VST, but for the record there is of course much better. For the price, it remains in my opinion a very good card, like all Delta series elsewhere.
    The most:
    - Value for money
    - Transparency of the card, once installed you forget
    - Dynamic quite correct in this price range
    Cons:
    - Input / output RCA audio at the same time at that price ...

    I would do without this choice problem, especially when I see the life of this and the fact that she did not really competitive even today in this price range. An excellent investment for anyone wanting to seriously start computer music.
