ericthegreat's review"i prefer m audio's external sound cards"

M-Audio Delta 1010LT
The M-Audio Delta 1010 LT is a high powered sound card that will definitely do exactly what you need it to do for your home set up, it has a 24 bit/96.6 khz sound card that has eight analog inputs and outputs, SPDIF in and out, and MIDI in and out. And just the fact that this is made by M audio says enough. M Audio has always put products out that they stand by and offer great support for. This card can record up to eight tracks simultaneously. Two of the analog inputs are XLR, allowing for direction connection to microphones.


UTILIZATION

I have used this with windows xp and vista and there is some latency, but this may be due to my computer being older. I know latency is an issue with digital recording, which is one of the major reasons why I generally record on analog equipment.


GETTING STARTED

There are some issues with routing the hardware to the output but its nothing that will hold you back for too long. I have used this for quite some time and it is a great product for the money.


OVERALL OPINION

The M Audio Delta 1010 LT is a card for someone that wants to do some good recording from home with there small set upt Most peoples first recordings come from home so this fits righ tin. I still could have transferred my sound files from a machine like the 788 into the computer, allowing me to mixdown in the computer, but I did not know then what I know now. Still, for someone who wants to do everything on the computer, and doesn't care about the potential for crashes, interrupted recordings, jitter, latency, but overall this is a great pc card if you are looking for a soundcard that is built in, but at the end of the day most of us choose to go with an external supply because they are easier to install. I suggest looking into M Audio’s External controllers. They will be way better.

themaddog's review"Nice 8 Track Soundcard"

M-Audio Delta 1010LT
The M-Audio Delta 1010 LT is a 24 bit/96.6 khz sound card that has eight analog inputs and outputs, SPDIF in and out, and MIDI in and out. This card can record up to eight tracks simultaneously. Two of the analog inputs are XLR, allowing for direction connection to microphones, whereas the other six are through RCA connections. All of the analog outputs are RCA. Unlike its big brother the Delta 1010, the LT does not feature its own breakout box, but instead has breakout cables from the PCI card. It's also possible (in theory) to link and synchronize two Delta 1010 LT's.

UTILIZATION

There is some latency, but this may be due to my computer being older. I know latency is an issue with digital recording, which is one of the major reasons why I generally record on analog equipment.

GETTING STARTED

The install is relatively simple, just follow the included instructions if you have any questions. I didn't really have any software or hardware conflicts, but I am running Windows XP Service Pack 2, so other operating systems may or may not have issues. That being said, I did at one time attempt to link two Delta 1010 LT's but was unable to get everything to work simultaneously. I eventually lost interest and returned the second Delta 1010 LT.

OVERALL OPINION

This is a good card for someone that wants to do some decent recordings with their computer. My first recordings ever were on computer... If I could start all over again, I would have taken the money and either bought a decent reel to reel setup with a mixer, or even a standalone DAW such as the Tascam 788 because of their low cost now and ease of use. I still could have transferred my sound files from a machine like the 788 into the computer, allowing me to mixdown in the computer, but I did not know then what I know now. Still, for someone who wants to do everything on the computer, and doesn't care about the potential for crashes, interrupted recordings, jitter, latency, and all the other crap that comes with recording on a PC, this card may be for you.

Hatsubai's review"Great interface card"

M-Audio Delta 1010LT
M-Audio has always been one of the leaders in creating affordable and fairly nice interfaces. They also make cards for those who don't want to deal with a separate box. This features an 8 x 8 analog IO with 2 mic pres, S/PDIF with 2-channel PCM, special copy protection, supports AC-3 and DTS pass-through, has MIDI, can control 7.1 surround audio, has 36-bit DSP mixing/routing which is done internally, can switch between consumer and professional/line level gear, contains a world clock for proper I/O syncing and even includes Ableton Live Lite.

UTILIZATION

I was never a huge fan of these interface cards. My biggest gripe about them is that they always have some sort of breakout cable to get all the features of the device. You simply can't include all these features without some sort of multi pinout breakout cable. First of all, they strain the actual connector because of all the devices hooked up to them. This can cause wear over time, although most of them seem to have combat this. The cables themselves are a bit flimsy, so there's also that issue. Finally, it becomes a tangled mess, and switching stuff on the fly is a bit more difficult for me than if there was a central device in one area.

GETTING STARTED

The device is very easy to use. Install the drivers, hook up the correct devices and you're good to go. It should work with just about any DAW and roughly any computer that has the appropriate computer port. I never read the manual, but I didn't feel there was a need to since it's a pretty straight forward install. Everything is simple to setup, so no issues there.

OVERALL OPINION

I'm not a huge fan of the breakout cable aspect of this device. It's the #1 thing that kills it for me. However, the device itself sounds great, and the mic pres are fairly clean sounding. It has tons of features packed into a small device, so if you're into the whole PCI card interface thing, it's worth checking out.

Super Cinci's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a very good sound card 8 8"

M-Audio Delta 1010LT
That motivated me: 8 inputs, 8 outputs. two years later, I bought a second to enter the 16 tracks (€ 200 this time, the price has fallen strangely). We can put up to 4 in the machine!

I use it on the live-out mix for multi-track recording.

Both cards have three consecutive PC, they still turning.

Side tone, nothing to say, if he sends enough signal, you will not breath.

UTILIZATION

drivers super stable once properly configured. The multiplayer map is hard to take control early, but we had to think of sync!

M-Audio continues to develop the drivers, it's a good thing!

My two cards running in 16/88.2K, 16 tracks and spend carefree.

latency, I do not care, it is the analog reccording!

GETTING STARTED

almost plug and play setup! just install the driver ...

OVERALL OPINION

No, this is the first multi-track card that I made, and I'll maybe take a third one of these days, but it will also take a large hard-drive!

I took this one because delta1010 (with rack) was overrated, just a box ... more

Kelo Sielmeth09/25/2010

Kelo Sielmeth's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good sound card latency"

M-Audio Delta 1010LT
What motivated me to buy this sound card was its price and quality, number of inputs and outputs, and its "zero latency".

I wanted a home studio soundcard professional enough for a minimal price, I record all sorts of instruments and also by noon.

My setup is as follows:
CPU: Intel Pentium III Xeon 3.16GHz x2 Core Duo (E8500)
CM: Asus P5Q-PRO
RAM: 4GB DDR 2
CG: GeForce GTS 250
HDD: 2x Western Digital 1TB S-ATA2 + 1x Western Digital 500GB S-ATA2
I use an input mixer JB SYSTEM MM10, so I only only 2 audio inputs on the 10.

I use this sound card under Windows XP (it does not work on Windows Seven because drivers are not compatible!). It seems that it is compatible with Linux but I could not make it work.

I use it for recording guitar, studio microphone, bass, flutes, percussion, and noon (keyboards, electric heater).

UTILIZATION

The drivers are relatively stable, at least I have had no problems on that side was made from a volume control that requires a crappy external volume controller (I use a mixing desk Behringer XENYX to 40 €).
Please note, the volume control of windows do not work with the Delta.

At the beginning I was using Cubase SX, then I switched to Cubase Studio 4, and finally now I use the wonderful Cubase 5, 100% compatible with the Delta. With Cubase, I use a variety of software packages (GuitarRig, Wizooverb, Akoustik Piano, Pianoteq, Independense Free, FM8, etc. ...

On Cubase 5, I did not encounter track boundaries and I could easily record a midi track ten and twenty simultaneous audio track without it's slow.

And finally, the best: LATENCY:
I get a really exceptional latency: 2177 ms input, output and 2132 ms (all standard sampling frequency: 44100Hz). Both playing on a MIDI keyboard or guitar / mic, it's wonderful, no detectable latency, incomparable with external sound cards first prizes. (Minimum latency for this, thank you the ASIO driver that is specifically compatible with the Delta !!!!)

GETTING STARTED

Installing the PCI card has performed without problems for drivers when it has been more or less, it took me a few weeks to take over all the drivers and configure all features.
For inputs and outputs,

Incompatibility I have encountered are: Linux and Windows Seven, nothing else.

As I said, configuring the sound card is very long and relatively complicated if one does not know it, most of the manual is in English, and anyway I do not need, in One can quibble we understand. I was scared at first for its system of jumpers on the sound card to amplify the XLR (microphone) but finally I did not even use because I use the XLR inputs of my mixer.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it now for over 2 years and I am very happy for its latency and stability, but I regret the input and output formats (try plugging the speakers into a mini stereo jack or dual jack without use adapters on mono cinch, suddenly I was going through an amplifier into sound and then cinch to PA speakers)

Recess for a home studio it is better to use studio monitors and are usually in connection 2x XLR jack or 2X, this sound card is really a blight on the system because every time one passes through plug adapters you lose quality.

What I like most about this sound card is its latency of 2 ms and power (it is also cumulative, if you buy 2 you can connect them)
What I like least is its RCA inputs (for a guitar or other instrument jack, it will go through a mixer or an adapter), RCA outputs and even more if you want a external volume control (because the internal is useless) then you must go through a mini mixer.

Before buying it I tried some internal sound cards and I got higher latencies ...

I judge the value for money 9 / 10 (why not 10? A question formats input / output RCA (they should have put input and output jack also) and that because of their virtual volume controller crappy and only 1 input 1 output noon and afternoon)

With experience, I think I made an internal sound card with an external interface (like the Delta 1010), but now I am thinking of buying a USB external sound card for input / output and a range of settings hand, but latency is high + ...

zebzik's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Swiss Army knife - very professional - excellent value for money!"

M-Audio Delta 1010LT
Card 8-channel 96k 24b asio, Cascadable thereby making good quality multipises configs. The converters are very good, it's not low-end!

UTILIZATION

once properly installed it is stable and efficient, but be careful not compatible with all motherboards (there is an old chipset that problem).


GETTING STARTED

only restriction: the routing of hardware input / output card is valid, so if two or three cards of the premix are hardware constrained, but generally this is not a problem because it is too subject to this material .. . the goal is the acquisition!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for over 5 years, 2x and 1x delta1010LT delta1010 rack; frankly LT are much less bulky! but the rack version is somewhat more reliable is a bit more resolution. Excellent value for money!
danehj07/05/2010

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

M-Audio Delta 1010LT
I bought this sound card for the number of entries (although I did not need much at the moment but you never know ...), and most importantly, the fact that the mic inputs are amplified (+ 30 dB), therefore, a priori, no need for mic preamps.
I use it to record vocals, piano, guitar and bass live without using amplifiers. and I must say I'm pretty happy with the result. I mastered all that with Cubase SX and it runs pretty well. I'm on an Acer Aspire T160 computer with 1GB of RAM.

UTILIZATION

The drivers are stable but apparently not often renewed and that is unfortunate. Latency is satisfactory for most records especially for the microphone inputs. I did not record more tracks at the same time, I do not know how the card handles the thing ...

GETTING STARTED

Easy installation fast, efficient, nickel what! No major incompatibility with the software I use (Cubase, Reason, Audacity ..., ASIO works well and is recognized for all the software mentioned above. The manual is clear and although a bit light you have to get on the internet when you want more detailed information


OVERALL OPINION

I use this card for just under a year and I am generally satisfied. the only concern is the sizzle that is present on the microphone inputs to +30 dB. I'm still not arrived to get rid of it and I really do not know how ... So, I may have to buy a preamp for the mic and that's what I wanted to avoid!
For this reason, I am a little disappointed, but for everything else and especially for its price, I recomande buying this card for anyone who wants to make music without taking itself too quiet the t ^ te. It is a good buy for beginners (like me).
