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.

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).

M-Audio Delta 1010LT
I chose this model for the number of inputs / outputs very similar to my TerraTec EWS88MT grid that after 5 years of good and loyal service. the XLR mic (although I expect no miracles of a preamp to troubleshoot more biensur c)

I am also against the use of USB or firewire on desktop. why the hell add elements that also can be problematic (icompatiblits chips usb / firewire connector ...) so I turned to the ICP.

the point that I like very much that the asio drivers are syndicated.

I use it on a Dual core 2.4 with 2GB ram running XP sp2.

UTILIZATION

How often I use the cd that came with not a gear and I'll live on the site builder to make the latest drivers. and no concern for installation. no conflicts (I was nervous with my motherboard ASUS P5K very recent).

with respect to man, I can not say I have not opened. y'en one anyway? but he did not fail at all. panel config is pretty straightforward (especially since this is in routing a clone of my old EWS88MT).

GETTING STARTED

Drivers super stable. very low latency 3ms no worries, I get a 10ms when I really want to be alone.

the control panel of the card works fine, for against the ergonomics of this one is very weak. we are far from the control panel ews88MT or m-audio usb. nothing serious, however, put a hand setting levels of that is done on a fader for rididule 20pixels! AIM might have a page entirely dedicated to control the input level.

OVERALL OPINION

I have this card for 6 months and I am really very happy.

no worries. I almost forget it's simple it is!

I think the number of input-output ratio / price is unbeatable! and without that e the quality suffer. biensur can not compare to those of a converter RME, but the price also is without comparison.

after a year with, if it burns out, or if my computer caught fire, or a comet falling on my homestudio, I think I would do the same choice
