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.


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!


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


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 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
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).


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 !!!!)


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.


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!


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


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!


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!

mattbassiste07's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good value for money"

M-Audio Delta 1010LT
-Number of input for convenient multi-
10 simultaneous input you can control your sequencer

Micro-singing (Beta 58)
Taking guitar
Taking Low
Battery socket


I run pc studio I go digital physics, but it runs very well with a lower latency to 5 ms on a system under 4 years


Drivers are exceeded go to retrieve new M Audio

I use it with samplitude studio 16 and Cubase SX 3

10 tracks

Very short latency, it's pci, not be compared with the usb


No worries



Unnecessary manual


used 1 month

yes the 2496 one it allows multitrack

very good

Not because I stop the Mao

M-Audio Delta 1010LT
8 IN and 8 OUT ANALOG exploded on RCA
My config: PC ASUS P5K motherboard with 4GB RAM, 160GB DD1, DD2 300GB, 300GB DD3, Intel Core2Duo E6550 2.33 Ghz @
I wired all the patches on RCA jacks for convenient ct
Change May 27, 2009
Too bad the 8 IN / 8 OUT is not symtriques


Nickel chrome super stable, never a concern


Everything is super stable, sound gnial, I use Cubase SX3 and grotools M Powered
3ms latency
Huge ...


I've had a little over a year, and I use it every day. Previously, I had a delta audiophile 24/96 great too, but I wanted to increase the number of IN / OUT analog.
This card is standard, and opens the doors of protools.
I arrive just believe its price is given ...
I would do well Obviously this choice ...
Change May 27, 2009
I will change the map ... because I want to buy a slightly more pro, with entries symtriques +4 dBu

kehi75's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

M-Audio Delta 1010LT
8 in 8 out sound card pci
2 XLR input and the rest in CAR
perfect for home studio setup


The installation is well trs Droulez I put it in the Power Mac G4 that downstream in less than a minute
No problem of compatibility requires mac
Gnrale configuration is not difficult but requires attention may
The manual is not always clear, so it's mostly the instin


The drivers are stable, 3 months of use I have not had to make up besion day, for the cons used with Pro Tools M-powered it should be mj last. Almost zero latency nothing spcial signal. The numro registered on the inputs and outputs are ridiculous, it must be concentrated to the wiring. For all that is There's no problem of MIDI, it does its job.


I use it for 3 months and I am fully satisfied with this card, I used its big sister the sublime m-audio delta 1010 rack and this diffrence does not feel, finally, for now. What I like most about this card is the quality of its converters more than respectable, she recorded with a superb sound rstitution with dynamic sound and clear, we can slctionn level input and output-10dBV 4 dbv, it is paramtrable in a click, and it is super stable.
The one is the RCA incomprhension !!!!, it would at least jack prfr 6.35 but hey, we forgive him because it gives a report 200euros qualitprix exeptionnel, I highly recommend this card and with the experience I would do this choice with eyes closed.

th0rgal's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

M-Audio Delta 1010LT
- Choice motivated by the number of analog inputs / outputs and the simplicity of the interface (32bit PCI standard). This card is enough to turn any PC into a multitrack studio. Affect latency: 2.5ms 48000Hz (96 not tried, what for?)
- "Home studio" recording
- Config: DG965SS, Core 2 Duo E6600 (2x 2.4GHz), 4GB RAM, 2 x 500G (WD, super silent)
- Used with Guitar Fender Start (standard AM, buy the US on-site), Fender Deluxe Active P-Bass, SE Electronics mics Audix OM5 and M1C, etc., etc..


- Installation: Piece of Cake, opens your your PC, you plug in the PCI slot, you boots.
- No incompatibility.
- Config super easy: my studio is running Linux (Ubuntu Gutsy realtime kernel 2.6.23, jackd audio server, ICE1712 driver alsa, no lzard, it's all "out of the box").
- Manual? there was one? chuis sr c'tait as a manual for windoze ...


- ALSA driver snd-ICE1712 works imppec
- Set - Update: hmmmm, may be I do not know really, I am the evolution of the Linux kernel that contains ALSA depusi quite a while now
- Software: mix h / w envy24control recorder / mixer multitrack Ardour, rhythm box software Hydrogen, Rosegarden MIDI editor (I use a piano CA5 the same time with all this mess), sequencer software fluidsynth, amsynth, etc. (much of the "jack apps" for insiders linux)
- Latency 2.5ms (with jackd config: jackd-R-DALSA-dhw: 0-r48000-p64-n2)
- Can record all MIDI tracks +


- Used for almost 2 years
- Loves most: simplicity and reliability (not plant, you plug something in and out perfect. Likes least: the connections -> no. All those damn cables RCA unreadable. The first thing I made it mark the cables so I am confused. Another "minus" unbalanced connections (unbalanced, I know ... not really franais asymmtriques may be?).

I do not know if I would do given the choice I know a little more but it's not a choice that I regret, not in the least. The quality-price ratio is excellent in my opinion.

I just acqurir the RME Multiface II Systm with HDSP PCI card. a should be a notch pro. We'll see ...

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

M-Audio Delta 1010LT
- What characteristics have motivated your choice?
8 entries analos, many outputs analos, 24/96, port IO noon. Exactly what I was looking for. Side "coupling" to bring up to 4 cards (to switch to 32 tracks) is very interesting for one day expand the system without starting from scratch.
I do not use the coax SPDIF inputs, but that will come one day!

- For what purpose?
Multitrack studio recordings + some MIDI instruments (drum machines mainly).

- What is your config (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Hard ,...)?
Standart PC. CPU P4 2GHz, 512MB Ram, 120GB HDD.

- Which instruments or the systems do you use? ...
Use analog outputs transplanting table mix.
I would add also that in relation to SB 128 that I had before, the day was against the dark winter! No particular breath, good definitions, nothing to say!


- The installation is done it without problems?
Back from my little merchant info in less than 10 minutes, no worries.

- Have you experienced any incompatibilities?
No. I did not even use the supplied CD, I was searching for the latest driver on the manufacturer's website (say it: very well done, this site!)

Note also that the card asked me some problems with Windaube, since I replaced a SB (Map more multimedia sound card), so the operating system does not seem to manage multi-voice cards, notament recording. After a system crash, I reinstalled everything, and finally it worked. We must therefore think well erase all traces of the old card!

- The general configuration is easy?
The ASIO driver is exteme stable, absolutely no problems. The routing is done via the window of the driver, the management options are very interesting voice! over the top: the ability to save the configs of the map based applications, like this, you do not lose time to check boxes, one recalls the config we want is all the worse!

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
I did not open yet, but it's me, that ... I opened a big hand in case of severe failure ...


- The drivers are stable?
Ca, yes! extremely stable! never had any problems!

- Are they often updated?
Apparently yes, but why do updates on a stable system?? I do not change a winning team. If I ever have a problem, then yes, I will do an update.

- What software do you use most often?
Cubase SX. Excellent compatibility, except perhaps setting the audio resolution: it must indicate either own the software and driver asio asio the configs, otherwise it looks funny surprises!

- What you get lag?
I think the latency is mostly a problem for those who would use their PC processing system live. Me, I do not care as long as you do not exceed 0.5 sec. I care that the syncro recording / playback and midi (nothing to say on this side for that matter).

- How many tracks you get to record / play time? ...
I think the most I did was read 16-track recording 8 +. nothing has parru shocking. Do I remember, I use this card mainly for its A / DD / A.


- How long have you use it?
That one year that I have (almost).

- What is so special that you like most and least?
The best: the transparency of the driver (he is only there to turn the map, it asks nothing else, what it does very well), and the quality of the converters (value for money at top !).
The Cons: bah connectors: 8cm cable and insufficient identification of CAR. Would have had to buy the rack version, but it exceeded my budjet and I'm not sure that the cable between the rack and the card would have been long enough. So I bought two multicore connectors to extend the map and yay, no need to contortionist in spaghetti for a change.
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
No, I spent a week searching the net to see what qu'ilexistait, I find that for a mid-range, the m-audio is very good!

- How would you rate the quality / price?
I paid 300 euros, and it gives me satisfaction (I know, I could pay less, but I want to kill the small business computer sites via mail order:-p ). In a word: I am very very happy!

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Ah yes! I do not exclude one day go to a couple of m-audio 1010 ...

I put 9 here to not to over 10 ...
