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.


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).


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.


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

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.

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 ...

M-Audio Delta 1010LT
I needed a sound card without latency and 8 in 24/96
I use that I use so taken for sound for acoustic instruments (guitar, bass, percussion) as well as voice;
For the rest I'm working with a lot of virtual instuments so he takes what Cliff shock
PC 2000 + 768 MB RAM 120 DD


The install is more than easy; directly detect by XP
I did the update directly via the website of M Audio
and I must say too easy too ...
No manual, but am good j'me printed manual available on the website (80 pages)
and the fact ......


The drivers are super stable nothing to say
I use it in Cubase SX2 nikel
Latency incredible I do not use my amp direct plug j'la scratches on the card simulator amp branch and go, too pure ........


I have only been a month and I was born to do without
+ + + + Latency, 24/96, 8in 8 out or 10 / 10, opportunities to link 4 in a single computer
------- No power supply 48v
I have a usb sound blaster (too much to make his naz)
The quality and the price is irrprochable 202 on a thomman that price I'll take another 3 to accerder has 32 tracks
To provide urgently for any small purses, and even the largest of which ressteront the ass of the quality of this card Congratulations M Audio

bioman666's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

M-Audio Delta 1010LT
I wanted to 8 analog inputs at 24 bits and especially the stability of the delta.
I used to record 8 tracks at the same time with about 2 effects per track in Cubase VST (very heavy so). The pramps (2) on 2 XLR are the first useful and cost of good quality but I have not really focused on what the cot. word clock sync can be very useful ... and MIDI in / out too.
I have not tried the in / out numrique.


Installation completely transparent. Delta pilots already had installed (the 44, I replaced the 1010) and has all windows install to boot first. Without restarting, I can already start using it! drivers are clear and have enough options to make rglages purposes and are legendary stable.


I'm in 44.1 (I never could make the difference between 44 and 96 of the ear ... so I will not weigh down my hard drive and load my proc for nothing) and I 5ms latency with 8 tracks + 16 VST registered without cracking.
I have not tried to go below, all fawns, 5ms latency hear anyone, and neither the guitarist or bassist or drummer (who had the feature signal back headphones ) there are prt attention ... (I had neglected to tell them about latency ...)
Only BMOL (insignificant my taste, but good): you must read vies for the RCA inputs and outputs their numro ... writing is very small and molded into the plastic ... m'enfin!


I am happy with this purchase trs ... stability of the drivers, the purity and the dynamics of sound and very low latency are the qualities I was looking for exactly!

For that price, it's a very good deal (I have not had the opportunity to test more expensive).

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

M-Audio Delta 1010LT
I was looking for a sound card 96 24
For enrgistrer, mix, master
ASUSP4B 1.5 giga 512MoRam 2DD80gigas
Midi keyboards, microphones, CAD, guitars, preamp lamp envoice

Everything works in 44/16 near-zero latency
96 in the machine (yet powerful) only and are not rsultat trs satisfactory gnral (instability, the enrtegistrement clicks). I must say that my projects are 26 audio tracks minimum. In a relatively stable Cubase5 taken care to treatment of (at least 5 or 6 effects per project) and at least 4 or 5 vst instruments ...


Installation impeccable, the drivers day put on the site M-Audio

Config gnrale child
Manual clear. The map does not do much but generally well done. Audio quality with unmatched creative sounblaster Chres and so little music that I had before.
Only regret is the only creative supoporter SOUNFONT native format (and the type virtual sampler halion behavior have not perfected the edge of this format)


Not yet had time to install new drivers

Problem with Cubase, recording: behavior wacky levels of audio (is there a possible relationship between the recording and Cubase automation of the sound card?? Mystra)

Latency idalie

Number of tracks max read audio tracks + 34 8 VST instruments and effects


Uses in a year
a + + + +
bp monitor in cubase ---
Price quality excellent, but few and not programs that come with, but one need wish gigapiano

I am considering buying another sound card equipped with DSP effects and in-house may be in complment. Another weakness, this card does not read audio CDs, which can be pnalisant for "grabber" audio tracks ....
