For dtails machine, cf. product.
I purchased a mobile home + use (occasional) with my Laptop Fujitsu-Siemens (1854Mhz AMD, ALi Chipset, 512MB, 60GB)

UTILIZATION

The installation was simple t trs, but the config to find the right adquate PC / soundcard a nightmare for a novice computer like me, the point of wanting to sell all ... And then, little by little, with the guidance of mail art M-Audio (on top!), The AF forums (thank you!), Web + Reinstalling a sound from my PC (disk partition, d uninstall all the useless ...) and application of all the tips to optimize the audio in XP, things are back to normal. So I have some say the worst chipset existing computer music (ALi) and ACPI (the passage in "Standard PC" is not given except reformatting the disk!) And ... everything is nickel, with 4ms latency and no crashes in Reason2.5 on Entire Journe.
Still, the heads of many taken several months to the average m'empchent Ozone on this point.

GETTING STARTED

The drivers are stable, there was no set day rcente my knowledge. I 4ms latency in Reason (the software that I use the +), with audio inputs disable the card. I will use Cubase SX2 often in coming months and I will update my opinion that the time but for now (with less use as Reason) st. S. Use no problem with my VSTi (FM7, B4, EVP73 ...). I am also taken some guitar, st. S. l also ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year and I almost dplorable leave a review on this machine, while there silent for nothing. J'apprcie really can bring my studio in a backpack and the keyboard is fairly robust (good knobs, much better than I UC33e too). I tried the Tascam US122 of silent'm saying because it is compatible with the ALi chipset of my laptop => crap (the same as the assistance from Tascam! Is she?): The Ozone worked perfectly while the Tascam cracked rgulirement (approximately every 30 seconds!)
I would do this choice, or may be, the new Ozonic (3 octaves, more control and FireWire connection, but less transportable too!)
