Rototom1212's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I use fl studio responsible for 9 samples and many vsti. No problem of latency.
No problem during installation.
I have a SB Audigy player on an old pc which I was completely satisfied seen what I asked (no latency). So I stayed true to the Audigy. I have 2 years, bought second hand. Never any problems. Of course, if you want hardware pro, knock on another door. For my part, I am completely satisfied considering the price I paid and what it allows me to ...

Freudon's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Super Product"
I took it for the quality of sound reproduction really incomparable (24-bit 192kHz)
with an integrated sound card, asio driver, the management of 7.1, the outer casing,
Following logiciel.Je used with a keyboard Yamaha CVP303.
I use it mainly for listening to music with little or no compressed
but also of computer music as an amateur.
My setup is an AMD X4 955 with motherboard
Asus 990FX with 8gb of ram 3 hard drives for a total of 3Tos
and a 24 "screen.
The drivers are stables.Il there were some problems out of Vista
It came from the builder who was reluctant to put their drivers updated for the sake
to sell new cards but the problem was eventually solved.
I myself am in seven 64-bit and the card works very well.
There is only the MIDI does not work but most
instruments now in usb work.
Installation is no problem
provided to make the right versions
software after the operating system.
Instructions on the CD but little used.
Inconsistencies are appeared at the outlet
Vista and have since been resolved.
I use it for 6 years.
I already had a soundblaster
I love the quality of sound reproduction.
The price was good value for
solde.Je bought this choice would do without hesitation.

KMusicSoftware's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Creative discontinued support for this product and driver for windows7 do work only partially, I'll spare you the details.
But I used hang seven years with windows xp and I was happy, the VST work well without any latency.

the idles's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I use it to record demos. The external rack is connected to the output amplifier and stereo speakers for monitoring and input to a mixer which I plug in guitar, bass and microphone. For MIDI I use a master keyboard connected to the rack for the synths and the orders of plug-ins.
I use it on a PC that is not dedicated exclusively to the mao (except Internet) with an AMD Athlon 64 3800 X2, 2GB RAM, 2 internal dd 80 (windows) to 160 (Mao) and a dd External 160 (safeguards)
Implementation very simple, it operates on the base with the asio master map "direct x full duplex but with a latency of 45 ms. Then I use asio4 which reduces latency up to 2 ms without problem with my setup. For recording tracks and choose the audio input or noon, he must go through the window surround mix "very easy to use. Recording in 44 or 48 kHz, 16 bit or 24 without a problem, I have never been able to use the 96 kHz (but why bother?)
The card is very stable. Cot sequencer it works very well with Nuendo. Latency level, no problem with asio4. Of course with this card you can not record multiple tracks conjuction but for the creation of a model home that is not essential ...
In conclusion good little versatile card (with much more multimedia-oriented gadget without much interest) in computer music but if you did not need a "gas plant" and if you record each instrument, it is quite correct for making models of good quality.
alechat's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I use Cubase SX3 mainly 24/48khz PC CPU Athlon 3000 + barton + 2GB SD memory SATA and IDE
For shipments in the card, I use a 01V For For returns, I use the SPDIF connection
Installation very simple and Asio 2 drivers, the day set config is simple to install a config 5.1, just Defines the outputs (left, right, front, rear, etc.) So simple)
Drivers rev up stable and days until the XFi, but no diffrence except the price
I get a latency of 5ms veuc if I push, but as a general rule, I let the 7ms. Cel allows me to have a max of audio tracks + Vsti. short, inaudible behind. I have more present essay QLQ cards and so-called computer music Dedis They are ramasss
This is not an audio computer music "Dfine as such" but will see the home ct Emu connotation that "multimedia" This card is excellent
Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
The installation is not very easy, but it is negligible. The general configuration was a bit dubious in my cas.Windows keeps harping that he has detected a sound card when it is installed for a long time.
Good, we go into the problems, at least I have problems with this carte.En done since I bought it I had more problems than anything else. A time playing a video game, the sound of a sudden turns into the carton flap, due I reinstall the whole map from the service (great council) ...
In addition, it is true that when you plug a headset it saturates quickly, and I do not understand ... When you configure the software and that is creative in "headphones", height of fill is as good as when you put a headphone like configuration with "2.1 speaker"! J'halucine it's foutage Geul.
Another problem, although the noise level is higher, the sound saturates quickly (compared with no map) when playing mp3 ...
Yet another problem: while quietly listening to the fruit of my work on Reason, a bug blew up part of my song while playing! And it happens (fortunately this is rare) whereas before it would never happen with a single chipset built into the motherboard ... It is doubtful any ca.Et finally recording electric guitar through Vox VST disappointed me! Total lack of punch.
In his games against the video (when it works) and DVD is impeccable!
I use it for a few months, I like connectivity for its price rather affordable. What I like the least I have already mentioned above.
I never tried the other models before.
I do not have that choice would do because in fact this card is not suitable for computer music ... it remains for me to sell it. However it is a card that fits well with gamers and DVD enthusiasts etc ...
boner's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
No installation problems, at least no major problems, easy to implement, I know I probably uses not all the capabilities ... on the other hand I did not understand that readers do not respond to Integrated screensaver when you watch a movie to get up every 10 minutes to move the mouse c not great, but cest not my goal with AC, AT THE TIME plates had been connected by a INTERMEDIATE mixer, we had a little trouble for the output and input of its own but it was a laborious installation ....
I use it for audio recording with Logic, everything works as intended, the sound is not very clear but given the material I have I was thinking that that is really a sound card (check) c by that I plug in my hi-fi system and either there is no problem
I am satisfied, for 2 years of use, it is a very practical way to store, maybe the sound is not very clear but it is enough for a decent result, c ' is my first sound card so I no opinion comparison, just what I think of this one, but given the price of professional equipment I think it's a good buy, as a proper right price, with the 'experience j'referai j'dispose this choice if the same budget, prefer to invest the best choice but the sound is a graaaaand investment ....
sade's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Config: Barton XP2600 (L2 = 512) slightly overclocked, 1 gigabyte of memory motherboard Asrock low-end, XP PRO, ATI 9600 pro 128
No installation worries, no conflict. I notice that often do not know musicos optimize pc which can cause a lot of pb, pc notament with Bell or other such crap! I mounted a number of PC per year and IT is my job, so I know a little bit ...
As for the bundled software, no interest for me.
Drivers with no worries, used with Nuendo2 (Cubase SX2 early)
Latency = 4 ms
For now, a maximum of 16 half track stereo, with many reverb, compressor, equalizer.
Never had any problems with the track number, or by reading or recording.
I work in 48/16 bit. Craquements.Aucun no slowdowns. Used with a mixer ALESIS Multimix 6FX, so I do not use the mic. ROLAND PC180 master keyboard and guitar interface
Used for 1 year and this is my first sound card. No worries me so happy! Need I say more?
Now, all moving very quickly there must be as well and even better, like E-mu.
I do not regret my choice.

Gloomy1984's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
This card has also an entrance and exit noon (for example connect a synth or a piano numrique). Paramtrable Latency is and can be lowered to 2ms if I remember correctly this that is his lot in impeccable.Le direct.Tout a bunch of other entries litter this card but I have not had the useful at the moment.
Another smaller but has also motivated my choice: esthtisme and ergonomics. The external rack looks pretty pro and it is less restrictive and less fragile than a lot of cable so that direct the map (see phase 26 TerraTec)
At the installation, no problem everything is intuitive and fonctionnel.Nanmoins past few days my computer reboots ds I try to take a look at the EAX console .... I do not know not at all or it may come, but must say that my computer does not format for over a year.
Think nanmoins adsactiver sound cards prcdement installsa from the bios of your PC.
When in doubt I put an average score.
The drivers are stable trs, no problem of the cot, I work with Cubase as I said above, I consists of 16 tracks diffrent up and it does train pas.Comme said above the Latency is paramtrable to your envies.Pour I put my hand is at least 2ms.
All this dpend especially your bcane.C is on that if you install it on a computer for four years, even if the card is good it's going to row!
In closing I just want to say to people who buy this card has hsiteraient not trust the bad langues.Cette card is not professional! If you want business cards, it is not with you 250 euros you procurerez.Le report quality price of this card is trs INTERESTED, a lightweight breath during the recording (not very sgnant) and some problems of driver (can be) the rest are adplorer.Pour that price it's all bon.L offer software is not that great anyway but no matter
