E-MU 1820Published on 10/31/08 at 16:00
Its real nice to have all the inputs and outputs, the mic preamps sound great, except after 2 years of use the A line has been having some voltage issues, large fluctuations at about .5 hz. The onboard effects are a nice touch, but i hardly use them, they have weird latency problems when i link them into FL Studio.

Price paid: 399 USD

UTILIZATION

It took me a bit to understand how it went about using asio, but now that i understand it i get around pretty well, and ut can actually be fun to use. I can put reverb on someones voice while recording dry. Its nice to have a digital mixer, but an analog mixer is ten times better.

GETTING STARTED

Like i said earlier the mic A input is hardly usable now, and the headphone input is feeling loose(pops and cracks when moved), guess it might be time to get a headphone amp, and maybe a mic pre. It was great while it worked though.

OVERALL OPINION

Well MUCH better than the crap that comes out of a stock sound card. Though I havn't heard any other interfaces in the price range through my monitors.

Well it was my first prosumer card, and i don't have much to base my opinion on other than my friends equipment. It definatly has better features than other interfaces in its price range. Its treated me well, but it hasn't been increadibly reliable. I'll have to get a new interface at some point, and i'm not going to buy another EMU. I guess its a good card for the money, but its only to tie you over till you go for the big/expensive stuff.

PCI sound card 8 channel (including 2 péamplis)

These are 8-channel 24-bit motivated me for the price, I use it in a home studio for recording voice, guitar or solo instrument often, sometimes recording drums, and equity group multitrack rarely.
PC System Win 7 64-bit drivers have been updated since XP and it works perfectly, even if the card is no longer in catalog E-Mu.

UTILIZATION

Drivers are updated for Win 7 64-bit, perhaps for the last time? In any case I record up to 8 tracks smoothly on Samplitude ProX.
Against by the software package with Cubase had no interest.

GETTING STARTED

Immediate implementation, updating drivers without incompatibilities easy for my config.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 8 years, the price / quality ratio seems fine, the problem is just the price of other cards you can find 8 channels.
Repeat this choice at the time, yes. Today the card is no longer sold, pending is "My sound card."

I bought it as soon as it came out. I am happy for my audio applications. my sequencer Cubase SX 2 runs well with. the audio dock and the menu offers lots of possibilities. it handles very well in all my other windows applications such as games and DVDs. Asio 2 takes care of everything! Finally, a card not too expensive and professional. (I recommend for a good scratch DI anyway)

UTILIZATION

Warning! initialization bug patch mix sometimes at startup of Windows XP. must then wait.
the configuration is pretty cool. manual CD is zero. but it helps out

GETTING STARTED

I will think about updating drivers, but I have not the exact address.

I work on a PC Athlon XP2000 + 1.8 GHz, 1024 to DDRAM and four hard drives, including one for music and a 80 G 160 G.
I work a lot with Sonar 4 and a lot of VST instruments.
I had a Soundblaster Live Platinum.
So a lot of latent hope in the fall sharply with this new card.

UTILIZATION

This is where the complications begin.
Installation software, nothing to say. But just to read the instructions ..... the manual is a bit short.

GETTING STARTED

And here I plug in my guitar and I found an old file that I wanted to add a little guitar.
But no sound. I am looking at the presets (everything is in English in this card?) After several fruitless searches, this is it! sound, but...…

And here I plug in my guitar and I found an old file that I wanted to add a little guitar.
But no sound. I am looking at the presets (everything is in English in this card?) After several fruitless searches, this is it! sound, but after noon, more soundfonts.
No problems stall, no latency issues, just one problem .... sound.

OVERALL OPINION

I think it will take me a long time to tame the beast.
What saddens me is the loss of soundfonts is a trademark of Creative (those who bought E-MU, which made their sound cards with E-MU inside)
Response E-MU, you just buy Emulator X to be able to refill your Soundfonts (I have over 300) and voila € 100 more to go.
I think I made a good choice by taking the full map for a small price, despite all the criticism I've done, but I find it silly that lack of integration with soundfonts Vienna scheduled for this card.
