Value For Money : Excellent
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.


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


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.


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.
