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

Posseceur this sound card for 2 and a half years, I have never had anything against him.
bits/48kHz converter 20, a multitude of I / O (6 jacks in total) and an e / s numrique.
It manages the sampling (remember that e-mu + possde one of the major, see the + big library of sounds in the world), the samples are provided ....
Finally, in short it is good to do everything (for Enquiries see the e-mu).
converter, sampling (up to 32MB), effects of good quality, but do not expect to have an emulator instead of the pc.
it turns on a system duron 700 with 192MB, 2 hard drives, no problems except for the redraw of drivers (warning windows xp: unrecognized!).


It installs without problem, the config is very ais (cubase user), it gre perfectly asio.

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

J'm'en use it on a PC config duron 1200 with 512 MB SDRAM for models (like pop rock), coupled with sonar. Level features is a bit old (16bit 48khz) but not the stuff I hope to scrape enough quality to my sound card (a 48 or 96khs breath, it's still a breath o)). level instruments, I record mostly the voice, guitar, sound module, and synths (+ some soundfonts from time to time too).
Note: DSPs are great, and real-time effects are downright useful (for my level)


It has been said, but the installation of drivers is not possible on an original config> win98. Dur. and that's a shame, because the apps included with the drivers (table mix, playing soundfonts) were frank and friendly practices.
Today, it is the site www.kxproject.com FREQUENTLY checker, which provides drivers for XP and 2000, quite powerful, but very technical: to use the DSP must be banging a virtual wiring hot enough to saisr early . good, with a little practice, you get there (fortunately, we can save their configs).


The Kx drivers are stable, updated frequently (about once a month) and it is approaching at 4ms latency, which is very respectable, and sufficient to record a track over another without having to move. I record the songs as sonar generally have a dozen audio tracks, plus three tracks quattre noon, and arrived without any problems in re-record over one when it is necessary, or add virtual effects (reverb and company) DSP by reading out all this.
In short, nothing wrong with this view, this card is quite usable in home studio enthusiast.


I use it for about 3 years.
the +: no brainer for the install (Kx drivers), no latency issues, very little breath, the DSPs and the many effects included with the Kx drivers (among other auto-wah terrible drivers original) + 1 4in 2outs noon, just what I need (j qd've even added a USB MIDISPORT 2x2)
and -: gallery before falling on the Kx drivers, the gallery of wiring to use DSP effects with these drivers, small cracks in the tps tps (clicks).
value for money: in enuf, this card at a price compltement abérent (4000 balls I think) while qd is even a kind of soundblaster improved, but OCCAZ, we found for 200 euros, which is reasonable.
you do again this choice: Yeah, no doubt.

christophe.alzetto's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

It is a versatile card, a kind of precursor to a system that Creamw @ re Pulsar. I made this choice he Yadji almost 5 years (!) For the good report card qualitprix convertos with a different order than those of SB, a management and a DSP sounffonts tr s fully stocked with soft (the mixing desk and effects of the era w98, yum!) + I / O and analog numriques trs sufficient in number for studio work (insufficient for live, but not my n'tait) + doc a strong and accessible for home-studio owners still green ... For models it perfectly silent, it still is if you can afford to stay in 16 bit 48 Khz. That said I know that the pros used it a few times again for the def, reporting for music and movies (yes, really!) By mocking many of the limitation to 48 Khz.
It runs on an Athlon XP1800 + and 512MB of DDR, but once she turned on a lot less than without a problem!
So connectivity issue, ATTENTION: In addition there is a grate in the config jumper E-Drive, if you choose to send the 12 V power supply phantm (I prfre not serve me of a, I use pramps DDIS undertaking it and I come into line level), think connect asymtrique (TRS jacks), otherwise the signal bobo ... I apris my APRS NWPD dsesprement taken many weaklings ... No, these entries have the potato, but ... T - R - S! If necessary, you must tinker TRS-XLR cables.


Well, there have been 3 years galre black with a cessation of support drivcers. Fortunately, a ingnieur had the good ide, and the comptence gnrosit available to the famous Kx drivers. The problem is that the CABG virtual assignments and everything, c'tait a job for ... engineers. But O wonder, we learn now that E-MU (well, Creative, what) went back to taff and out ... version 1.6 for 2000 and XP! ! ! ! Incomprhensible ... but because of bnf. I started testing all bazard: ca Ragit carefully as old as 98 applications, but with limitations and less! And this is good: the softs taient trs, trs damn good routing and stack effects, sweet and stupid limitation of 32 KB of loading soundfon, ts in RAM jumps ! ! ! Ah ah ah, who said E-MU as an era c'tait strictly impossible, Mmmmmh ?.... As for latency, ASIO and everything has a ca t visibly amlior trs.
In short, the huge and unacceptable problem of incompatibility appear to belong to the past. To be confirmed. So, we end up with an effective management DSP possible time effects rls as trs really good.


Well, we saw the issue of drivers.
Cubase or Sonar, no problem. I have to make tests pass but the latency is 2 ms! As for the tracks simultanment readable in 48 Khz I turned twenty dj uneventful. Recording, you can make full use of all inputs simultanment no problem either, but in any case it takes the RAM!
So the 9 / 10 is by "forgetting" the PERIOD cessation support, einh, we do agree ...

Otherwise, a glimpse:


Old user of the bte, so it would seem that the arrival of drivers thanks 1.6 the E-MU offers a second life. And it may be worth, despite his ct Exceeds same as when I find it is convenient and it rings. Today, I'd perhaps be more for RME, a Creamware, whatever ... but the era c'tait a trs good choice, and I find it still crdible.
