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

Edirol DA-2496
8 input / output audio in that price with PCI I / O + Midi, I wonder why we talk no more of this card / rack.
I'm very happy, it turns nickel with Cubase, no problem of latency, it responds perfectly.
Now I expect the drivers for the OS X, we will see if Edirol will follow.


Installation easy, I fumbled a bit with the WHO, but it was my fault. WHO still run primarily by the sequencer.
The manual is very clear.


The drivers are updated (ASIO 2), wait for those OS X.


2 times less expensive than other equivalent models in the market, price / quality ratio awesome.
(I work not among Edirol, it's just that I'm happy with my purchase)

Edirol DA-2496
8 inputs / 8 analog outputs, 2 XLR inputs with phantom power supply.
Input / output SPDIF
24 bit 96 Khz
Between Midi output, headphone jack ...
Everything Mount 19 "rack pretty trs
Support for external sync, possibility of chains up to four cards.
And not least 2 inputs specially guitar / bass sound really ...


Problem-free installation, console and routing possibilities I got too soft, but powerful enough dj.
The various connections in faade rvlent trs quickly their usefulness and practicality.


Trs good use ASIO as low latency, low trs, trs good opportunities for monitoring, incredible stability.
WDM drivers for cons have some problem, it jumps a little in the beginning of each reading is a bit odd. Still not good stuff I probably rgl??
No new drivers the damage of this cot. Routing capabilities are masks on these drivers, but still not accessible. Strange ...


The main advantage of this card: the sound!
The converters sound really good. For the price, even bother to compare Obviously with a sound card that has the converters on the map.
I gained so much bass, treble, DEFINITIONS sound stro space, it would be impossible to return to rear.
Stability in ASIO is trs aprciable for never a malfunction of the card will not interrupt a recording CANCEIS ..
With multiple connectivity is the top.
A MODEL also expect that will come out with Edirol USB 2.0, I think it should be a lot.
It remains to see USB 2.0 ....
Espront that the drivers will be updated more frequently.

Edirol DA-2496
I was looking for a card finally srieuse (APRS Isis ... the episode) and the points at which I was paying attention to my choice taient as follows:
Entr 2 XLR phatntom 2 instrument inputs, 4 inputs + 8 outputs, two MIDI ports and many sr's inputs and outputs analog coax and optical.
While the PCI card.
I Charches card "Midas is worry-free" level drivers, got the day and I found. Especially I would not be limited in number of tracks, latency etc ... My choice fell on this map.
I use it to make audio models (I did not used almost noon, except qqes VSTi) with a variable number of tracks.
I have a P4 2.8 ghz with hyperthreading FSB800 (imitation of a Bi ... whether a processor provides REALLY) 1 GB Ram Asus P4 Danelec on a P800 with a 80 GB IDE HDD 133 (not SCSI, and yet no PB) for audio.
IT CAN BE USED I especially Sm following the microphones 58, Beta 57, Rode NT 1000 (electrostatic).
With a couple prsonus BLUETUBE on inputs 3-4 (+ box a rhythm Alesis SR 16).
All on XP Home (no PB)
Wish I could have two XLR inputs and more .... a lot and finally c coupled with a lamp just pramp


Absolutely no problem!
Installation is no ppin under Reserved utlise the latest drivers for XP though sr.

Possibly only catch: to hear the "sound windows" (like the little "click" of Internet Explorer when changing page), must be the frquence of chantillonage on RULES "Rate Locked" in 44KHz. And in cubase, it can not find that frquence if this option is engaged. For rate locked off against if => cubase nickel => no sound windows
I had many falls they tend mnerver sounds windows. And it was not really the purpose of mao.


I bought a month ago some prs (TFW a little more .... I know I'm too dbord right now by my ASRP) and all I can say is that it's the bomb!
Not a single crash, I get zero or latency of 1 ms depending on the project, the headphone output gives no breath (as the other outputs), the acquisition is excellent, and I must say that I even pramps find the best card that my Blue Tube lamps.
I have not had time to push the creature back, but at least 10 tracks at 24 bits buffers with 96 88 (= 1 ms), absolutely no problem. There's my view of the margin!
J'ustilises ASIO 2 drivers, but I entendur that for the EASI Logic gave even better perfs.
Really for me, the combination of 2 XLR inputs + 2 pramp lamps on other inputs, 4 inputs + 8 outputs and the remaining is nickel chrome!
The drivers are stable (I have the Isis forcment therefore account for me!).
No problem with installation (strictly no!).


For me it's rvlation, it folds all my will (except to provide me with the Shur Pensa MK I DSIR for so long, and it does not Coffee Maker) Obviously for more expensive but can be more things like abortion 4 XLR inputs.
I have yet aps russian metter in default, but if I would come from cel.
Personal www.Musicstorekoeln.de 500 euros at, or slightly in France (towed good stores Mao ....) Oooops no ads ... it is worry free!

Edirol DA-2496
- 8 in / 8 out (symtrique XLR and jack asymtriques 6.35)
- 2 pramplis with phantom power to +4 dB /-10dB
- In / out on numrique optical / coaxial S / PDIF
- AD / DA 24bit 96Khz
- 1 MIDI in / 1 out
- Jack BNC word clock in & out
- 1U (but you've become!)

I are used in Windows 2000 PC Systm ASUSTEK P4PE Intel 845PE-SRL 2.533 Mhz Pentium 4 Series A with 1.5 GB DDR2700 80GB HD with precision 7200Trs 8Mo.Petite trs important port are communication with the PC is the meaning pci.c change slower than firewire audio interface or USB or report qualitprix intrressant (but beware the PCI is still the case for most of between us and our config, do not believe sellers who want to sell you all took Most recent internship card or USB firewire).

Used to exit the software runs on a Behringer MX2442 mixing for numrique / analog.

The score of 8 for CHARACTERISTICS justified by the fact that they would still have been able to even 2.3 but more things does not affect the quality or even CHARACTERISTICS Product .


In terms of implementation:
Ultra-fast and easy installation (even if you have to open the monster to put the PCI card)
Gnrale-configuration for all as easy as you may know a minimum tchnique.
-The manual is clear and uncompromising clear prcis and Frans (aka EDIROL ROLAND oblige!)

Let's not be parochial to the implementation note is perfect 10/10


So in terms of the use I will be relatively brief and mostly tell you that this card is a transparent remarquable.Je not remember the track dtails of capacity and latency, but you have What faire.Mon use silent revolves around the plate cubase SX2 + Reason 2.5 + rebirth 2 (yes,) + 2 + recycle some VST and I is not found to limit my inspiration (of course it is if it is a test shoot the fawn).

10/10 SIMPLICIME use


I used that card 3 months before j'tais with AUDIO CREATIVE LABS AUDIGY PLATINUM Ex (yes the name but it throws some shit!). I is not even the xperience of have used a lot of cards but I t fully met by this card because I was expecting exactly ca.Elle bard option is not hardware or software with lots of gadgets it has the minimum and it BPS suffisant.Je me this card is a remarkable transparency, you install it and you do not do most of all beware!
At the time of writing it seems to me that you can find it for you ok 599euros.Bon wolf 400euros for the promotion of this card but you still hit 599.
Do not underestimate EDIROL who is a builder cheap trs serious Unlike a lot.
I sold this card to pass a MOTU 828 mkII therefore a better chouilla good with the DA-2496 can prtendre Taff trs seriously!
Finally today found primarily in card or USB firewire But make no mistake, your first real sound card quality is luxury and Fully PCI is the case (my friends trade trade mfiance!). Malga all you need a PC rcent enough not to overload the PCI.
9 / 10 because the choice in this price range can be diffrent to taste and EDIROL could have some subtle addition to the thing.
