I was looking for a sound card with enough inputs and outputs to manage my various instruments and my mixer.
I have a PC with a Pentium 4, 2.6Ghz, MSI motherboard with 1 Giga of RAM running Windows XP.
J'utilse a sequencer, Cakewalk Sonar, or with virtual instruments, plug-ins, etc ...


Installation was done without any problem. The drivers are stable and my applications started to work perfectly with a minimum effort, which had not been the case with Marian card I bought a few days ago and I bring the walking.
gnrale configuration is very simple. The settings panel is very user friendly despite a rather crude manue. The only shortcoming is the absence of adjustment of the South (filtering, echo ..).


The drivers are stable trs.
I use Cakewalk, Sonar, WaveLab, Sampletank and some virtual instruments. Latency is very satisfactory, almost imperceptible.
The card seems to work well with Cubase.
The application allows DirectWIRE to juggle applications using different types of drivers, it can be convenient in some circumstances.


I use it for 2 months. I made other tests before this card with another material (Marian Midi March 4) that it has proved impossible to work properly.
It is a bit expensive but it is quiet once it is installed. The rack with 8 inputs / outputs and two MIDI ports provides some comfort.
