Jmdbasse38's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Being able to change the configuration I have two cards now and then 16 entries MAXIO super no latency, it is that my microphone is nine (Grosse configuration, but only a 160GB drive) but enough is enough and sound dedicated exclusively to music.

Use recording with Cubase SL3 Group that is enough to do a good job.


We need to find the right slot installationle to install the PCI card, I gallery a little, because the documentation is in English, my PC crashed and did Démarais that in safe mode.
But with the tenacity it always happens for these purposes.
But once installed a treat


Everything is super stable, with a latency of 128, I do not have PB, I record a full battery 7 catches, two guitars, bass, plus witness the way in a taken over with Cubase SL3 even this Just to make quality recordings DEFOIS supperior that found in the trade.
Y mare to all recordings made with the same criteria we Assé to hear the same thing smoothed no life, finally it's my personal taste.


I use it for 2 months, with a PB on an entry will be set by the manufacturer (PB hardware warranty)
Yes I tried Mackie, Tascam, but for the empillage converters, preamp, I did not hesitate one second, it is true that investment is important but the result is there.
Today I have no regrets is a pleasure to work with this equipment

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

I already had a Waveterminal 192x I found hell
I stayed loyal to the brand
use pro
use with Nuendo 3 and Reason 3
the ball


Yes I actually was very simple gallery but
you must install the drivers with the installation CD and then update the site with those
no conflict
config child
manual also


ASIO 2.0, which have proven
no prob stability
near-zero latency (less than 2millisecondes)
I will not record in multitrack so I know


I've had a year's monstrous

I love everything

I tried a lot of things, even some friends in pro tools
there was no momentum and the definition
value for money, a little high, because the scalability of this product is blocked
but otherwise it's probably one of the best cards on the market with the best converters

I do not know if I'll re this choice because I like the gear changes
and ESI for the moment, stopped its activity

seb le sab's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

I bought this soundcard OCCAZ 900th in almost 2 years ago the number of I / O, having frontage in meters, the XLR connectors, hardware features (AD / DA converter standalone interface adat, aes ebu spdif ....) and short at all good on paper. I use it with a mackie onyx1620 in home studio, music production and techno electro show rap / hip hop recording group + rmétal, computer amd athlon XP2800 +, 2GB ram, msi KT4AV, 500GB dd.système installed compressor alesis tl audio and insert on the table or map, (thank you ...), patch strip joemmmeek, KP2 and KP3, Rocktron Vertigo, and echo MONACOR (...), an antique guitar yamaha emx and er1 , mikrokorg, sennheiser e235 microphone, rodes nt2, sm57, 2 Audio Technica over the model that I was doing in live electronica with mackie using analos outputs and mix of securities in the same config.


stable drivers with Cubase Studio 4, no update, and final Maj obsolete, 4ms latency, never more than 16 tracks eneregistrement (with adat and o1v), but no problems


installation without problems, panel config very boring, no inconsistency, Manual 6 pages in English and learn nothing


used for 2 years before I had an ESI ESP1010, an e mu 404, an ac 97 and sb auudigy, and also tested fireface800 edirol FA101, and echo the Fireface is gina.ça level conversion quality, I liked the meters in front, but it made the soul after 2 years, and even for the OCCAZ has 900th sucks, so it's expensive compared to the reliability (1600th new at the time). I had to sell the 3 / 4 of my stuff, and now I have a small m-audio, so no, I have saved with the experience of the 200th + and a private rm fireface800 components does stink .... and circuits are not Suck, and they are very expensive, even I had fun with this card, I 900th through the throat.
