ESI WaveTerminal 192M
I chose this card because I needed entries amplified for my guitar and my (future) microphone to record the clarinet. It appears that the preamp is not quite enough but when quite usable. I also wanted a card has very low latency (which is actually the case). The separate outputs does not help me since I have no console.
System: Athlon 1 GB, 512 RAM, 140 GB HDD left in 2. all under Windows 2000, service pack 4.

I have an Iwill motherboard with VIA chipset (no achtez ever! Is my main source of problemesssssss). Aupravant I bought the M-audio quattro (USB) that I had to go after a week because of this :-( (I will soon have a comment about it.


The installation was horrible ... but may be I have not had a chance
I formatted just before and made a disk image before installing the sound card ... This has been a very good ideas as it served me two times. Indeed, the two peremieres times where I installed the card once all installs the PC reboots and the big crash. I had 2 times this symptom. The third installation was good .... So I started playing a little, a plug my guitar and when I left everything again crash. To me the driver is far from perfect. And I have a problem every time I uses the mic (but I do not use the other). So I expect a new version of impatiamment driver before editing anything in the config :-((((


The last updated date of 4 months to date.
I use mainly fruity with vst vsti and sometimes very greedy (moog, GRM tools) or I can get a latency of 1ms if the song is not a 10ms overload if I work alone with full effect and VSTi . (If necessary there is always the direct monitoring function). I play all alone so I only records that 1 track at a time without any pb.

Each change of latency need to restart the application associated (in my fruity).


I use it for 2 weeks. I'm glad a latency point of view quality sound driver problem but let me cruelly on my end (in addition to the problem I've had in the beginning!)
The value for money is very good if the driver is not a pb you.
I would do probably the same choice if I had another mother catre (no updated bios).
I'll see a long and with a new version of driver (when ???).

Map possde 4 in 8 out single on a small rack trs trs practice, frquence Sampling of up to 192kHz, the sound quality is perfect both for recording for reading!

Connects to my PC AMD Athlon 2600 + 512MB ram, no problem, the latency is inaudible!
I use also a master keyboard Evolution MK461C, everything works great!


The installation went well Droulez trs, however, I encountered a problem for Russia in check in line .. CONTRL panel installed with the drivers, configuration is simple trs.
No manual (I bought used)


No problem driver, the latest update on the site builder is older, but there is no problem.
I use Cubase SX, the latency is almost zero! I have forgotten my SB live dj


I use it for a good week, the rack can be very useful, has always quickly rummage derrire the tower!
For my part, the ratio qualitprix is ​​great because I did pay only 107
In short a trs good sound card, perfect for a home studio, recommend!

ESI WaveTerminal 192M
- The 8 outputs motivated my view of the fact that I live. Entries for demos were recorded too.
- From studios amateur
- I have a basic L4S5smg3 motherboard, P4 2390MhZ, strips of corsair 512ram, two Western Digital 80GB hard ......
- .... (See data)


- I have a little gallery in the beginning because it's my first sound card other than integrated into a motherboard. Xp detects, follow the help, and there no problems.
- No no conflict.
- The configuration is relatively simple, it must have some basis. The live wire is a bit complicated but there are fast actions that can have on how nimporte patch.
- Here dessu
- The manual is available online as a PDF. It will become useful only for DirectWIRE (patch inside).


- Never a problem stabilitée
- No it does not often updated but it does not matter to keep them stable.
- I use Reaktor, Ableton ... (See details)
- (Very low)
- 8 outputs, 4 input lines or micro 2entrées + 2entrées lines


- For more than a year
- EXTRAS: the external rack, the numerous inputs and outputs, low latency, is price. Cons: for perfectionists, the cable between the rack and the card is a little short, 30cm and more and it would be nice.
- Yes I tested many other models (motu, edirol and MAUDIO mainly)
- Exelente quality / price ratio
- I think I would take a card with a built-in DSP to host plugs without overloading the processor, but it is not when the same price range!
