«  If nothing else better ... »

Published on 06/13/14 at 14:58
At the time one map of the price (2000 CHF) with an external rack while 6.35 with 8 inputs 4 outputs, SPDIF in / out RCA, optical and finally midi in / out / thru!!

nothing to write that we must be dreaming if we add that we are in 1995.

UTILIZATION

Yes stable and several updates have been delivered
correct for latency time.

GETTING STARTED

Problems getting it to work properly only because of the Pc config not powerful enough nor sufficiently provided in memory. (Dx2 + 100Mhz 16MB)
Then with a Pentium II (intel chipset and the Via chipset is strongly recommended at this time for computer music) and max memory for its motherboard (380 MB) it was very correct.
Finally, as I used Logic Audio comes with, everything was fine. As soon as I wanted to try another (Cubasis blackjack comes with a purchase) I never ever get something good.
Where audio back to Logic. But it took me "redo" the entire PC to start over clean.

OVERALL OPINION

It was my 1st audio card. I since 1995 I think (it starts to date).
before I was only noon. therefore synth and everything required for replay shebang. the recordings were made k7 (in 1994) and there not multitrack. he had to do everything by noon. then when it's ok to mix and record from noon on the magneto. yeah I said small zicos.

Since I still use it for digitizing LPs.
It keeps me from monopolizing the other PC with its fast track that could do very well yet.
But the performance of the isis in this area are sufficient. So long as the PC on which it is running ..... and then also it amuses me. a certain nostalgia in fact.

In fact, the big disadvantage of vinyl is that it is a carrier of another era. It wears longer it is used.
Where the scritch scratch scrtoch that settles over time.
No, I'm not one of those "melted" who swear by vinyl. However some productions have never been and will probably never recorded on CD.
I learned, however, that a former base of the National Library is precisely this kind of preservation.
But that's just for heritage preservation. Nobody can listen or obtain a copy of digitized recording.
So I make them myself with this card.
She recorded quietly while I do something else or just that I listen to the music.
This is to go on a reliable in terms of what exists today.
Obviously the quality I'm looking for today is not primarily the appointment. However these are the interpretations of the tripe zicos group or tails I'm trying to save for my entourage.
So just for that I gladly would put a good score on the map although these are now much more efficient.
But how Guillemot treated us to the arrival of XP, then triple revenge "0" pointing doubled!
In short, if you have small needs not too expensive and you have an old PC lying around in a corner, go ahead.
Otherwise buy something else. (I'm very happy with the "fast track pro" to which I said a little trick on this forum)
