Audiofanzine FR's review

Hoontech DSP24 + ADDA2000 / DSP2000 C-Port
Originally written by cardiomax2000 on Audiofanzine FR.

I bought this sound card to record my guitar, bass and vocals. I chose it for its low price and the high number of inputs (allowing you to use it as a mixer). I'm using this sound card with a mid-range computer (256 MB Ram, Intel pentium VI 1,2 Mhz). I also use an amp simulation (Jonson J-station) as a preamp between the guitar and the sound card...

UTILIZATION

Although the manufacturer has no website anymore, you'll easily find the drivers on the web. Easy installation, no sweat. With the last driver version, the PCI card outputs are deactivated so don't try to connect your speakers to the line out...



GETTING STARTED

I haven't experience any problems with the drivers, so I haven't updated them (don't update a good working system... unless you want to add bugs :)). I use it with Cubase 4. I don't remember the exact latency time but it's imperceptible... I never tried to record several channels simultaneously...

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it for one year. I don't regret having bought it and I would buy it again without any hesitation. Summary:
Pros:

* Easy installation (/! with Windows. It seems there are problems with Linux and Mac....)

* Perfect sound

* Many inputs/outputs so that you can use it as a mixer (but don't expect to connect an acoustic drum kit...)

* Driver interface is very easy to understand and to use...

Cons:

* User's manual, but considering the ease of use, it's a minor problem...

* Mac and Linux support

MPFree's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Seven drivers if it would still exist on top !!"

Hoontech DSP24 + ADDA2000 / DSP2000 C-Port
Given the date of my post and given the age of the card and for those who want one: it's a great map with many possibilities, relatively simple to use, yet comprehensive enough to be still in the game.

24-bit 000khz 96, 8 inputs, phantom power, noon, stable drivers and latency more than respectable: what more you want in a home studio ??? The gear as worth € 400/500 nowadays ...

Its only drawback: you need a PC that runs XP or Mac OSX and Linux it seems (and even that?). Far from being (as I have read) card beginner! For the rest read the other comments says it all ...

UTILIZATION

It depends on what you actually saw the possibilities. It ranges from simple vst noon to recording a live band !!

GETTING STARTED

There system setup cable, probably a remnant of the analog era, which is a bit confusing for the novice ...

OVERALL OPINION

At its output, if I had the means, I would have bought one ... probably fallen into oblivion due to the disappearance of the manufacturer's reference and thus the end of the new standards compatible drivers ...

This card is top if derrire, bone and soft are original, is not it!
It is on that you can not make a copy of this card 15 euros which is 600.
To choose, or we do word processing with a copy of Office XP, or it makes music pro with pro hardware, and that goes with it.

UTILIZATION

Ditto!

I bought this sound card to record my guitar, my bass and voix.Son low price and large number of entries (can be used in mixer) have motivated my choice. I use this card on a computer medium power (256MB of RAM with an Intel Pentium VI 1.2 (or 1.4) MHz). I use an amp simulator (Jonson J-station) between the instrument and the card that I use as a preamp ...

UTILIZATION

Although the publisher's website does not work, it's easy to find the latest drivers on the web. Installation is fairly easy, I did not encounter major difficulties. You still have to report the latest drivers with the outputs of the PCI have summers off, there is no need to struggle to connect their speakers to the output "line out" ...

GETTING STARTED

I have no problems with drivers, thus why try to update software already almost perfect (apart from to add bugs )? I use this card with Cubase 4, I do not have figures for latency in mind but it is totally impossible to distinguish ... I have not tried to record several tracks simultaneously on the other hand ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 1 month. What can I say except that I do not regret my choice and I would do it again without hesitation. To summarize:
Assets:
<ul>
Easy installation (/ \ I am talking about Windows, Linux and Mac appears this is not the same story ....)
Perfect sound
A large number of inputs and outputs which lets you use it to mix table (well, everything is relative, do not expect an acoustic drum plug it ...)
A driver interface very easy to understand and use ... </ul>
Cons:
<ul> The manual, but given the simplicity of the thing is true that it is not super important ...
Mac and Linux compatibility

- What technical specifications motivated your choice?
Both pramps microphone, many of the MIDI incorporated the price.

- For what purpose?
Home Recording Studio

- What is your config (motherboard / CPU / Ram / Hard ,...)?
Mac G4 MDD

UTILIZATION

- Installation is it without problem?
Not easy to find the drivers, but I'm out ...

- Have you experienced any incompatibility?
I had only a, incompatibilities ...

On OS X Panther, has passed yet, but the MIDI does not work, driver problem.
Moreover, when the computer goes to sleep, the sound card s'teint, and no way to restart, you have to restarting.

When I pass on Tiger, same problem, but the fact that the sound card will be colored because of the previous day caused the crash systmatiquement the computer.

Since I put Tiger version 10.4.11 day, the sound card does not work carrment more, and kills the ds mac I'm trying to use it.

GETTING STARTED

- The drivers are stable?
Macs drivers do not work, or very little ...

- Are they often put day?
Last update in 2004, and I guess they will do more for Mac.

- What software do you use most often?
Digital Performer

- What you get lag?
Not measured but acceptable. Teachers when I put the effects in Digital Performer quite heavy, but I guess it's no card!

- How many tracks you get record / playback simultanment? ...
8, as planned, no problem for a

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?
I tried to use it for a year and a half, but I give up, it really works more in the latest version of Tiger. Under Leopard, I imagine not even ...
During this time when I even do some recordings with Russi, and when it works, is going.

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
I like the number of entries and opportunities to offer. The sound is adequate.

I do not like (apart from problem to read Mac drivers): the fact that the XLR is not screwed to chssis just soldered to the motherboard, a fragile normment connections, and I have to unplug my habit of Cables after recording finished ...

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
No.

- How do you report qualitprix?
I bought occas 170 euros last year. For what I have done, and seen the dysfunction, I put 40 euros. So, I find plutt bad.

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
Knowingly, ever.
I'll sell it to buy a FIREPOD, I am a sr that will work on my Mac, at least.

In conclusion, this card may be good for PC users, but never of ST Audio prtendre it could run on Mac.
The lack of MIDI oprationnelle, the problem of extinction irrversible when the computer goes to sleep, then crashes and violent systmatiques since I pass by the Tiger makes perfectly useless.
I often return to the small between Stereo mini jack on the back of my G4 tower to record ...

So Apple users, go your way without hsiter.

PRIZE: 200 for 8 / 8 I / O with digital output from I function!
Also: 2 pramps microphones, a power supply fantme, a MIDI I / O. Map the most complte I find this price!
What use: self-produced albums
My config: PC 2.2GHz, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD
Instruments: vocals, percussion, keyboards, guitars

UTILIZATION

Trouble-free installation, latest drivers available on the site.
No incompatibility.
Configuation a little weird: the driver is visual trs, it is virtually connect the rack into the sound card, redesign the routing. Not empty at first.
Manual: succinct. I dbrouille in gnral, it works.

GETTING STARTED

Stable drivers: enough. Another time, I have a crash (with a beautiful sound relacture loop buffer of 256 ms, imagine). It's pretty rare, once a month for use almost daily.
Bundled software: Logic Audio 24. I love, I use the bottom.
Latency of 256 ms. For me, going.
How many channels at once: 8 recording without crashing.

Note: My PC is disconnected from the network, is dpourvu antivirus and firewall. These software have gnral, from my exprience
, Bad behavior with audio apps. In other words, a PC audio ddi works better without them!

OVERALL OPINION

I have 3 years. The sound is good trs (I work 44.1/24bits), the pramps correct.
I do it again this choice without hsiter. EXCELLENT quality price ratio.

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

Hoontech DSP24 + ADDA2000 / DSP2000 C-Port
In the era I bought 400 (aujourdui is the argus a 170!) For 8E / S, I think we can not find cheaper for the qualitbr /> I l uses it only for outputs, mono 8 to a console.

My config: P4 with a 768 (!) Of RAM (not much either ...)

UTILIZATION

Once we found the correct drivers there are no worries even for a novice config
(Tolra it difficult for other sound cards against, potential conflicts)

GETTING STARTED

No worries of drivers.
I use it with AcidPro CONTRL and my home studio in the afternoon and it does rev well.
Latency is reasonable trs.

OVERALL OPINION

I have been using 4 or 5 years, and I'm not prt to change.
I had an Echo Layla (which has the silent era CHRE much), but I sold the APRS trying Hoontech.
I do it again this choice without any problem, I urge all around me.

OVERALL OPINION

Good for short, is a price / quality ratio Imbat.
I used it for several years and this card gave me that satisfaction.
It is true that I have handled some drivers but not as complicated as some people traveling on wheels well hinted, after 15 + mins to install the settings.
The sound quality is really good except for the multimedia tour is to forget.
I only use the analog multitrack, I was very pleased.
I replaced it with a MOTU 2408 that has all the digital I / O I needed.
I was going to forget the Hoontech also manages 32 midi channels.
Conclusion: If you do not have too many tunes to invest and you still want a quality map should not hesitate a moment, because if you have more money then you can take more (mostly more expensive) but considering the price ridiculous that you pay aurra Hoontech you can be sure that you will lose nothing.
I give the note takes into account the quality / price the sound quality in general
