Good entry level sound card

M-Audio Delta 44Published on 10/05/11 at 11:28
The M-Audio Delta 44 has a PCI card that connects to your computer, which is connected to a breakout box via a cable.

This is a four input/output sound card. Up to four tracks can be recorded simultaneously to your home PC DAW. With the virtual mixer in your DAW software, multiple tracks can be recorded, you are only limited by the hardware capabilities of your PC. This means overdubs can be recorded with up to four separate tracks at a time.

There are no MIDI facilities on this card. Multiple Delta 44's can be installed onto the computer for more simultaneously recordable tracks, but I haven't had any experience in performing this operation.

UTILIZATION

I use this hardware with Windows XP Service Pack 2 and haven't had any problems. There is some latency, but this is the nature of the beast with digital audio workstation recordings (on of the big reasons why I record mostly analog).

GETTING STARTED

It is a pretty easy, straightforward installation. If you get confused, just refer to the manual. As with any sound card or other hardware installation, there may be compatibility issues, but I had none with my Dell desktop.

OVERALL OPINION

This is an OK sounding card. Much better sounding cards with better sounding digital converters exist, but not really at this price range, and those installations are a bit more complicated. It served its purpose. For my desktop I know have a Delta 1010, which also adds MIDI and SPIDF, a greater number of channels and direct XLR inputs for microphones. If I could go back in time, I probably should have gotten the Delta 1010 instead, because the type of recording I do usually requires more tracks at a time than a mere four. But, for a solo recordist, four tracks may be plenty.

Originally written by fred le castel on Audiofanzine FR.

The main reason why I bought this sound card is that it was a bargain on ebay. M-Audio products have a very good value for money, they are Mac compatible (I have a Mac G4). I wanted an external interface because they make connections easier. The two ins/outs are enough for me to connect my mixer.

UTILIZATION

Installation was a bit difficult because the seller didn't have the driver nor the user's manual. I found the manual on the M-Audio website but it was much more difficult to find the drivers.

UTILIZATION

Installation was a bit difficult because the seller didn't have the driver nor the user's manual. I found the manual on the M-Audio website but it was much more difficult to find the drivers. M-audio provides only updates but I finally found a website that provided drivers for Mac. Installing the driver was very easy, the general setting is quite simple, the manual is very comprehensive.

GETTING STARTED

The drivers are stable and are updated automatically (there are few updates because it has no bugs). I use it with Logic Audio.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it for a few days. Easy to use, no useless features, wide in/out frequency range. It's a huge difference compared to internal sound cards. Very good value for money. The only reason I would sell it is if I ever need more connections.

Converters of very good quality considering the price, good dynamics, thank you delta

UTILIZATION

Then it is as usual, we cross that it will work right away, and no, like all sound cards, it is a little battles with the IRQ settings of the buffers etc ... but good c is not dramatic, over the gents in the delta are used to problems and have detailed files ready you will be very useful if you are not accustomed to this kind of manipulation ....

GETTING STARTED

For drivers it is very bizzard, it works perfectly on 2000 and XP, for cons for users of 98 or I will consider using the latest drivers DEL2227.EXE that they are more stable and have better latency.

OVERALL OPINION

It's been 3 days I use it, and I am very satisfied with me in 98 I turn 32 vst instruments vst with 6, 40 audio tracks read with a lot of plug and 4-track recording and multi those with a P4 1.5 Mhz. But be careful to perform these feats must still optimize 98, with a little adjustment easily double the performance of his machine .... In conclusion, very good map, I think to be supplemented by the purchase of a case and a delta 66 omni i / o

The four I / O interested me and I could not afford to take the era delta66 (with I / O numrique).

I mainly use the delta44 for some plug ins, AudioMulch.

It works just as well in 2000, Linux (with alsa drivers).

My config: PIII800 on CUSL2 with 256 MB of RAM.

UTILIZATION

Installation is no problem for me under Windows. The drivers are stable and long Fully functional (one and a half).

the pannel of rglage is simple to configure, and latency can drop qqs ms without problem as long as the CPU follows.

I never need the manual

GETTING STARTED

GETTING STARTED

The ASIO drivers are not updated day long, but it is not ncessaire, as they are fully developed.

I test Nuendo in a hundred tracks in playback with EQ, without loss of sync. (But not I use Nuendo).

A 44.1 khz, 16 bit, I latency honnte trs, which I do not impede, for well-made soft drinks.

OVERALL OPINION

With the exprience, I would do this choice, I think. In this price range, there are not many other models with the same quivlanets fonticnnalits, and especially the same quality of sound / operation.
